Best Workout Songs of 2013 – Part I: Strength Training

This post doesn’t need much introduction, since anyone who’s been reading my blog since I started it knows that workout music is just about my favourite thing to post about, and when I take a little LOA from the blog, I usually return with a playlist to get back into the swing of things.

I didn’t find myself too taken with a lot of the music that was released in 2013, in the sense that I didn’t run out (well I guess no one really runs anywhere to buy music anymore) and buy full albums. I did, however, become obsessed with a few songs, and I’m still listening to many of my discoveries from earlier this year daily…which is a good sign.

I decide to split these songs into different posts based on how I “use” them most often – weight lifting, running/cycling, or other cardio. Oh, and a warning: I listened to an awful lot of hip hop/rap this year. Not sure why.

And on that note, away we go.
