Everyone I know has that go-to song–or songs–for a new max attempt, new rep PR, or just grinding out that last set when you’re fighting to just stay on your feet. What are yours?
Personally, I get so in the zone that I forget to put music on more sessions than not, but when I remember, I have a few that I go back to time and again.
I know naming the band is gonna put some people off, but Emperor’s New Clothes by Panic! At The Disco is such a good hype song. If you really get into the character of it, it adds at least two inches to your self-perceived penis size.
I like deadlifting heavy to Bleed It Out, by Linkin Park.
A lot of my training sessions are done with Hollywood Undead in the background because so many of their songs have that cocky, self-confidence-booster feel, but a couple of favorites are City and Party By Myself.
And lastly, if I just need something fast-paced and heavy in the background to keep the pulse pounding, I keep Devin Townsend/Strapping Young Lad on shuffle. His screaming/growling is great, but his cleans are just beautiful.
