What songs get you in the zone at the gym

I'm looking for some new songs to listen to when I workout so I thought this thread could help fellow gym goers out that are getting sick of their songs too. Everyone has those songs that they listen to when they don't feel like working out that day or they listen to before they lift heavy to get their mind right. Here are some of my favorites:



Never listened to music at the gym. Wish it had the effect of pumping me up
Gotta admit I also don’t like listening to music working out, it just distracts more than it helps focus or pump me up. I just like to focus on the task ahead and push through any struggles.

Music mostly distract me during an heavy exercise where i need max concentration to maintain a perfect form.

I listen to music when i have light hearted exercises, not with complicated routines.

I prefer music while beating a punch bag, to maintain a certain rythm.

I have the usual kind of workout playlist that everyone else uses, but when I hit that squat machine Baby Shark is the only tune that will allow me to power through the pain.
