While it was the 1770s when we got our independence from England, it was the 1970s that provided some of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll music to work out to. Sure, the decade was much-derided for being the era of disco, but it was about so much more than that.
Motivation is hard to come by in the gym sometimes. Having a personal trainer or partner to push you is one thing, but working out by yourself is often tough, boring, and monotonous. That’s where good music comes into play. Music is often known as the international language; which means the beat or rhythm is understood no matter where you are or what language is being spoken or sung. Good music not only pumps you up, but it triggers wave patterns in the brain (proven by research) to get you going as well.
It’s hard to go anywhere or do anything without music somewhere in the mix. Driving in your car, shopping, cooking, cleaning, or running/exercising. Music seems to influence our moods whether it be slow love songs or head-banging rock and roll. With that being said, below is a list of the top 70’s songs that will help pump you up and motivate you during your next intense workout session. Stay tuned for the top 80’s, 90’s, and today’s top workout songs. Good luck!
