If you want to get your blood flowing to get the best possible workout while trying not to break out dancing, this playlist is a must-have in your music library—even if your mom yells at you for listening to it.

Featuring songs from the top charts such as 24KGoldn’s “Valentino,” alongside throwbacks like Kanye West’s hit “Stronger,” the depth and hype of these songs will keep you motivated to do that extra rep you didn’t think was possible.

When you begin your workout, Post Malone’s “Over Now” will give you the extra push to start off strong. “Over Now” conveys Malone’s perseverance and how not letting a toxic situation stand in the way of his ambitions which in turn he sings with heart, the best kind of workout motivation. The passion he performs within this song will push you to be the best and to settle for nothing less.

A song that would be at the top of Da Vinci’s playlist, Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar’s “Mona Lisa” grants the listener five minutes of straight power. What could be considered a modern-day masterpiece, Lil Wayne raps about how what you see is not what you get and all you need is your own pride, the reason any athlete trains. The soul and strength in his voice will push any athlete to their max.

Finally, end your endeavor with The Weeknd’s “Heartless;” the upbeat tempo and smooth voice will help you cool down while also celebrating your accomplishments in the gym.

Training your body requires intensity and a rush of adrenaline, not pop divas telling you that you were born this way. You won’t even break a sweat listening to your dad’s mowing the lawn playlist while exercising. If you listen to Brinda’s playlist while working out, you can kiss your New Year’s resolution goodbye and go back to the couch while eating Cheetos and playing Fortnite.
