Weight Lifting Playlist (a hip hop state of mind)

Lifting weights has become a new passion of mine...
It's so freeing and therapeutic. I almost love it more than nail polish. Almost. 
It's taken me some time to figure out what kind of music I like to listen to when I "Go Lift", but I finally figured it out. Weight room music is not the same as regular old workout music. A cardio playlist should be chosen to make you move, to sweat & burn calories. Lifting weights is a different kind of burn. It needs to be calm, yet hype. I want a beat or rhythm that triggers my inner beast & inspires me to push harder to get results, but yet it's chill enough that I can take my time and keep proper form. So here is what I listen to...
Is this playlist not THE BUSINESS or what??? I love it!! Every couple of weeks I add new songs, just to try and stay current. Or I may delete a track, if I'm just not feeling it anymore. Obviously, you can tell who my favorite artists are, but I need more females. Help me out y'all!! Give me some good female artists that I can add here, or any other artist you think may be good to lift to. Or, do you even lift?

Thanks for reading!!


  1. I will have to try some of these songs, I am getting ready to go back to the gym after having a baby last month! I love lifting too, but it will take me a while to get back into it, I always start with cardio if I haven't been working out in a while! I know I always say this but I love your blog, you blog about such a cool variety of things!

    1. Oh wow! Congrats on the new little one. Yes take your time and ease back into it. I love cardio but I'm trying to limit how much I do because I'm losing muscle mass when I lose fat. Trying to find a good balance. Thank you for the nice comments too. I'm slowly getting back to blogging. I have so many drafts that I havent completed. Instagram just took over!!

    2. haha i am just starting to get into instagram, maybe I shouldnt! lol
