Top 10 Workout Songs Of 2009

Music plays an important role in my workouts, and there is no doubt that a good song can push me through a tough boxing workout, keep the pace up in a cardio session, or push me to my limits in a strength and conditioning workout.

I do find however, that many songs played in gyms might have the right beat for a workout, but the songs themselves, when taken out of the workout context, are just downright bad.

I love to listen to music, and now with 2009 at a close, I thought I would put together a list of my top ten workout songs of the year. These songs were not only great for my workouts, but were some of my favourite songs, and came from some of my favourite albums of the year.

I hope you enjoy my list:
