My momentum with the diet and fitness has been very positive this month, so far. I’ve been doing the training 5 days a week, eating right most of the time, and generally thinking positively in recent weeks. Part of the inspiration is this:
Some more inspiration comes from a customized t-shirt that I got to design and had sent to me for free from my favorite protein powder supplier, Isopure. Here’s what the back of the t-shirt looks like:
The rest of the inspiration comes from the soundtrack at the gym, believe it or not. And I’m really starting to get bored with my playlist. It’s not that songs like “Blackened” by Metallica don’t get me pumped any more; it’s one of my favorite songs ever. It’s more like I want to mix it up with some new tracks that would really move things forward.
So I’m fishing for your ideas. I want to get some of your thoughts for music to train to. [I’ll tell you right now, if you suggest “St. Anger” by Metallica, I will not approve your comment because we all know that song will give you shin splints.]
I’ll kick it off with a few fresh selections that are not currently on my shuffle.
- “Push it to the Limit” by Paul Engemann (Famous for being in Scarface)
- “Hearts on Fire” by John Cafferty (Famous for being in Rocky IV)
- “Unstable” (Also known as The Ultimate Warrior’s WWF theme)
- “N*ggas in Paris” by Jay Z. and Kanye West
