For those of you who have followed me on Youtube for awhile you probably already have an idea of what kind of music I like to train to. On some older videos I had to mute the sound back before you could keep the song and give recognition. My music taste overall covers a wide range, but when it comes to hitting the gym my music preference typically fall within the hip hop genre. Below is my top 10 list of favorite songs for boxing workouts, as the years have gone on these songs have regularly found their way back to my mp3 Boxing folder (or on my mix CD’s back in the day).

I appreciate that everyone likes to workout to different sounds, music brings out different moods and aspects of our motivation and creativity. Feel free to leave your top 10 list in the comment’s section, or top 5, or even top 3 if that’s all that comes to mind right how.
