We asked, you answered. Overwhelmingly so. We put a call out on Facebook asking our readers to tell us what songs get them pumped to hit the weights, hit the pavement and everything in between. Once again, you came through with your top picks to get pumped for May. We compiled your choices into three workout playlists by genre—metal, rap/hip-hop and rock/pop. Play them yourself and see if these tracks help you hit a personal best.
