Few experiences are as sacred as being in the middle of a strenuous exercise in the gym, where your muscles tremble with fatigue and your mind asks you to stretch the pin, when a classic banger enters the gym stereo to watch you shoot session. Whether it’s increasing the tempo in time or just hitting this treadmill with a faster clip thanks to some high-paced songs, the effect that music can have on our workouts is quite significant, for not to mention the impact it has on our desire to coach.
A man who certainly lacks motivation when it comes to his training routine is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. It seems that the actor exists permanently in a complete state and, when it comes to increasing the intensity of a training, he is a “yes” man who does not need more encouragement. For his upcoming film, in which Johnson will play comic book antihero Black Adam, the actor is entering the best shape of his life. Of course, we thought he was already there, but with Instagram, Johnson has regularly shared clips of his gym workouts.
One thing fans have noticed is that Johnson often posts about the music he listens to while working. He often shares songs that have a lot of rotation when he trains and even gives fans a playlist of his favorites on music streaming platforms. Recently, he even sent a call for fans to recommend their own gym anthems – you know, the songs that come out for everyone to exclaim, “A classic! What a tune!”
Now, Johnson has done it partnered with Spotify to launch the “Iron Paradise Tour” playlist, which has basically brought together all the basic tunes from your gym session in one place, so when you go to the gym you can be sure you’ll have an intense session.
“It’s not the dog that’s in the fight, it’s the fight that’s in the dog,” Johnson wrote in the title, quoting lyrics from Mike Zombie’s “Get Up on My Level,” with the voice played by Mike’s sister. Johnson right, Aja Elan. Johnson has long been known to be a fan of classic rock, and there are certainly strong gestures on the playlist that includes characters like ZZ Top’s “Jesus Just Left Chicago” and The Eagles ’“ Hotel California ”. The rest, though, are pretty modern, with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj making an appearance as well.
