Tuesday’s Tune: Bang Bang

This song is fairly new and really upbeat. Plus, can you go wrong with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J? I haven’t heard too much from Ariana Grande but I do like what I have heard. They each have their own distinctive voice and style, and putting them together in this song was just awesome. It’s one of my favorite songs in Zumba to dance to, and also just to dance to in my living room when I’m home alone. I definitely want to jump around more when it comes on, which is good for neither running nor lifting, but it does bring a little extra energy. I have to stay clear of lots of jumping right now because this beauty is healing up:

I got it on Sunday so it’s still pretty fresh and I have to baby it for a week or two, therefore a lot of my workout intensity has to be cut, but it’s no big deal because I’ve been killing myself all quarter. I do have to remind myself that the reason why I’m not pushing myself at the moment is because I’ve got an open wound on my arm, but it’s totally worth it. For those of you who don’t speak Japanese it roughly translates to pretty/beautiful (woman) warrior/guardian. The text is backwards because snapchat doesn’t flip your photos.

If you need an extra push this week watch this video, add the song to your playlist, and get your blood pumping!


Tuesday’s Tune

This week I’ve got Immortals by Fall Out Boy from the new Disney animated featureĀ Big Hero 6 stuck in my head. I had it on repeat in the gym yesterday and probably will today as well since today is leg day.

It’s got a powerful beat that lifts you up and makes you want to drive through your workout. Considering they played this song during the montage where everyone gets their super powers, it’s pretty fitting for a workout. Hopefully it can get me through mine today.

And it’s not just a good workout song. It’s a great song by a great band. My best friend and I used to fangirl over their new albums and she burned me all kind of mix CDs mostly filled with Fall Out Boy. I used to dance around my room rocking out to their music when I was a freshman in high school. Definitely add this to your playlist.

Well, I can’t procrastinate going to the gym any longer. That’s it for your Tuesday Tune. If you have any songs you’d like to recommend for upcoming Tuesday Tune posts let me know.
