Workout Songs

            Songs and Music Videos To Work Out With

                                           By Anna P.

 

When I work out I like to listen to music to pump me up and also watch the music videos of the song. Here I have a list of songs to get pumped up for and the music videos that go along with them

Shape of You by Ed Sheeran If you want to get in shape to impress someone or have then love the shape of your body then I recommend listening and watching this music video. The song has Ed sheeran singing about a love interest he has and how hot the person looks like. It’s a good motivation song because it can help motivate someone by exercising to get the shape to impress someone you like. Also the music video involves people exercising so you can  feel like you’re not the only one working out. P.S. However you should never exercise too much that it is unhealthy or trying to have unrealistic standards.

Now this is going to sound strange for a workout song but one workout song that works at least for me is Let It Go. This works because it calms me down to the point that I don’t worry when I am exercising. Sometimes when I work out I look at the clock and get anxious if I am going to finish it or not.Let it go calms down the anxiousness.

The last song is a legend and works for nearly everyone. This song is eye of the tiger. When I listen to the song though I watch it when its on an amv. AMV stands for anime music video and what it is taking certain scenes from the anime shows and put a song over the clips.The best one with eye of the tiger song I recommend is this one. Its goku from Dragon Ball Z he trains to fight his enemies and the action scenes help with getting pumped up.

This movie takes place in the Medieval Era during the days of King Arthur. The locations in this movie are Juliana and Kayley’s Home, the Forbidden Forest, Dragon Country, the Rock-Ogre’s Cave and Camelot.

A Message to all Apple Haters

I’ve been a huge fan of Apple since 2006 since I got my very first Apple product: Late 2006 20 inch iMac.  And over the years, I’ve been constantly learning more and more about computers like CPUs, Hard Drives, Operating Systems, etc.  But I mainly prefer Apple products because Apple offers some incredible technology in their Operating Systems like the Graphics API Metal, a powerful encryption and security system, and Project Catalyst which allows developers to easily put their existing iPhone and iPad Apps to the Mac.

 

But I obviously know that a lot of People don’t think the same way as I do.  During my time in High School, I talked about Apple a lot and some of my friends are okay with it and others would give me a bunch of backlash that I never needed at all.  To make matters worse, I heard recently in 2019 that Apple is the most hated company in the internet and outside of the internet, and people are saying nasty comments in the comment fields in Apple articles.  There’s also some YouTube videos about people being very biased and saying things that are not true. Even though some YouTube videos are full of false information about Apple, there are more likes than dislikes in those videos which really triggered me a lot.

 

All of this hate has really made a lot of Apple Fans discouraged including myself.  So I have something to say to all Apple haters. Show some respect to some people that prefer something that you don’t like.  This doesn’t apply to Apple, Google, and Microsoft. It also applies to other things like people prefer vegetables over fruit.  So please show some kindness and respect to Apple Fans and we’ll do the same for you guys.
