'Suicide Squad's Songs Are Prime Workout Music

by Jenn Ficarra

Everywhere you look, it seems our favorite actors are being courted to play superheroes and supervillains in Marvel and DC movies. Not that I'm complaining, of course. I'll take any chance to stare at Chris Evans' biceps for two hours. And while these stars might be part of different comic universes, there is one thing they all have in common when prepping for their roles: the intense training. The actors go through rigorous workouts to prep for their roles, and their hard work definitely shows in the final product. The cast of Suicide Squad went through extensive training for the upcoming film and so it's only fitting, really, that the soundtrack to Suicide Squad would be chock-full of songs that would motivate anyone at the gym.

The Suicide Squad soundtrack won't be released until August 5, when the movie comes out, but when it is, trust me and buy the album. The songs on the soundtrack are motivating as hell. I mean, I've been listening to the same three songs on repeat at the gym all week (in the hopes of getting Margot Robbie's body) and they're all from the Suicide Squad soundtrack. And so, without further adieu, here are the best songs from the Suicide Squad soundtrack that will motivate you and help you get the most intense workout worthy of a supervillain. Ranked from decent to best, here we go:

8. "Fortunate Son" — Creedence Clearwater Revival

A steady jam that will start your workout out on the right foot. Not the best song to jam to, but it will get the job done.

7. "Without Me" — Eminem

A decent workout song that'll definitely get you motivated on the elliptical.

6. "I Started A Joke" — ConfidentialMX Feat. Becky Hanson

The whole song isn't released yet, but I'm seriously into this snippet for some crazy yoga.

5. "You Don't Own Me" — Grace Feat. G-Eazy

I seriously, seriously love this song. It's slower so it's not ideal to run to but maybe some abs & arms can benefit from G-Eazy's silky voice.

4. "Purple Lamborghini" — Skrillex & Rick Ross

Sprints in 5...4...3...2...1!

3. "Gangsta" — Kehlani

This is the ultimate song for an intense full body workout. Bring on the medicine balls and resistance bands.

2. "Heathens" — Twenty One Pilots

Imagine the tap backs you could do to this song? Already dying to spin to this.

1. "Sucker for Pain" — Lily Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons W/ Logic & Ty Dolla $ign Feat. X Ambassadors

Any aggression or emotion you have? Take it out on the treadmill, the punching bag, the yoga mat, whatever to this song. If this doesn't motivate you then I don't know what will. This is the best song on the soundtrack to listen to for a kickass workout.

The entire Suicide Squad soundtrack will be released soon, but if these eight songs are any indication, the rest of the tracklist will be just as motivating and just as badass. I can't wait to listen to it and hit the treadmill. After all, I might not play a superhero or supervillain, but I can still train like one.
