Time on the field during the season doesn't come without time spent in the weight room during the offseason, so high school athletes from around Northeast Ohio are spending part of their summer vacation training for the upcoming fall sports season.
But, as anyone who has ever tried to stick with a workout regiment knows, one sometimes needs a little extra motivation to get through that day's training session.
For many, listening to a particular song does just that, so we recently asked the high school athletes who follow us on Twitter to help us create the ultimate workout mixtape by tweeting us the songs that keep them going during a grueling exercise routine.
The responses we received are below. After reading them, join the conversation by connecting with USAtodayhss.com/Cleveland through Facebook and/or Twitter. Your motivational song suggestions will be added to the story.
