Since the beginning, rap music has radiated a strong sense of machismo. The Alpha Male, boss-like attitude has been echoed by nearly every MC to pick up a mic. In a field where the last thing you want to do is come off as weak among your peers, almost no one is willing to let their guard down in fear of looking “soft.” Of course, there are a few exceptions.

Fittingly, there’s no shortage of literal and metaphorical flexing going on in rap. Whether they’re pushing weight, running laps around the competition, or just balling out, rappers love to sprinkle fitness themes into their bars. Check out the best lyrics we found, which range from humorous to downright intimidating, with The Best Workout Lines Dropped in Rap History.
