Put your weight on it!

[The Disco Godfather (January 1980)]

Phrase used to exhort one to give his all to a particular task. Most effective when shouted more than once.

From the motion picture The Disco Godfather, where Rudy Ray Moore plays Tucker Williams, flamboyantly-attired owner of a disco club. During an extended dance sequence at the club, Moore grabs the mic and inexplicably and repeatedly yells at the crowd “Put your weight on it! Put your weight on it! Put your weight on it!”
