What Music Do You listen to while lifting?

Back in the day when I was into that **** I was the ******* with his arms flailing all over the place. Boston definitely had one of the most violent scenes anywhere. Crazy ****. But if that is the scene you are introduced to, that is the norm that you follow. I will say that I was never one to intentionally hit anyone, but if I was doing spin kicks or windmills across the floor and you happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time...
I took my share of bruises. Definitely keep the women away from the pit if you are at a show in Boston.

Oh yeah, Boston has always been known for having that tough guy scene. I heard that Blood For Blood shows were always crazy with FSU and what not. My brother used to be pretty heavy into the scene when he lived in Portland, and he was pretty crazy about that ****.

My ex could hold her own, hell you should have seen some of our fights. One that'll never leave my mind was when she was yelling at me (I'm naturally passive) & I was just sitting there kind of letting things slide & she got up & started hitting me. I pinned her against a wall & threw a punch right next to her head. I of course broke through the wall & said, "If you ever touch me again I'll walk out of your life & write you off." She never touched me since. I'd never hit a girl though & it takes more than just **** talking for me to fight someone. In fact, I'd probably have to get hit first.Originally Posted by Whiskey Steve
Pitts are a whole different story. It's my release for all the bull**** I bottle up in life. I'm usually the guy throwing punches in the air & doing spin kicks. I wait till no one is really around though & when someone hits the floor, I help em up as fast as I can as to no one likes getting trampled.
Either way, if that was my ex that got hit by that guy, she probably would've gone in the pitt after him.
Hmm..I think I'm missing someone.
Ohh yea, some other bands, Flogging Molly & Dropkick Murphys.

2 of the sickest modern metal bands around: ILL NINO & DEVILDRIVER
if you have a pair you will buy any of their cd's and play them as loud as possible
devildriver's lead singer used to lead for coal chamber in case anyone is wondering...and as far as ill nino, they are slowly taking over the entire hardcore/metal scene.
the bands i listed are comprable if not better and heavier in some cases to hatebreed and disturbed. THEY WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.

Portland, Maine? There was a pretty crazy hc scene up there too. Actually, a Portland show was basically a Boston show. Same people made the trek. I used to go to BFB shows when I was like 15 or 16. Scary ****, but I came to love it.Originally Posted by fbxdan
Any time there were girls near the pit I just stayed away. I never wanted to be that guy who hit the girl. \
I hear you on picking people up, xxtruthxx1. When people were cool, the scene was the ****. Violence ruined it. I think the best scenes were in Queens and Long Island. They had the right blend of dancing hard and respect. Met lots of good peeps in those places.

That is such a good idea.....holy ****Originally Posted by xxtruxx1
Ive had stupid girl friends in the past that would hit me because they knew i wouldn't hit them back. And there was also something funny to them about hitting a guy that weighs 210 (ive lost a lot of mass since then from illness and whatnot). But ya, im sure if you punched a hole through the wall right next to their face they would definitely get the point...

when i really want to **** some **** up i put on music that reminds me of my ex. when i get worked up over her i kinda scare myself sometimes

back in november, as i was getting ready to max at 600 in the squat, down with the sickness by disturbed came on. we had the varsity weight room to ourselves for our max outs, so they cranked it up. just as i got ready to squat that ****, the part where he starts freaking out about his mother came on. now, i actually have a very postitive and close relationship to my mother, but for some reason that song translated over to my first ex. needless to say, i got the new max at 6 bills, a 75 pound increase from 7 weeks earlier.

KoRn and old RATM. Some will hate on me for KoRn, but they can also kiss my sweet ass in return
In all seriousness, seeing them live front row both times, ****ing awesome experience!

I usually listen to hip hop but Ive been wanting to listen to something else. The only rock I have even come close to is Linkin Park. I know it isn't exactly rock but thats the closest I have gotten. What are some good ones out now? You guys say Disturbed is good?
01-02-2006, 12:23 PM
I usually throw my iPod on when I don't feel like talking to anyone. In reality I'm not really even listening to the music.
I do enjoy the band Death quiet a bit though.

Lately....the last 2 songs before I go into the gym are Anthrax-Skeletons in the Closet...and Anthrax - Indians.
I'd use my MP3 player, but I've kinda liked not being connected to anything while working out lately. Weird.

pantera, old metallica, slayer, tool, stabbing westward, and every so often in an odd mellow mood Johnny Cash or George Jones.
01-11-2006, 11:59 PM
I'm so behind the times, clueless on who these bands are.
I grew up on 70s rock, still have Nugent, Aerosmith, etc. in my Zen player, the most contemporary additions would be the Foofighters and the Stone Temple Pilots.
Can anyone suggest bands a relic like myself might want to check out?

My ex-roommate and I got up on stage with pennywise at the warped tour 3 years ago. It was a wild time!!! We snuck back-stage and saw them sitting around, so just asked them if they would bring us up. They said sure and got us up there, it was AMAZING!Originally Posted by glenihan

This is a really weird problem I have. I CANNOT wear headphones in the gym. Does anyone else experience this?
Whenever I have headphones on my breathing/heartbeat begin to regulate themselves in time with the beat of the music....
I have read studies that have proven this is a natural response to music, but was wondering if you guys feel the same? I got an Ipod nano from my girl for my birthday and cant even use it in the gym
01-12-2006, 09:36 AM
Radiohead is my suggestion it gets better the more you listen to it.Originally Posted by Rogue Drone
I mostly liked Led Zep , Rush etc but decided to update my music a couple of years ago. some good nu metal bands are Mudvayne and disturbed and Godsmack proably will suite you

angrier NIN songs
Linkin Park (it's throw-away music but it pumps you up)
Led Zeppelin - Kashmir (makes feel like big things are happening)
System of a Down
Some Trance as well
