What do you listen to while you workout?
I do believe a topic like this would belong in the Training Forum, seeing as how it has to with what music we listen to and what music motivates us while training. I figured I'd make a thread for all of us to share our playlists with one another, so those of us with iPods, or whatever you use, can have some variety to listen to while we're in the gym.
All I know is, I need a new iPod. I can't stand listening to the same sh!t on XM Radio, which they play in my gym. Nelly Furtado and other poppy sh!t just doesn't cut it for me, lol.

yes i know what you mean about listening to the same music over again, that happens at my school! but where i train we can change the stereo ourself, i sometimes take my I-Pod, make sure u have music that motivates you like heavy metal, rap, rock etc... trust me i decided to try working out to some R&B and some soft pop etc and it was one of the worst workouts ever...
a few examples of what i listen too:
Armin Van Burren
MOS (Ministry of Sound)
The list is endless, be careful though even though loud music motivates it can be harmful, i found it can even affect my workouts, so have it at a realistic level!!!

I listen to something similar to the soundtrack of 'A Night At the Roxbury' and Darren Hayes. A lot of Darren Hayes's music is very trance and techno. In case you don't know, he's the vocalist from Savage Garden. A lot of his solo stuff is pretty good.

Iron Maiden, Pantera, Ensiferum, Dragon Lance, Godsmack, Slayer, Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold
Anything loud hard and fast where they don't sound like a roaring lion is cool by me. Talk about intense workouts.

Atreyu and Hell Yeah only get a handful of songs played during my workouts, b/c they only have a handful of songs that I can stomach.

Atreyu/Avenge Sevenfold/Mastadon/Bullet for my valentine/Rage against the machine/
All good for working out, for HIIT cardio I choose like Andy C/Grooverider/Pendulum/The Prodigy/ and pretty much any good drum 'n bass
01-06-2008, 12:10 PM
01-06-2008, 12:20 PM
Pendulum - Hold your Colour (Just Torrent the whole album)
Pendulum - Jungle Gold sound (Album)
The crystal method - Legion of Boom (theres a torrent for 7 cd discography)
Man practically everything by theprodigy is good.
Also Anything by infected mushroom too
try mininova/isohunt/piratebay for good tor's
01-06-2008, 12:27 PM
I have a friend who's into Infected Mushroom. I just never bothered to give them a listen, but I'm gonna sample some stuff on CDNow and download anything I like.
Thanks for the suggestions, man.
If you like anything Industrial, then try giving Rammstein a listen. They're German, but you can get some of their music in English as well. Even if you can't understand their language, a lot of their music is pretty intense. I have yet to see them live, but would love to sometime. Maybe when my buddies and I go to Germany for Oktoberfest within the next year or two. Those guys are f-ucking crazy! Look some of their concert footage up on Youtube. I don't think I'd ever be able to set myself on fire, or wear a flamethrower on my face that constantly spits out fire.

First post here, I'm new to the forum. Hello everyone!
Just wanted to say that I'm suprised nobody has mentioned HATEBREED yet! Nothing works quite as well for me as their music.
It's not just the music that drives me through a tough lifting session, but also the lyrics are very inspirational and positive.
Metal/Hardcore fans, give it a go if you haven't yet. You won't be disappointed!
01-10-2008, 08:33 AM
techno when i do cardio.
usually hiphop when i lift, it provides a nice beat for lifting cadence and aggression.
sometimes hardcore/metal, IE in flames, Etown concrete, madball, all that remains.

Seether just about always does it for me. There is also...
-Three Days Grace
-Staind (older stuff)
-The Crystal Method
I'm always looking for some modern rock bands that kind of sound like Seether or a harder version of Chevelle.
01-10-2008, 01:24 PM
Metal and rock for me. Practically all of the "Supremacy" and "Perserverance" albums by Hatebreed (my sig). Slipknot, Rage Against The Machine, Dry Kill Logic, Limp Bizkit, it all gets me pumped and raises my aggression...
01-10-2008, 01:26 PM
Awesome Fatstrings, I feel the same way with songs like "Facing What Consumes You" "A Call for Blood", "To The Threshhold", "Perserverance", their lyrics are perfect for lifting.
01-10-2008, 01:29 PM
What's in your mp3/CD player/cassette player?
Sound Garden, Pearl Jam, Tool, Linkin Park, Nirvana, STP, System of a Down, Drowning Pool, Mudvayne, Godsmack (older stuff), Disturbed, RATM...

Rap. I absolutely can not stand rock. Dont know why I just loathe it. Raps really the only thing I listen to when working out. Outside I do listen to bans like cartel, red jumpsuit apparatus (sp?), panic at the disco.
Weird combo I know......

I listen to a bunch of random sh!t. Sometimes it's hip hop like Lil Wayne, sometimes it's angry stuff like August Burns Red. I have a very wide range of music that I like. Whatever I feel like at the time.
August Burns Red
