"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"

of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."

MUCH of that "something."

one thread you can guarantee to find on a fitness related board is workout music. I know that here we have had multiple threads about this in the past, but not one for a couple of months, and as Dr Darden says, the board is now more popular than ever.
In my opinion, workout music should have the following effects on the listener: it should be uplifting, positive, inspiring - anything that ultimately motivates the listener.
With that in mind, why dont we recognise our current favourite workout music?
Sorry..can't help. Personally, I don't listen to music when working out. Oh sure there music playing at the gym, but they keep it on one the "moldy-oldie" stations so I don't pay much attention to it. I thought about using something like an iPod with my own music but overall I would find it distracting.
Well,I searched the site for some recommendations on workout music. My conclusion, having been a teenager in the 80's, is to stick to about 11 of Motley Crue's harder songs. It keeps me a little more focused on intensity than a few of the other recommendations.
Working out had a big influence on my musical tastes. In the early 90s I didn't like most heavy metal music.
My best friend was all into it, and lent me a Pantera tape to train to. (He questioned my manhood for liking The Cure and Depeche Mode.)Man oh man, that music catapulted me into another training dimension! I trained so much harder with Pantera, Metallica, Slayer, Sepulchura etc. blasting in my ears.
I still like real heavy music, but my worldview is so radically different than back then, and I don't like the underlying philosophy of most of the bands anymore. So I don't listen to most of them.
But I still love Metallica, and love training to their music.
After I got into this whole exercise thing I also started discovering more of the heavier metal music.
I still love Depeche Mode though. However the older I get the more diverse my taste becomes. There's good music in almost every genre.
I agree about the underlying philosophy. However there are certain things I like that are common in a lot of the rock and metal music, to put it simple; it's got balls. That's something I can always appreciate. And I don't mean that literarily, of course.
