"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Guys,
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?

Anyway, my recommendation is:

Mr Mister: Welcome To the Real World

Yes it's 80's rock/pop, an absolute classic!

PS Can anyone recommend any Trance music?

regards,
Nick

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.

Trance & House are great! But, sometimes listening to the iron is great music. I mix it up, depends on mood.

Try "The Jimmy Swift Band"

They claim their style as rocktronica. Pretty interesting, and some of their stuff is trancy i guess.

I listen to my mp3 while training.

I like to train to music that "gets me going" which tends to be heavier stuff.

Stuff like seether, papa roach, audioslave, cold,disturbed, lost prophets, creed etc

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.

Usually I like the positive, uplifting and inspiring, but that's not what I want in the gym. There it's more like...

I rarely play any music when i train but if i do, it's gotta be some 90's metal like Metallica, Megadeth or my favorite, Overkill.

"This workout is brought to you by the Wrecking Crew"!!!

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.

Yes

Coachjeff, that sounds very much like me. :-)

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.

I there are people working out and it's the right crowd I train to Metallica. If I'm the only one at the gym, I keep the music off, shut off the fans and just listen to my own heart beating.
