    Maybe because of breakdancing and Capoeira, but I cant be motivated to do work out unless there's music in the background... I listen to this one a lot myself for doing reps to...



    Do you guys use music to be pumped up or motivated? What kind do you listen to?

    Eric Prydz "call on me", I always warmup to it just to be tacky.
    Anything with a sick electronic or pop beat (preferably "gay" I.e. GaGa, Kylie, or Madonna)

    Or, really really filthy rap songs with lots and lots of unessessary swearing and bad words icon_smile.gif

    Of course we have our own set of songs that get us up and going when we work out. One that I came across at the beginning of a "Baywatch" episode is really a good one.

    For me its all about feeling.. good feelings. And while its from the late 90's, I hadn't come across it before watching the "Baywatch" episode

    When I workout, especially when I'm doing cardio and pushing myself through my limits, I listen to some raw anger/raged metal song like the old school Slipknot.



    Oh I realized I just plugged in my RJ nickname here hahaha...

    Anyways ! When I cool down, I turn to songs with that special "feel good" feeling, like some songs from Passion Pit.

    One thing I've had on work out mixes lately is the electro house song Confusion by Block & Crown. This mix is 9 minutes long and the vocals don't start until over two minutes into the song, but the build is worth it:


    And another one with very interesting, fun vocals:

    depends on what Im doing, cardio and etc is usually anything upbeat, dance, pop, electronic etc. If Im doing weights I listen to heavy metal. My favorite is Rob Zombie or something like that!! Or Disturbed is good also.

    I need more upbeat stuff. My workout mix is pretty huge and varies as far as genres and I'm constantly working on it, but some examples:

    Born free by M.I.A and March of the Pigs by Nine Inch Nails give me that extra push during workouts.

    I have to get engrossed into the beat and the lyrics for me to have a plausible work out...



    Sadly, they don't have to have that much depth to them, just a good beat.

    That's why I like my rpm cycle class because of the music.

    For cardio/ballistic kettlebell exercises, any trance/techno type music keeps me going.

    For lifting heavy/strength training, death metal - especially Dethklok, Rammstein, Danzig, or Cannibal Corpse is the stuff. ;)
