    It sounds kind of funny to say this. But, the last thing i do before sleeping. Is make my workout playlist... and i think VERY carefully about what i wanticon_lol.gif cause my mood changes from day to day.

    Some days i'll want to listen to intense death metal. The next maybe some smooth jazz or blues... then some Japanese Koto instrumentals. My mood of music changes day to day of what i need in a playlist.

    Today i was listening to some heavy progressive metal. I was in the middle of a very intense workout! sweating, grunting, and looking like a madman. I froze right in the middle of it... cause a song that i decided i didn't want to listen to came up. And i froze right there and had to find a better song or i couldn't continue icon_lol.gif which got a laugh from a couple people icon_redface.gif

    How far in advance do you make your playlist? can one bad song throw off the vibe>?

    I make a new one like every 3 months or so. This is my latest one. Judge me you dawgs.

    But really, I have about 3 main ones: one full of pop, one full of ghetto R&B/hip hop, and another full of fast trance music.

    No judgements here! whatever keeps you pumpin and gunnin.

    I have a few ''main ones'' but in reality usually make a new one each day. My itunes playlist selection is huge at this point...

    I take it more seriously than almost anything else in life icon_eek.gif

    Some things are important. It's called priorities.

    I cant' workout without it at this point. The music is motivating. Hip-hop, pop, and rock. The right combo leads to a great pump

    Sometimes I'll find myself singing to the music on my playlist icon_redface.gif a little embarrassing but music is super important for me

    Super important. Studies have shown that listening music can affect your heart rate quite a bit. I like starting with r&b, to faster pop, to anything electronic and fast paced

    No, I have a fast forward button. I focus on actually working out.

    Do you mean to say you have only one?

    I have two cardio ones and two for weights.

    Hmm. I don't have a music playlist for working out. (Though now I am tempted to make one!)

    I usually just pray to God that the TVs in the gym are working, and that someone switched the channel to Bravo during a Real Housewives marathon.

    Listening to music non-stop for 30 minutes usually gives me a bad nausea, so I workout without music, if something is playing in the gym, thats ok.

    I take my playlist seriously in the sense that every song i choose motivates me in a way that benefits me.

    1. it's not my time- 3 doors down (gives me that extra push)

    2.right here right now- fat boy slim (competitive mindset)

    3. What i've done-linkin park (reaching that next level)


    you get my point lol.

    I focus on lifting the heaviest weight possible and I need 100% concentration. If I'm fumbling with my music or trying to make sure that my earbuds are in place I could not work out with the intensity I am accustomed to.


    Same here--I thought it'd help me, but it only did when I was doing cardio. I seem to lose my balance more when I have earbuds in anyway, so I just focus more on breathing and lifting.

    Not at all. I usually watch junk TV. 'Homes under the Hammer' or Judge Judy for cardio and 'Murder She Wrote' for weights.

    The playlist is definitely the most important part of my workout. Must be very high energy electro house/dubstep blasting at unhealthy levels. The build ups get me wicked tensed and excited, then when the beat drops I basically black out and focus on nothing but the music and the lift/run.


    I'm pretty proud of this one, FUCKING RUN:

    Great idea. I've enjoyed a lot of those.

    But for now I have a couple pandora stations that repeat enough to essentially have a playlist. Definitely gives me the boost when I need it

    This says it for me as well, exactly. (I was beginning to think I was the only guy in the gym without earbuds). Nothing against some music, but I am usually just concentrating and counting, thinking of how much weight I'm adding in the next set, counting reps, etc.

    I do the same song wise. I like a few set songs instrumentals from classical to instrumental dance. But a lot of music with words isn't appropriate for me in the setting. I like to put in positive things. That stuff just blocks me up:p
