No music when I work out. cepten when the gym turns it up loud enough to be heard.

haha i was meaning to start a thread like this for a while but just didn't.

I always listen to music when I'm working out;
Propagandhi/Strike Anywhere/Rentokill are my favs...sometime rise against and older thrice stuff. Fast and turn it up loud.

I find it helps me get psyched up for heavier weights.

Tried working out without music before, wasn't right for me

If I was listening to that at the gym,
I wouldn't be pumping much iron,
but I sure would be doing alot of dancing.

I listen to Propagandhi too and lots of Bif Naked. My fave vegans!!

I also enjoy several local bands such as Scatterheart, Bike, Irreverants, and whatever else I have on my ipod these days.

You sir, have excellent taste in music! Now throw in some Judge, Death Threat, Ten Yard fight and Champion and I'll start breaking faces :wink:

Back at you. Ten yard fight is awesome workout music! Or just sports in general. Death Threat is waaaay awesome! Did you see them this summer too? Judge? How could I not mention them. A SLAVE TO SEX AND YOU TELL ME YOU'RE PURE!

Everything I listen to is done on the way to train - once I'm there, I'm at the mercy of whatever XM station they have it turned to as I just can't train with headphones (and earbuds don't work in my gigantic ears :D )

My latest favorite that gets played twice on the way there, just enough time to cover the trip -



Puts me in a fine pre-lifting trance to get my focus ready. :D

Usually, when I train I can just ignore whatever's on, except for those stupid freakin' people on phones at the gym that get me chapped when I have to listen to their inane chatter about where they're going to go drinking afterward.

Though, last week I had a fine time when someone left the station on the easy listening channel and I nearly lost it when I had to listen to Dan Fogelberg's "Leader of the Band". While I may have come to the realization after all these years that it was an ode to his father, it nearly made what little testosterone I had left go flying right out the window! :D

I love Muzion :)



When I'm doing long bouts of cardio, I bump hip hop, danceable stuff, all the better if it's not english. When I play with weights, I like to listen to hardcore. I don't really like to workout without music.
