Workout Music

I've just gotten started on working out more, and I'm wondering what songs are your favorites when working out. I'll listen to almost anything, so send some songs my way please!

    LOL Bryan Adams' 18 till I die makes my heart rate spike.. I love the first riff.
    Rammstein is nice for high intensity workouts.
    Also, Pendulum and Dedmau5 are nice for continuous runs :)
  • Depending on what type you like. I have quite a variety on my Ipod. Depending on the day, but some Shinedown songs, or Keri Hilson's newest one. Pretty Girl Rock gets me going!

    pendulum - witchcraft
  • Being a Christian, and a walker, I love the Kim Alexis workouts. She arranges the gospel music in a warm up, get more intensive and cool down order. Plus she throws in some Bible verses, and encouragement along the way. I love praising God while walking!

    I LOVE electronica - it's most of what I have on my Ipod playlist for running. There are two great exercise-oriented FREE podcasts on Itunes, Motiontraxx and Podrunner. I highly recommend those. I also like Earslap podcast, which isn't designed specifically for exercise but will definitely get you pumpin' - has awesome electronica/dance/drum and bass mixes - each week a new DJ - one great mix is by the Chemical Brothers.

    haha this. I have to work out to angrier music to get my adrenaline working so I workout harder and longer. Typically bands like American Head Charge ("Loyalty"), Norma Jean ("Athiest Deathbed"), Chevelle, Dry Kill Logic, etc.

    I usually have a mix of fast paced rock (Shinedown, Chevelle) with some pop or hip-hop (Lady Gaga, Nicki, Kesha, whatever) and lately I've added some Dubstep mixes (Datsik - Calypso and Knife Party - Bonfire). It kinda makes you feel like a bada** and that's pretty motivational.

    being older than most I prefer to look back to when music was actually good(although I love Train). I go with Queen, Boston , Journey, reo, Kansas, Pink Floyd, etc...lots of upbeat stuff there!!:tongue:
