Best Workout Song

    I thought this was a good topic to revive!

    On the treadmill I tend to listen to a mixture of different folk metal bands (Finntroll, Turisas) and AC/DC, Slayer, Iron Maiden- quite old school metal, and not what I typically listen to throughout the day. When I row I tend to go for the more chilled music, longer songs- Primorial, Opeth, Tool etc.

    I just put my iPod on shuffle and feed off whatever plays when on the treadmill or elliptical. I won't bring it into class though because I'd be the one to smash it

    !!!!! Lamb of God the whole wrath album.... Had me at full energy in the gym today. I felt like running circles around everyone. Until I got to the stair climber. If that machine were a person it would be knocked the *kitten* out. Evil evil thing.

    Lately I've had a speed metal revival for workout music. The new Enforcer album kicked my *kitten* so hard I had to dig up some more speed to throw in the mix.

    "Run For Your Life" - Enforcer

    You can fit that into a relevant metaphor. Really any speed metal works for me. Exciter, Helstar, Running Wild, etc.

    Recently I've been playing the 'Industrial Cardio' playlist on Google Play Music. Its got all the more well-known choices like NIN, KMFDM, Ministry, etc. but also plenty of obscure tracks. Its also long enough to not constantly be repeating. Highly recommend.

    Rammstein, Static X, Lords of Acid, Cradle of Filth, Pantera, Otep, Kittie, Mindless Self Indulgence, Torso F***, Slipknot.... Well, I change up a lot. I love music and it's whatever is moving my mind. That pretty much ensures that my body will follow.
