What’s your favourite music at the gym?

Options
What’s blasting in your earbuds?
What songs/artists get you in the zone?
Recently, I like AC/DC to get pumped, and The Killers to stay consistent and upbeat, and RHCP just to have some fun

Also accepting song recommendations!

    For weight lifting it's heavy metal (used to listen to Judas Priest and like Five Finger Death Punch's Lift Me Up when I'm lagging though the words are kinda goofy) though I went old school and was listening to Whitesnake's In The Still of The Night the other day and ended up listening to hair bands from the 80s. Cardio is symphony rock (mostly my favorite Nightwish songs). Dancing and strength exercises like sit-ups and push-ups is disco and 80s funk (Prince, BeeGees, Rick James). AC/DC has some good songs for getting pumped! That's why I like the faster music for weights so I can "attack" them.

    Iron Maiden helps with Deadlifts

    Ed Sheeran gets me through the monotony of interset resting 😎

    Nothing. I don't want to be disturbed by music, be it my own or general music in the room as I want to focus on the exercises I'm doing.

    wow idk how you do it. I personally need some kind of audio to drown out the noise of the gym and to keep my inner voice from speaking negatively

    I'm a super weirdo, but I love celtic music and movie and tv scores like "Game of Thrones". One of my favorites is "Turtle" off the Cinderella Man score. Something about that song makes me want to run for miles.

    I know - SUPER nerdy!

    But when I'm lifting weights I'm always listening to a Podcast like "My Favorite Murder" or "This American Life".

    House music when I'm doing cardio and Gangster rap or any rap when I'm lifting.
