I just wanted to see what everyone likes to listen to/get motivated by when they work out. I just recently got a treadmill and have it in our office so I can jam songs out of the computer to keep me pumped and energized.....wanted to put a 20-30 minute mix of great get up and go songs.....
sooooo.....Any suggestions? My goal is 5 more lbs by my birthday at the end of the month!
There was another thread on this a few days ago & I was not surprised to see how many people had Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" on their iPods & MP3s. I've found that to be infectious. Some of its power is wearing off, now, but I still recommend it for moving to.
Here's a few. I like fast tunes for cardio; can't listen to music when I'm lifting weights, it throws my counting off
Bootylicious - Destiny's Child
Circus - Britney Spears
Crazy in Love - Beyonce
Hey Ya - Outkast
Poker Face - Lady Gaga
Show Me the Way - Peter Frampton
Single Ladies - Beyonce
What You Waiting For? - Gwen Stefani
When I Grow Up - kittycat Dolls
Womanizer - Britney Spears
Pon de Replay - Rihanna
Jump, Hung Up, Sorry, Ray of Light - Madonna
Reach up for the Sunlight - Duran Duran
Vertigo - U2
Breathless - The Corrs
Gimme Some Lovin - Spencer Davis Band
Boys of Summer - The Eagles
Can't Get You Out of my Head - Kylie Minogue
Still the One - Orleans
ETA: There are quite a few threads on workout music with great suggestions; do a search and you'll come up with lots.
I have never, ever, not even one time regretted not eating something. Never. Not once. Turns out telling yourself no feels marvelous. No deprivation passing up on *those foods*. The deprivation is EATING them and remaining overweight. You've got to raise your standards; requiring more from yourself. Challenge yourself. Push yourself. Work past the discomfort. Every time you do it, it gets easier and easier - Rockinrobin
Some of my favorites are:
Black Cat-Janet Jackson
Rythem Nation-Janet Jackson
I love Rock n Roll-Joan Jet
Def Leppard-Vault CD
American Woman-Lenny Kravitz
I find my favourites to be:
God is a DJ (astral projection mix)
Who the F*** is Alice (Wonderland mix)
HappyFeet OST has some groovy songs
Ian van Dahl
Guns and Roses
Old school Metallica
Musicals- War of the Worlds, PotO, Jesus Christ Superstar
Rolling Stones Top 500 (a fantastic collection of classic rock)
And lots of classic rock (Lynard Skynard, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, etc etc)
I'm not into cookie-cutter music (a la Eminem, Kid Rock and Britney Spears)- the beats drive me up the wall.
Footloose! Awesome! I as well dont really get into the cookie cutter music Mollz.....the other day I put a songlist of fast songs up to see what motivated me, and Led Zepplin did the trick, also ACDC's Its a Long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll!!!
And also me being a big fan of WVU marching band, I have a lot of their cadences and such downloaded, and that REALLY get me kickin!
There are a lot of songs on here I didnt think of, thanks for sharing everyone!
One of my favorites is I Will Survive by Cake...I usually put it in the middle of my workout...when I feel like I won't survive!! I also like My Humps by the Black Eyed Peas and I Kissed A Girl and Hot N Cold by Katy Perry...good beats! And just to show that I do have a weird selection, I warm up (every time) to Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard by Paul Simon! Something about the whistling really gets me in the mood to work out!
