Hello all! I was in the gym this morning and I just realized that the music I listen to always effect the type of workout I do. I was just curious to know what are you all's favorite workout music. Sometimes I have to restrain myself because I know I will look silly bouncing around on the elliptical lol.

This morning I found my Janet Jackson Design of a Decade 1986-1996 album and I had a blast at the gym lol.

I have wide variety of music. My super work out song is Mr. Brightside by The Killers, or Let It Rock by Kevin Rudolph. I love putting old albums I haven't listened to in forever on my ipod and listening to them all the way through - very fun :)

Haha, I know exactly what you are talking about. It's hard not to move to a good beat when you are working out. I'm happy I'm not at a gym on my elliptical LOL..... I think I'd end up on you tube. It would be very hard not move more while having some good tunes!

Anything with a good beat that makes me want to move. I'm not ashamed to admit that I've used Psy's Gangnum Style recently LOL (Okay, maybe a little???? :p ) But I have a pretty eclectic musical preference.... My playlist are always completely random, going from the Beatles to Korn at any given moment. :dizzy: Eh, keeps things interesting I guess.

Hahahaha Now I get down on my treadmill at home! One time I almost fell because I was dancing while walking lol. I agree that Katy Perry hits are pretty good too and LMFAO sadly lol.

Kinda weird, but I really like listening to German Death Metal when I work out, it's very angry, but I don't understand it, so I can just pretend they're screaming about whatever I'm mad about. It really gets the adrenaline going lol.

I like death metal and really repetitive electronic music for lifting and dancehall/hip-hop/reggaeton for cardio.

03-19-2013, 01:26 PM
I've been listing to a lot of Korean and Japanese pop music while I work out, actually. Mostly Kara, SNSD and Koda Kumi. Also Gangnam Style, of course. I've also got some Daft Punk, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Pussycat Dolls, LMFAO and Ke$ha (I know, I know. I'm properly ashamed).

Still, my favorite workout song is Abracadabra by Brown Eyed Girls. I can just put that on repeat and go for aaaages!

If anybody has the Pandora app on their phone "workout radio" is a really good one. There are a lot of remixes on that one, always upbeat, etc.

If you have the "8 tracks" app - you can pick what type of "mood" your in and it will set the music to that. I believe their is a setting for "gym mood" and I happen to like that too.

The Songza app also has some pretty decent workout mixes that I enjoy :)

03-19-2013, 03:24 PM
If I'm running or doing any cardio I like electronica dance stuff, I try to download compilations of it so it's literally hours of it. I love Jaques Lu Cont remixes, Scream and Shout by Wil. I.am/Britney, Madonna's Confessions on a Dance Floor is awesome. For my "dark" days I love remixes of metal songs or Depeche Mode electronic remixes.

For lifting I like Lil' Wayne or Die Antwoord, even AC/DC or Metallica.

This is all great ladies!! I'm trying to build a massive pump-up pre-match rugby play list.

So far...

Low - Flo-rida - (I have to get into a really low, low, low squat for the scrum)
Pump it - Black eyed peas
Jump Around - House of Pain
Try - Pink (...just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die, you gotta get up and try, try, try - perfect as the equivalent of a football touchdown in rugby is called a try)
Gimme Back My Bullets - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Lose Yourself - Eminem

Some of these songs aren't so conducive for workout though...but more about working up my aggression and determination. I've tried hunting online for pre-rugby playlists, but a lot of them are men's and metal. Metal, I'm sorry to say, gives me a headache. Literally. My heads start thronging and not in a good way.

I have started using Irish music to help me with my running speed workouts. Gaelic Storm and the Clancy Brothers for now. Plus, the fiddle and drums make me feel like and airy, unlike when I used use Eminem and stuff.

03-20-2013, 12:14 PM
Awesome idea! I will give that a try - some of the uptempo jigs and reels are really fast. And I used to really be into Irish music, so have a good collection.

If you are digging the Irish jigs, you should check out the dreadnoughts, a bit more punk, and polka-e but sometimes those sea shanty's can get you moving :)

One of my favs at the moment is My Body by Young the Giant.

My body tells me no, but I won't quit
Cause I want more, cause I want more
My body tells me no, but I won't quit
Cause I want more, cause I want more

I'm also loving a lot of Imagine Dragons - On Top of the World, It's Time, Demons, Radioactive.

Heavy Cross - Gossip
Break These Chains - Clare Maguire
Shake It Out - Florence and the Machine

Plus lots more. I love music. :)
