    I love to workout with some music blasting in the background. It gives me inspiration and breaks the monotony. For the heavy weight lifting I love hiphop tracks with thumping beats, but other music can be inspirational as well. For example, when doing pull-ups, Moby's lift me up can't be beaten. ;)

    What kind of music do you like to play in the background, maybe we could create a top 20 of top workout tracks?

    50 cent: In da Club is a very obvious choice, but some other tracks by him can be inspirational as well (although I couldn't recommend Candy shop to people trying to loose weight).

    On the subject of hiphop, I'm currently watching Thug Workout: Fitness from the Streets. They use playground material to workout, some of them make 50 cent look skinny. AWESOME bodyweight controll, really amazing.

    The Acacia Strain - 3750
    Dead to Fall - Everything I Touch Falls To Pieces
    Lamb of God - New American Gospel
    On Broken Wings - Some Of Us Will Never See The World

    For anyone interested in heavy stuff, I can list much more. To me, breakdowns and intense vocals are essential to lifting. When I'm in there without my iPod and they've got Kelly Clarkson or something playing I just have to look at them like they're stupid. :p

    I listen to a lot of Black Eyed Peas. They have a great beat to work out to. Also, I listen to Eminem, Will Smith, stuff like that, as well as Red Hot Chili Peppers. Nothing like the Peppers to get your blood pumping! :D

    I know some of you are gonna laugh at that, but here are my choices:

    - Running I listen to anything from Bach to Prokofiev

    - Lifting I use to listen to Jean Michel Jarre.

    Take that. :D

    AC DC Highway to hell or any other AC DC CD.

    Nothing like a little heavy metal to go along with lifting heavy metal...

    What you need is a bit of faithless- weapons of mass destruction

    queens of the stoneage-little sister.
    or any kottonmouth kings songs

    that helps me get those extra reps

    I've been hitting it with a little bit of everything...

    Chevelle...Godsmack...Last Second Panic...Velvet Revolver...Breaking Benjamin...

    Although it's long overdue...I'll have to mix it up this afternoon...maybe some Flaw...Disturbed...Finger Eleven...all the good ole' bands that pumped me up before every high school softball game...

    The gym at my old college had an awesome cd rotation that they would play...little known bands...very hardcore stuff...I thought many of times about taking the cd's to copy them...not bad for a Bible Thumping community...lets just say that I never had to bring my own stuff to listen to...they never played this mainstream pop crap that people call music these days...

    Hell yeah!

    I have been listening to Rise Against (RPM or SSotCC) or the newest Killswitch Engage album a lot recently when I lift.

    hmmm... i actually removed that Cypress Hill song from my running play list.
    it would always lower my mood slightly for some reason.

    I have the original "workout plan" (the one from the cd). never heard the remix.
    i'd check it out, but i'm too lazy to download music.

    I loaded up a new playlist just last night. Mostly Crystal Method, some Front 242, Lords of Acid, and for old times sake, a bit of Nitzer Ebb.

    I don't see how anyone could work out to hip-hop. Of course, that probably has more to do with my extreme dislike for hip-hop than the music itself :)

    What do you mean you dislike hip-hop but not the music? Are you saying you just hate it because it's hip-hop, even if it was good? I don't know if that's what you're saying...I hope I misunderstood it.

    I don't listen to hip-hop either, but I don't hate it arbitrarily. When I lift I listen to all different rock/metal music...I find loud and fast stuff helps me with the heavy weights..

    Err..sorry, no, that's now what I mean. I was just saying that I think hip-hop would be hard to work out to, but I think that is because I don't like hip-hop, not because it's not good work-out music. That make more sense?

    I don't have anything personal against hip-hop, I just care for it.

    Mötley Crüe is absolutely best workout-music! Testosterone and balls all the way! Also, Manowar.

    When jogging, I prefer trance :) Steady beat, peaceful atmosphere, dreamlike melodies, maybe even psychedelic sounds (not any hc- or dance-stuff for me). Also, guitar-focused instrumental music works wonders (Like Liquid Tension Experiment)!
