What music do you exercise to?

Each to their own, but I need some ideas.

I go to the gym quite a bit, but desperately need some new music to keep me going.

The kind of music I am into is things like Prodigy (esp. ‘Gilted Generation’ = an all round winner of an album) and certain tracks by Eat Static (‘Implant’ has a few great tracks) - so, can anyone recommend any other albums/tracks with a similar amount of energy/drive/hypnotic quality?

Any ideas welcomed.

Exercise???

AC/DC, or Parliament.
And on the wekend, a little bit o’both… :rainbow:

Faster Harder Scooter by Scooter.

Great music for indoor cycling class etc.

I’ve made mix CDs for this purpose before…I love running, and it really does wonders for me.

Best Unmixed = Tori Amos, From The Choirgirl Hotel (especially the song Raspberry Swirl–I’ve run my fastest mile with that one on repeat)
Any Chris Isaak album–he’s so jaunty and packed with energy, and his albums tend to be short and punchy.
The new Juanes album is very pleasant for jogging, though the more varying pace might not be the best.

I read about the effects of music here and elsewhere:

From another site:
Faster tempo and simpler rhythmic structures were associated with increased baseline, ventilation, blood pressure, and heart rate and decreased midcerebral artery flow velocity and baroreflex compared with baseline.

Have you tried making a workout CD mix? :laughing:

Im serious here… Have you ever listened to Bhangra? Its got a wicked beat that keeps that cardio workout going a treat. I’d have to say “Punjabi MC” is great to exercise to. When they play “Beware of the boys” (feat JayZ) I always want to push myself a bit further.

And the lyrics can be hard to fathom out, so it gives yer brain a good workout too.

Rammstein

Esstential Mix - Pete Tong & Carl Cox Live @ The Void

Motivates me to look and feel my best.

In my mind I don’t work out for the kill. I work out for the passion it brings me. The kill comes with the confidence and passion a fitness lifestyle brings me. So fuck off with the hate music at the time of training because soon enough the flood gates of the real world will open and I’ll drown whomever is in my path.

nononono I’m not angry. Heheheheehe…
