Workout Music
« on: April 08, 2013, 07:49:23 AM »
I'm sure that i'm not the only person who uses music as motivation to get me through high vigor workouts. My favorite genre to listen to when I'm working out is house, dance, and progressive house. It really helps to push me when my limbs are screaming lol.

How about you? What kind of music motivates you through workouts?

it's kind of ironic but the music I like to work out to is stuff I normally don't like to listen to like drowning pool

Actually, I can see how listening to Drowning Pool would work in a work out setting, to be honest. It's genres like Classical that I have trouble understanding people listening to when they are working out. I mean, how is that even able to touch them? It's very odd to me. But having said that, I am somewhat of a fan of Classical music in my down time. I just don't want to be working out to it. I wouldn't work out to rap music either.

With the house music, there is that solid four by four beat that kind of acts like a mantra for your physical movements, if that makes any sense.

I prefer not to exert excessive energy (at least physically). For mental exercise I enjoy classical music to get the neurons firing!

When I am working out I go with hip hop, rap, club music, dance music, or fast RnB. So for example, Drake or Ace Hood (Rap/Hip Hop), club music (David Guetta stuff or Jennifer Lopez), dance music (Havan Brown, Cascada), fast RnB (Some Mariah Carey stuff).

Music i most definitely my motivation. When I am happy, sad, energetic or etc, you will find me listening to music. If you have a true passion and sincerely live for music, you will never question yourself. You will never ask yourself how to change your mood. You are in control of your on life. Music is just your reassurance.

I agree. Sometimes in the morning, on certain mornings when I can't get up. Or don't want to, a good song will get me up and ready to go. Music can also change some of my down moods at times as well.

For work out music I tend to go with anything fast-paced, but Dubstep sometimes kind of just gets me in this repetitive zone that allows me to keep pushing almost mindlessly so I can finish the sets I need to get done, finish that extra half mile, etc.

Aggressive music. I hear it all the time but while doing workout it fits just perfectly.

I tend to favor rock, especially metal for my workouts.  I really like Tool, Helmet, Rage Against The Machine, Faith No More, One Day As A Lion, Pearl Jam, KMFDM.  Basically anything that is upbeat and motivational.  I can't see myself listening to hip hop, country or classic rock while trying to work out.  That actually cracks me up when I think about it.

The kind of music that motivates me when working out are the high energy ones with some serious beats (house, dance, techno) that never seem to end. I prefer these as I feel the beats push me to keep up and get a way better workout as such.

The same time of music you would hear at a club is the same type of music I love listening to when I'm working out. It just gets your blood pumping and gives you the feeling that you have to move.

I usually go with anything fast, usually rock/alt rock. It gets me motivated. However, I can't really listen to dubstep, I don't know why. I like to listen to it at home, but it completely kills the motivated feeling when I try.
