"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I would be interested to learn what music people use when they train.

I like Roxy Music or anything by Bryan Ferry when I train - it really gets me up there. I never tire of listening to it.

The new Mudvayne album is great. I use a MP3 player and have about 50 songs. If you don't have one, they are AWESOME. I have the Creative NOMAD, and it is about the size of a pack of gum and I am able to wear it on my arm w/o it getting in the way.

I like to have a Mariachi band follow me around the gym. Sure that distracts the other patrons but they can find another training facility. It puts me into a festive mood so I forget the pain :)

Endorphens are the drug, gonna get me some, uh!

Unfortunately, I'm at the mercy of the gym where I workout. Given a choice, I'd go for 70s Motown or classic rock (other than the same 100 songs they rotate on the local station).

None. No noise of any kind, when I used to go to a gym, instead of training at home , I used to wear earplugs to keep out any distractions that might interfere with my concentration.

When I am not training I enjoy a wide variety of music , very ecclectic. I never listen to " chanting to noise " which is widely known as rap, if I can help it , it is not music as it has no harmony or melody. It is simply shouting a chant with noise in the background. Occasionally someone will throw in something stolen , "sampled" from some real music, but even that does not make it music in any sense of the word.

Craig,

Do you listen to the same Roxy Music recording cycled and recycled? I've heard that's how it's most effectively used in home gym training. In the midnight hour, oh yeah.

I'm thinking about hiring Ryan Sergent's, "Adios Amigos Mariachi Band" to be my personal trainer. I figure the band has learned a few things about weight training by following him around the gym all these years, especially the tuba player. I will call it training by committee. Ryan, you can use the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra as your music source from now on. I heard they are looking for a gig, and they are willing to travel.

I enjoy listening to the sounds of an idling and revving chain saw when I work out. I find it really gets the nervous system going. I have slow dripping water and Chinese temple block music, with occasional splashes of a 64 inch gong, sampled in over the chain saw to give a nice contrast. You can look for and maybe even find this CD in the New Age section at any Tower Records.

When i'm training hard and in the zone i couldn't tell you what music is playing in my gym.My favorite band since i was 12 years old has been The Who,when Keith Moon was on the drums.He used a whole body workout when he used to play.

The sound of a chain saw? Now that's an interesting idea.

I train in my basement so I can turn it up a loud as I want. The new Mudvayne is great. American Head Charge, Shadows Fall. Black Label Society (that's Zakk Wylde's band, he's Ozzy's guitarist). Also the old school stuff, Slayer, Anthrax, Pantera, old Metallica, the new stuff is easy listening. And thanks for reminding me about Overkill, I'll have to dig out those old cd's.

Overkill is old? If you think that, then don't skimp on the "classics" by Exodus, Testament, Metal Church, Jag Panzer, and COC.

I had no idea there were so many rivetheads on this web site.

Not a thing, And I get hacked off when someone tries to play the noise at the gym. I think they should blow their own eardrums out with a ipod until they bleed out of ears and eyes. The noise is like smoking, you can do it to yourself, just don't impose it on others.

Rivethead?

You're really bringing back some memories. All those are great bands. Sorry if I think that stuff is old, I was listening to that back in junior high. While we're at it we can't forget Nuclear Assault, Death Angel, Forced Entry, DRI, SOD. I thought COC was done after their last cd but the new one that just came out is great.

Mr. Testes,

There are certain types of music I don't care for and these are sometimes played at the gym I go to. Let me tell you one thing, though: I don't hear anything I don't want to, because when I'm locked into my workout, that's it --- everthing else fades to less than background noise.

Seriously, if you can, try dead silence and see if you don't get just one more rep than usual. Honest.

The irrtation of so called music gets to me unlike any other gym sounds, luckly I don't have to endure it often. I am "into" my workouts 98% of time. I am glad to see you are there all the time. Good Luck.

This is one of the main reasons I put equipment in my home, to get away from the music and all of the talking and other bullshit like grunting , groaning, dropping plates, screaming, poor equipment maintenance, waiting inline to "work in a set" with some guys doing 30 sets of " throw the weights up and then let them drop while holding on " , cell phones etc.

I wouldn't go back to a commercial gym to work out , unless I were out of town for a month and utterly desperate. To those of you who have no choice, you have my utmost sympathy.

Gotta agree with that!
I train at home in silence for several months now and even the noise from the road when window is opened disturbs me sometimes now.
Can't imagine to go back to the gym again.

Yeah, I have a greatest hits CD constantly on replay. I find that after a while the sound becomes a sort of chant that induces an almost trance-like state.

I enjoy a wide variety of music outside the gym such as blues, rock, folk and a wide variety of others styles. However, when I am in the gym I don't like to hear any music, I like to focus on what I am doing. We have a couple of guys in our gym who like to play loud "headbanger" music that is so loud you can't hear yourself think, much less say anything to anyone else. I could care less what music they listen to if it "floats their boat". I think they should wear headphones and keep it to themselves. Any selection of music is fine to listen to if it motivates you. Use it, but don't assume everyone else around you wants to have the wax dislodged from their ears or enjoys the same thing you listen to.
