"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."

Just a quick diversion away from the usual iron-speak on this forum regarding cadence, calories and reverse curls, etc.

What music gets most people going while training? Particularly for home trainers like myself?
I've found playing music I personally like can be quite counter-productive, i.e. I ended up being distracted by lyrics, etc. However, hardcore dance anthems work a treat - even though I'd never listen to it in any other scenario.

I used to listen to music when I trained, but stopped as I found that I started to associate exercise with music and found I seemed to need a bit of music in order to get a good workout. But since I stopped the music I have improved my focus greatly and can now psych myself up mentally from within rather than relying on an external source.

Play music in the background but do not rely on it for motivation, psyching yourself up, etc. As this conditions you to associate exercise with music.

I listen to lots of different music, at the moment its White Snake (Rock Band, but from the name I think most would get that) compilation.

I train in my garage and I'm too self-conscious to let neighbours hear grunts and groans, so music covers most of the noise. This lets me focus on the workout itself so actually improves my concentration. So I guess we will need to differ on this one.

You guys are letting your 80's show!
I was thinking Rick Astley was pretty motivating, or maybe Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam.....

Don't listen to music anymore while I lift. I used to work out at a different YMCA than I currently do, and when I worked out there I liked to listen to: Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Smashing Pumpkins, etc. Mostly 90's grunge stuff.

I prefer to train without my headphones on so I can hear the gym around me. The only problem is that my gym apparently only gets one radio station, the adult Top 40 station and when I train in the mornings it's all talk radio. Plus when it does has music, it's hard to get psyched up to Celine Dion. So I wear my headphones so I don't have to hear that crap.

I'm a big dance/techno guy myself. I really love to listen to trance music at the gym that has a good beat, but not really any lyrics that stand out. I can get into a good groove with the music. I really like DJs like Tiesto, Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk, or ATB.

I dont really like music during a workout, because it can get distracting to me oftentimes. the feeling, the physical anguish, and the sounds of moving the weights, the heart beating rapidly while out of breath from going through my 8-10 exerises are good enough music for me in a workout. but i'd listen to it on the way to the gym.

the drive is anywhere between 15-20 min and i found that losing my focus and in some cases my desire to train would go down. i'd listen to Metallica, Ozzy, Korn, etc and that would hype me up to keep me motivated. on the way back from the gym i'd listen to just good ol' rock to calm myself up.
