MP3 Players in the Gym

Posted by Hooded_Claw on Sat 30 Apr 2011 to brawn_and_bunnies

How important is your MP3 player or phone whilst you are working out? Also, what kind of music do have playing on it? mine is so important to me and I'd would not have got to the stages I'm at without it. Love my Ipod. Is that sad? :-)

Essential for me on all my big lifts! Personal best on my bench today listening to pantera! :)

I need to get better workout music, so curious to see what others work out to?

Its not begging....Its saying please very politely :-p Its not bratty...its colourful :-D

For heavy lifts I always listen to mettalica, pantera, Marilyn Manson, rage against the machine, prodigy and the like...

For cardio it's drum and bass, trance and anything with a heavy repetitive beat :)

I can live without audio when lifting but cardio is too boring to contemplate without tunes.

At the moment I'm listening to Robert Ullrey's couch to 5k podcasts which is working fine. I've also just joined Nike+ to log my runs and daily walks.

Music is crucial for my card - love underworld, prodigy, kings of Leon , maximo park etc - anything lively but especially selected underworld and prodigy stuff for the elliptical stepper - great for keeping the revs up ! For weights I guess I go a little slower - I like something with a hefty base to help with the power ! Also have a fab app on the I phone where I can track all food and exercises - it's brilliant !! It's call My Fitness Pal and you should give it a try if you don't already have one .

I couldn't train without my iphone & Spotify app. I've got a 4 hour playlist including warm up and cool down tracks. It builds up to frantic hard dance for cardio and heavier stuff for strength.

I usually prefer to train in silence so I can focus without any distractions.

Gyms always have music though so if I have to have music during training
