Someone recommend some good music to listen to in the gym?
I listened to Bob Dylan today and it didn't quite work.
i rarely ever go to the gym but when i do, i listen to new order.
Back in the day, before I became this amorphous blob I used to find Big Black (especially Kerosene) worked well on the treadmill. It filled me with the rage and hate that I needed to keep pushing myself. Also the drum machine gives you the kind of metronomic rhythm you need to keep a pace.
For weights I also like something with a bit of bite and aggression to get the testosterone going: Black Flag or something.
i'm physically incapable of lifting weights.
but I think I'll just listen to the sound of grown men grunting. :(
That'll give you adrenaline.
Or Blood Red Shoes or QOTSA, something like that ^^
normally after much vodka.
Daft Punk is quite good for running as it's nice and upbeat but you do tend to run in a funny way as if you're trying to dance.
I always put on Underground Resistance on the rare occasion I do exercise. Something like Electronic Warfare.
i used to just focus my mind on the steady pulse of noise in fuck buttons. i had to turn it off a couple of times because i just got way too into it, i could feel my heart bit a too hard and in time.
works a treat.
it makes me feel like im in some sort of 80s educational video. specifically someone great.
tends to get me sweaty.
Modest Mouse also springs to mind.
or Hip Hop.
Worked on the treadmill today!
Hardcore / punk
for cardio anyway. Gives the best beats.
SPIRIT IN BLACK
