Training Music

Postby wroth » Fri May 18, 2007 8:54 pm

Was thinking about this today while I was getting ready for my workout. I normally use my iPod to listen to music, but when I'm at home, I just don't like to do that. I use a cd player so I started compiling CDs of music. Just figured it might be a fun idea to share lists of songs for people to check out and listen to during workouts. Also help people find new bands/genres they wouldn't listen to normally.

Anyways, my CD I made up tonight:

*Anberlin - Godspeed
*Anberlin - There Is No Mathematics to Love and Loss
*Anberlin - Reclusion'
*Anberlin - Paperthin Hymn
Crystal Method - Name of the Game (edited)
Crystal Method - Born Too Slow
*Needtobreathe - Knew It All
*tobyMac - Ignition
*tobyMac - The Slam (as heard in many commercials)
*Tyler Bates - Fever Dream (metal riff in 300 as the Spartans meet the barbarians - think of the scene when they take out the rhino)
*The Classic Crime - The Fight
*Decyfer Down - Fight Like This
Sevendust - Enemy
Sevendust - Praise
Trapt - Headstrong
*Dead Poetic - Cannibal vs Cunning
*Dead Poetic - Narcotic
Dope - Take Your Best Shot

Covers a decent range of stuff, cause somethings get me pumped because of what they're associated with (ie - Fever Dream) or just what mood I'm in. Anything with an * means it's something that you don't need to worry about profanity. Stuff without it just means I can't remember.

I find that music is of utmost importance during a workout. "Back in the day" I thought that - along with wearing worn-out workout gear - I HAD to listen to HEAVY stuff for it to count as a workout. I would put on the Pantera (Vulgar Display of Power), Sepeltura, Prong, Megadeth... I realized one day that all I could focus on was the music! I wanted to drop everything and start thrashing around and screaming the lyrics. I guess I'm ADD.

One day I was hiking and listening to a meditation tape (yes a cassette - remember those?) and found myself pushing hard with a more focused attitude. So, I started to listen to this style whenever I workout! Amazing results! Now I look for meditation, ambient, drone stuff for my workout.

Some favs:
Quiet Heart/Spirit Wind (Native American and Asian flute)
Philip Glass
Ravi Shankar - Chants of India
Shpongle
Kruder/Dorfmeister
J.S. Bach

I think I read a study showing that music can really improve the output of a workout. I will see if I can find it.

During Day 3 (when I was doing level 1, I was fast enough), I used two songs:
-- Lit - Over my head (pull-ups/bodyrows)
-- Robert Randolph & The Family Band - Ain't Nothing Wrong With That (push-ups and squats)

I haven't settled on other tracks, though some Christina Aguilera (Dirty album) has worked for day 1 stuff.
On day 2 I like mello stuff in my 'rest periods'.

Yeah of course, Pandora is the best of the best. I've bought 2 cd's so far from its recommendation engine.

Well, I used to use pandora until they had to close for non-u.s. residents. I've moved to finetune.com, which is not quite the same, but near enough.
