    While you guys work out, do you listen to music?

    When I lift, I don't because somehow, the music distracts me and I can't do stuff properly. But when I run I listen to music, because it relaxes me and I forget about the other stuff.

    I listen to either loud, angry music, or music that is very focusing, like something with a constant beat, and no singing. Music makes me work harder, especially when I'm alone.

    I agree, I listen to Lil' Jon, Mindless Self-Indulgence, Metallica and a variety of genres that are loud, aggressive or just have a fast pace beat. Besides that I stick with Daft Punk or whatever's on my playlists. Here's what I currently have on my "OMG it the Work-Out Mix" on my iPod:

    The New Workout Plan - Kanye West
    We Run This - Missy Elliot
    Promiscuous Girl - Nelly Furtado
    Lose My Breath - Destiny's Child
    Faggot - Mindless Self Indulgence
    Chop Suey - System of the Down
    Let The Bodies Hit The Floor - Rob ZOmbie
    What You Gon Do? - Lil Jon
    Lets Get Loud - Jennifer Lopez
    Aminal I Have Become - Three Days Grace
    I Got Life - Mercy Falls
    Down With the Sickness - Disturbed
    U + Ur Hands - P!nk
    Coming Undone - Korn
    Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It - Dem Franchize Boyz
    Human After All - Daft Punk
    Around The World - Daft Punk
    Sexual - Amber
    and more....

    When I lift I totally do. Not when I run though, I'm scared that my cleavage isn't big enough to hold my iPod while I run. I really don't want it to fall out and break.

    I've been thinking about buying those armbands Apple has for iPods for when you run.

    I just listen to whatever interests me. Like lately it's been David Guetta, Aly & AJ, and a little Good Charolette.

    I can listen to music while running outside but on a treadmill I need the tv.

    Never listen to music when lifting. I found wearing the headphones distracting...
  7. Well, I would. I never really work out, though, I don't really need to. I'm not overweight, just a slim build. Hahah. I mean, I always plan to, but I never get around to it.

    Anyway, yeah, music is what makes me want to do things, so I defintely would listen to it while working out.

    I like to listen to music when I work out, but I can't just be any music. Like others have said, it needs to be something constant because you're lifting/running at a pace. If you're listening to music with a tempo changing all the time, it's going to fuck your rhythm up.

    For me, the music is better when it's coming from a stereo. I hate when I have headphones on and my ears get all sweaty and nasty while I have them in.
  10. Gotta have it doing cardio. Gives me something to think about besides how long I've been sitting on the damn bike. I like to keep my headphones on while lifting too because I hate most of the music they play at the gym.
