What artists, albums, or individual songs do you listen to while you exercise? Do you have a workout playlist?

Lifting: Rock or something intense
Running: Hiphop or Tech just needs to seem energetic

Strangely enough I'm trying to ween myself off of listening to music while lifting.

Anything with a bit of energy to it works, Anything slow is likely not a smart idea.

One of the managers at my gym always plays this adult contemporary music when he's there, like Mazzy Star. Another manager, his father, mostly plays old showtoons. They're both terrible choices.

Trance just might be the best genre for running methinks.

Trance or drum & bass. Liquid or jungle I think is best.

I prefer Trance because I think it puts you in the perfect mood for the constant repetition of running and the somewhat...flowing motion of jogging where every step feels a tiny bit like weightlessness.

Er, I usually just pick albums or anything in a range*: Toro Y Moi, Battles (pre Gloss Drop), Radiohead In Rainbows,The Wombats, Foals, Tool, Beastwars, Kyuss, At the Drive In, The Mars Volta, Bonaparte, Funkadelic, LCD Soundsystem, The Shocking and Stunning.

*I found playlists and curating each song boring.

when I'm exercising, I usually have stuff I can lip sync to. Probably some Beyonce in there usually.

IDK I just cant do instrumentals, no matter how upbeat they are.

Screaming post-hardcore/emocore and occasionally intense post-rock. When I'm working out, I'm not trying to get club hyped. I'm getting angry.

-Moving Mountains
-Dance Gavin Dance
-Emarosa
-My Chemical Romance
-He is Legend
-Anberlin
-Linkin Park

Works for me.

I don't care for music when I workout. That's my thinking time.

I love my trance too , it lifts my mood I've followed the genre for many years now came across a wide selection of amazing producers.
