Looking for some motivational workout music

I'm looking for some motivational music to put on my mp3 player when I hit the gym.

I listen to just about anything, but prefer rock & techno. Not a huge country fan (but then again, I haven't heard someone workout to country music before)

Thanx in advance...

edit: sorry mods...can someone move this to the music forum?

Eye of the Tiger.

Make sure you listen to it when you're running up some stairs, or a stair simulator.

Dire Straits "Brothers In Arms" always had the perfect beats for a workout, in my opinion.

Jadey has some good suggestions, i'm not fond of the new SOAD albums tho. I would also suggest Disturbed, Soil, Static X, Stereomud, Megadeth, and Hatebreed. Those are what I usually listen to when hitting the heavy bag.

Even when I'm unmotivated any Judas Priest cd does it for me. The beat and the lyrics always seem to get me going. Another personal fave is Extreme's cd 3 sides to every story.

I've found "Radar Love" by Golden Earring to be the ultimate "get my blood pumping" song. It doesn't make sense until you've tried it, but it just works. At least for me and the people I've talked to. I swap out every song on my jogging mix once a week, but Radar Love is there 90% of the time.
Other than that, I like Death metal, regular metal, happy hardcore and beat-heavy trance. Not too gentle on the ears, but it makes running regularly much more bearable.

Yes! I've got most of these on my work out disk.

I also have old Metallica, Judas Priest, and a newer group, Murderdolls.

How often do you work out?

I like most of the music that's listed here but try not to pick music you listen to often. I found that if I've heard the song in my car or wherever else I play it, it's less motivational to me when I'm working out.

I'm weird.

There is a thread about good sex music. Every suggestion there that isn't say Al Green would probably work.

I'll echo the Disturbed and Hatebreed and offer up Killswitch Engage. Actually if you look at the UFC: Ultimate Beatdowns 1 you can see a bunch of music to kick ass \ work out to.

Same thing here. When I hear a song that makes me want to sprint down the street and smack someone, I hold it off until I really need the motivation.

i can't do it.


personally, were i to work out in a gym (as opposed to riding a bike through a city, an activity for which motivational music seems suicide) i would go for cheesy 60s french pop--like jacques dutronc or serge gainbourg---or kahimi karie or katerine. something like that.

Totally agreed. The intense metal stuff is the best when you want to get a great workout. I'd throw some Slipknot, Sepultura, maybe some of the faster System of a Down, etc. in there for running, or just keeping up a good cardio pace.

Okay, given that you like techno, you should definitely try Prodigy's Fat of the Land... the entire album. I've used this so many times because it's really effective... energetic and electric. Actually, I think I'll go listen to it right now!

This might seem weird, but:

Santa Esmeralda - Esmeralda Suite

If you have to classify it, its something like latin/flamenco/rock/disco. Eighteen minutes long or so. Used to dance to it in the discos of the 70's, great workout. On a good stereo it will blow you away.
Quentin Tarantino used it as the background music to the sword fight scene with O-Ren towards the end of Kill Bill, Vol. I

I found that "Hurts So Good" (John Mellencamp) was very, uh, appropriate when I was lifting weights this morning.

For cardio, I usually go with electronic mixes from an itunes podcast - Podrunner. They're arranged by BPM, so I pick one that seems to match my pace for the day and just go and go. I don't like trying to match vocal songs when I'm running because I find I change my pace too much. Having an established beat really helps me keep moving.

I'm sure it comes as no surprise for anyone that knows me to find out I work out to the Naruto Original Soundtrack I and II (sometimes III). A lot of them have high BPM, plus they're interesting melds of electronic elements with traditional Japanese instrumentation. It's my ninja training music.

For instance:

When I'm at home and doing yoga, I use Rhapsody's New Age-Ambient station to pick what I listen to. Oddly, there's nothing New Age about it.

My "kick my own ass" soundtrack is the album The Fat of the Land by The Prodigy. "Smack my Bitch Up" is the lead-off track, and once you get past the misogyny, it's a GREAT track for fast cardio, and the rest of the album kicks ass too.

If I'm looking to put in a longer, less intense session, it's something talky--a podcast or audiobook.

I agree with you on this one, except the misogyny part. The band claims these lyrics are misinterpreted, that they mean "...doing anything intensely...." Kinda like what they do onstage. And "bitch" can mean many things. In this context, it could mean "a weak or passive man," as in: smack my inner bitch up, and get intense for once. It's a self-focused thing, at least in my view.

"Change my pitch up; smack my bitch up."

I know what they said, Baraka. Still, there's the words "smack my bitch" to get over. The song those words are sampled from doesn't make any "do anything intensely" excuses--it's proudly misogynist. I don't have a problem with "Smack my Bitch Up" per se, but it was controversial and I'd hate to send somebody into the gym with that on their iPod without some warning.

"Breathe" and "Funky Shit" are awesome workout tunes as well.
