  • Weird Music While Lifting

    I've been listening to classical piano and violin music throughout my college career while I study. About 2 months ago, I was at the gym and turned my music on and the classical music was still playing. It was a heavy squat day and I decided to just roll with the classical stuff. I found that it helped to calm me. Almost center me if you like. Rather than getting all wired and psyched, I found that sometimes I am better off to just get into a zen-like state before doing a heavy lift. I also found that it doesn't matter what I listen to because once the bar is in my hands/on my back, everything else is just static noise around me.

    So does anyone else listen to some weird music while lifting?

    The average silverback gorilla in the wild is between 5'7 and 5'11, and weighs between 298 and 397 pounds (according to wikipedia). Why not shoot for that?

      Fun anecdote:
      In one of my old gyms, they used to play satellite radio over the speakers. One day they had it on a classic rock station, where they were playing things that were OK for working out, like Steppenwolf, Boston, and whatnot.

      I was halfway through a set of DB bench presses when all of a sudden Desperado by The Eagles came on. The sheer absurdity of listening to that while lifting made me start laughing so hard, I lost control of one of the DBs and it fell right towards my face. I ended up doing a Matrix-like dodge and moved my head out of the way.

        I have been listening to a lot of Pagode music lately, it is a subgenre of Samba. My girlfriend in Brazilian, and I guess I try to learn as much as I can about her native Culture. It is vert fast upbeat tempo music, which make me feel energized and positive about my surroundings. This puts me in a good frame of mind to crush my set.

          Recently switched from hair band stuff to "chill" on xm. It's the dance music but not too electronic. Digging the change. Haven't decided if I'll keep it or not though.

            I've had some great workouts to Jason Mraz, as well as Spanish guitar music, and atmospheric yoga type stuff. I focus better with more centering music/don't over-stimulate myself pre-set getting amped.

              I sometimes like to listen to Sigur Ros while lifting heavy; I just Zen the weight up.
              Post-Metallica aggro stuff sounds like an injury to me.

                      I get really into my Skrillex radio station in the gym, but don't really listen to that kind of music anywhere else. It seems to put me in a state of really high, but steady energy, unlike a lot of rock which is simply background noise until a riff kicks in and it's like a quick kick to the ass.

                            I liked Skrillex better when he was just Sonny Moore and was the lead singer for From First to Last.
