    what kind of music do you guys listen to when you work out? i mean, i'm sure it's obviously something with a solid uptempo beat, but anything specifically that you reach for consistently? for me:

    • Gogol Bordello, the Gypsy Punks - Underdog World Strike album in particular. these guys give metal guys a serious run for their money as far as energy is concerned!
    • Pantera, CFH and Far Beyond Driven.
    • Incubus' S.C.I.E.N.C.E. album. it's as good as it's name :)
    • George Clinton. i've got a couple collections that keep me going.

    Pantera here. Nothing gets me in the workout mood more than a good blast of Vulgar Display.

    I listen to Satch when I workout although I have listened to alot of metal and death metal too when working out. Suffocation, Morbid Angel, Obituary, Sevendust, 311, Fear Factory, DT, etc.:yesway:

    In Flames and Mnemic for me. Jogging with soundtrack to your escape freaks me out though. it has a lot of backround vocals that make me think someone is yelling to me or something...freaks me out every time.

    Oh man. It's been such a long time since I've actually gotten to pick my own workout music... I haven't worked out since I took a weight training class last year though :noplease: I have really gotta get back into it but just need to get motivated. I keep saying I'll do it Monday, but every monday I either forget or overdo it and then am too sore on tuesday to really want to continue. But anyways, in that class I always got stuck listening to whatever rap was on the radio.. You Detroit guys here probably have been unfortunatly exposed to 102.7 at some point. In all fairness though, it did actually make for decent workout music at times.

    If I can get back into a decent workout regiment, I'll probally go with some Godsmack, Pantera, and Black Label Society but I'll leave out ther acoustic stuff. As much as I may like it, I don't want to listen to something so mellow while I'm trying to get motivated.

    I think a lot of 80s metal could also make for good workout music.
