    Hey guys,

    I was thinking about getting some more songs to listen to whilst I'm at the gym and wanted to hear from you what you all listen to in hope of pinching some ideas. I'm pretty open minded with music but mainly love Metal as well as Electronic (mainly Trance) music when I'm working out.

    It seems like some people listen to:

    1) Heavy music to help power them through their workout
    2) Stuff that keeps them a bit calmer to maintain heart rates
    3) Music they generally listen to day to day
    4) All of the above

    I'm about 80% heavy/aggressive stuff with a few songs that are a bit calmer thrown in too which is mainly trance/electronic music.

    These are some the songs I have on my Shuffle:

    Angry/Heavy:
    C.A.N.C.E.R - Architects
    The Final Hour - Molotov Solution
    This Is What I Know About Sacrifice - The Ghost Inside
    Deceiver - The Ghost Inside
    Early Grave - Architects
    Hollow - Heart of a Coward
    Wolves - Heart of a Coward
    The Purest Strain of Hate - Thy Art is Murder
    Reign of Darkness - Thy Art is Murder
    Apostle - Reign Supreme
    Custer - Slipknot
    Murderer - Impending Doom
    Choke - Counterparts
    Pure Hatred - Chimaira
    I, Dementia - Whitechapel
    Sleep With One Eye Open - Bring Me The Horizon

    Calmer:
    Introduction - Solar Fields (the theme music from Mirrors Edge 1)
    None Shall Live - Two Steps from Hell
    Freedom Fighters - Two Steps from Hell
    Modus Operandi - Airbase
    By Any Means - Andrew Bayer
    About 4 songs from the Rocket League Soundtrack
    Automagic - Televisor

    Sweet thread.

    I usually cycle between two types of music when I work out, or am about to work out. Usually heroic, thematic stuff to get me pumped up like when I take my preworkout at home, and do a few pushups to get in the zone, and then angry, heavy hitting stuff at the gym that demands you to get those last reps out. I cycle mainly between metalcore, trance and rap. I usually have some dope youtube videos running on my laptop as I get ready too. Lots of fighter jet Go-Pro compilations and whatnot.

    Pre Workout
    As I Lay Dying - Hellion (Possibly one of the best intros to anything ever)
    As I Lay Dying - Electric Eye
    Judas Priest - Hell Patrol
    Judas Priest - One Shot At Glory
    Judas Priest - Down in Flames
    Iron Maiden - Aces High (Occasionally the Arch Enemy cover too, they both kick ass)
    Sabaton - Night Witches
    Sabaton - Ghost Division
    Five Finger Death Punch - Bad Company
    Trivium - Forsake Not The Dream
    Trivium - Shogun (skip to right after the clean middle part, the entire song after that one makes me want to throw my couch out the window)

    During Workout
    BFMV - Scream Aim Fire
    BFMV - Begging For Mercy
    Hollywood Undead - Undead
    Flux Pavillion - Cracks ft. Belle Humble Flux Pavillion Remix
    The Glitch Mob - Our Demons
    The Glitch Mob - Mind of a Beast
    The Glitch Mob - Can't Kill Us
    Krewella and Nick Romero - Legacy
    Krewella - We Are One
    Krewella - This is Not the End
    Krewella - Play Hard
    Parkway Drive - Leviathan I
    Parkway Drive - Sleepwalker
    Parkway Drive - The Siren's Song
    Parkway Drive Blackout
    Motionless in White - Break the Cycle
    Miss May I - Relentless Chaos (Probably the song that gets me most stoked to lift, the whole thing is just fire.)

    This is getting pretty long by now, but the rest is just some D-12 and DMX. When I work out I don't want to be distracted by the music, I just want it there so I can latch on to a hook, and just crush whatever I'm doing. I've selected most of the songs for my list based on hooks and how they get you to want to bend the barbell in half. :)

    Fear Factory - Powershifter
    Fear Factory - Genexus
    Gojira - Backbone
    Nevermore - This Sacrament
    Meshuggah - War
    Vinnie Moore - N.N.Y
    Textures - Polars
    Pantera - Cowboys From Hell
    Animals As Leaders - CAFO
    Racer X - Superheroes
    Derek Sherinian - Alpha Burst
    Vangelis - Titles
    ISIS - In Fiction
    Monuments - I, The Destroyer
    Nile - Annihilation of the Wicked

    Plus some more but I don't remember them now. I've been using that playlist lately.

    Usually I don't like to workout to calm music, I want aggressive music mostly :metal:

    Hatebreed all the way man!

    And when you've gone through the discography a bunch of times, maybe Beneath the Remains or Arise from Sepultura. Meshuggah's Chaosphere works too.

    Listening to something that's too slow or mellow or generally isn't intense enough makes me fatigued more easily. I wish I could listen to anything from Joe Pass to Leprous though!

    Can't remember what the full play list was but I remember the first two tracks, I never used music to stretch just get the music on for the start of the lifting.

    Finnis Fatalis Spei - Bleeding Through
    Declaration - Bleeding Through

    The first one was great as a wraning to the body to get ready and as the 2nd one kicked in start lifting.

    Not really afan of any other Bleeding Through apart from this album which slays massively.

    I've been listening to Animals as leaders (self titled & joy of motion), Conquering Dystopia self titled & Jeff Loomis Zero Order Phase album.

    I prefer listening to instrumental stuff whilst training and usually I'll just stick a whole album on from start to finish.

    Man, my music is super boring compared to y'alls. For a while I used to run to Beyond Creation's "Earthborn Evolution" from start to finish; but even then I got tired of that and switched over to the new Weeknd CD and that .... is bumpin.

    For lifting, I've done everything from thrash to ambient and it all just kind of acts as background noise. I don't think I've ever really gotten into a 'zone' through music alone, normally it's if I know I'm in a crunch for time.

    Usually just put periphery or architects on shuffle. Seems to do the trick every time.

    I alternate between the spotify playlist for deathcore and hairmetal, depending on mood and weight goals i want to reach :lol:
    When neither matches, the new Spotify MixTapes worked really well for me. I just don't feel like selecting the music myself. I like to discover new bands i haven't listened to until now :yesway:

    Im big into listing to entire albums when I workout. With that being said my favorites are every Veil album minus ID, the new Emmure cause Josh Travis kicks ass, and the newest Unearth, particularly the song never cease. Let me know what you guys think?
