    a word of advice on gym music in your headphones:

    Be aware of your surroundings.

    Most guys jack up the volume of their music to block out what the gym plays (don't blame them for that) or to get pumped up.

    one summer i was working out at my university gym and it was minimally staffed (cuz summer).

    there were only six other guys there, spread out through two floors of exercise nirvana. One such gentleman was decline benching over 400lbs without a spotter.

    he missed he last rep and the bar came right down on his neck (in a controlled manner, he didn't drop it), effectively cutting off his airway and preventing him from shouting for help.

    everyone else had headphones but me because my ear buds were destroyed by my cat. i was the only one who heard his last desperate grunt before he couldn't make any noise.

    i couldn't row the weight off of him by myself, but it bought us some time so i could shout someone down to help.

    Long story short. be sure to look around or keep your volume low enough to hear what's going on around you. Some people don't lift with spotters when they should

    Funny enough, I've just started working out lately, it's got to be fast catchy metal to get you going!
    best album so far has been Painkiller by JP, Hatebreeder by CoB a close second.

    I tried 10k with The Berzerker as a soundtrack.....my legs nearly fell off.

    One very big reason why I made myself a nice little home gym :). Plus, I hate being around others, I like to get in my own zone. IMO home gym>commercial gym.

    Hm, why instrumental? I wouldn't want instrumental music for training... Or well, maybe for running or something, but If I listen to music when I strength train, I want something where they're screaming their balls off (preferably layered screams for added intensity).

    I can't really be bothered to bring music to the gym though, so I'm forced to listen to stupid radio pop. It's alright though, since I try to focus on my training. But sometimes I wish they'd put on this:

    Prob not what the OP wants to hear but I actually stopped listening to music when I go to the gym about 18 months ago and found I concentrate and focus a lot more than I ever did with my headphones/iPod on
