Strength exercise, not cardio, preferably. My short go-to list is being exhausted. Need new stuff!

Chiggedy Chuck and I talked about it last week here: http://metalstorm.net/pub/article.php?article_id=1283

Thanks in advance.

I have used Bolt Thrower for running, but I would suspect it would be good for lifting weights too.

I do mostly cardio - was training for/competed in the Phoenix, Az Spartan Race last weekend.

my workout mix was basically a spotify collection various metal, punk, new wave, and ska(punk) tunes selected primarily to be shorter bursts of energy. before a song lingers on too long suddenly another kicks off and brings another jolt of energy with it.

5 hours/123 tracks at the moment.

complicated by artists not listed on spotify, leaves some holes, and for whatever reason, one of my favorite motivational songs IS on spotify, yet my remote devices don't seem to be able to play Rollins Band "Get Some Go Again".

Some ...

Anthrax - Got The Time
Bad Brains - Sailin' On
Bad Religion - Henchman
Cathedral - Hopkins, Witchfinder General (the longest song on the list)
Clutch - Pure Rock Fury
Converge - Dark Horse
Darkthrone - Circle The Wagons
Descendents - Coffee Mug (34 seconds, probably the shortest)
Helmet - In The Meantime (y'all mentioned Helmet, but i think omitted Strap It On when talking about albums 1 and 2. that proceeded In The Meantime)
High On Fire - Rumours Of Fire
Holy Terror - Debt Of Pain
Misfits - All Hell Breaks Loose
Mustard Plug - We're Gonna Take On The World
Operation Ivy - Sound System
Slapshot - Relight The Fire
Tenacious D - To Be The Best (the perfect soundtrack to a sports training montage)
Torche - Walk It Off
Twisted Sister - We're Not Gonna Take It


But hte two tracks that really get me going and fire me up when i'm sucking wind are both from the same band... Suicidal Tendencies. Can't Bring Me Down and The Feeling's Back never fail to help me find another
gear.



And as for the aforementioned Bolt Thrower... that there is some sexin' music.

Two of the best songs period, but for working out, really anything by Pantera, Black Flag, and Suicidal of course, I could work out to pretty much any kind of metal really.

For working out, I find Disturbed to be quite suiting: especially songs like The Animal and The Night. Though I could probably work out to anything metal, that has some "power and aggressiveness" to it.

Something immediate, and both catchy and punchy. Recent favourites have been Killswitch Engage, Protest The Hero, Sylosis, Trivium - metalcore in general seems to fit the bill for cardio work pretty well. Anything particularly long-winded and meandering such as post-, prog and doom doesn't have the desired effect whilst running.

Some of my favorite stuff to listen to while lifting weights are Cryptopsy's first two albums, Fleshgod Apocalypse - Oracles, any Hour Of Penance album, Azarath - Blasphemers Maledictions, Decapitated - Winds Of Creation, Suffocation's first two albums, Defeated Sanity, Aeon, Deeds Of Flesh, Melechesh, Severe Torture, Spawn Of Possession, or pretty much anything that is fast and belligerent.

When I do work out, which is pretty damn close to never, I go for something like Nile. The heaviness matches the horrible weight of the weights I fuck around with and the chaos of it all does a pretty good job at overwhelming the throbbing and ringing in my ears. lots of really fast double-bass work also seems to do the trick. If walking (my real idea of exercise) almost anything will do, though taking Stephen Fry's advice he gave on Top Gear, I'll typically just bust out an audiobook.

Quote:
When lifting weights, it's important to increase the bpm of the music without going too fast. Listening to a too-fast song could inspire you to attempt to lift faster. Not only could this cause injuries from poor form, but it's less effective than lifting with slow and steady control. Songs with a mid-range bpm of 130 to 140 with a clear beat and heavy bass are best, since it's easy to hear the downbeat as you lift.

It also really depends on what gets you pumped. I personally like songs that have climactic points and slowly develop to them. I know the livestrong article advises against technical or overly-complicated beats, so I'm going to go back over this and remove a few of the unnecessary songs. I also enjoy industrial-ish stuff... makes me feel like a machine.

I usually take a song from each BPM level and try to make a mix that slowly speeds up with my heart rate.

I've been working out to Nile a lot lately. Good speed and energy. Gives me a lot of strength and stamina when I really want to hit the weights.
