What song do you max. out to?

I know there have been tons of threads about music and training but I am just wondering, if you were going for a max. in the squat or deadlift what song would be playing?

Mine would have to be 'Stronger Than All' by Pantera or 'Immortal Rites' from Morbid Angel. Both are equally motivational to me.

Silence... I like to hear my own breathing.

Doesn't matter... by that point, all I can hear is the blood rushing in my ears.

Re: What song do you max. out to?

I get the no music thing when working out. When I am on the mountain bike, there is no chance I'll use headphones with music. Not just for safety, but because for some reason it does not seem right, to me anyway.

For a metcon or max effort lift though, I like music.

Music motivates me, and inspires me.

With all that said, for a max effort lift it's gotta be "Mind Over All" by Hatebreed.

True, on the actual lift, I don't really notice the music. But leading up to it, I sure do!

Re: What song do you max. out to?

I like these suggestions. May I humbly offer "In your words" or (appropriately) "Grace" by Lamb of god, from their album Wrath.

Or "11th Hour", from As the Palaces Burn. Also by Lamb of God.

Just...anything by Lamb of God really.
