Hey evereyone, I just started CF about two weeks ago and I love it. I was just wondering if anyone had any favorite songs or playlists that they like to workout to. My gym plays somewhat slow music in my opinion and so Im always looking for more songs to put on my ipod to drain it out and help me squeeze out those extra two reps.
Thanks, later.

Oh man, I can tell you're going to get a lot of heavy metal suggestions.
You'll get the idea if you go to the exercise and demos page on this site. They all have music and I'm sure all of it is thrash metal or whatever. Listen to the one for the "Hollow Rock" exercise and get back to me. Oh yeah, make sure your grandma's not in the room at the time. :censored:

My playlist is speckled with metal (Metallica, Pantera, Iron Maiden), classic rock (Ted Nugent, Deep Purple, etc)and Hip Hop (Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Wu-Tang[original album only], Black Eyed Peas, Heiroglyphics). Basically anything that is either really fast ala metal or rock or that has a great rhythm ala Hip Hop.

The gym playlists ALWAYS suck. I dont see how people dont fall asleep or kill themselves during some of those songs! I mean, cmon, Jack Johnson during Cindy? No way!

Last song is by Charlie Hall...makes a nice "I can't believe I just did/survived this..." kind of song.

Blink 182
Random Trance mixes off bittorrent (good for remixing into specific lengths for racing or intervals)
Chemical Bros.
Alice in Chains
Static-X (in Orlando in April, who wants to go)
Rage Against the Machine
Motley Crue
Green Day

I can't seem to crawl out of the 80's and early 90's :-)

I've got a good Tabata This soundtrack with the Jackson 5 (ABC), Puffy Ami Yumi (Boogie Woogie #5), Old School Freight Train (Superstitious), and Jane's Addiction (Been Caught Stealing). The Old School Freight Train is cool, that's a Stevie Wonder song redone with bluegrass instrumentation (but still funky).

Springsteen (Wild & Innocent or Born to Run)
Johnny Cash
The Stones...yeah, lotta the Stones...whole lotta the Stones!
Drive By Truckers
The Ramones
The Clash
& a heavy load of upbeat, bebop era jazz stuff..Bird, Miles Davis, Charlie Christian...nothing drowns out your surroundings better...

99+1% of modern "metal" makes me want to cry for the state of contemporary music...
