Best songs to get fired up to

Create: 08/02/2006 - 07:10

Which songs or song gets you fired up the most? There is usually that one song that gets the adrenaline going before a lift, wich one does it for you? Mine is Dig from Mudvayne.

Blood and Thunder by Mastodon is an awesome song. Nu-Metal is for bodybuilders.

"Angry Chair" by Alice in Chains is a good one. Anything by Rob Zombie, Slayer, Pantera, and Slipknot is good. A lot of guys like Hatebreed but I can't stand them to the point where they can't fire me up, yeah seriously. "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails is another rgood one.

No problem. Just let me know when you plan to off yourself so we can coordinate this.

It's funny how times have changed in the gym. When I first started weight training, in the early 60s, a serious gym was like going to church; the only sounds to be heard were the clanging of weights and the occasional grunt. I worked out at the Nothside YMCA in St. Louis for over a year and often saw the same, hardcore lifters on the days that I trained. We would nod to one another and sometimes ask for a spot or liftoff but I never even knew their names. Conversation was discouraged, to say the least. Looking back and comparing the 60s era with the gyms that I train in today I would make the following distinctions: There is more camaraderie and exchanging of useful information in today's gym and, it's harder for me to concentrate on max effort lifts because of the loud music than it was in the beginning. Somewhere in the middle of this is probably a happy medium. For those of you who have always trained to music this is probably no issue for you, anyway. Sorry for the rambling.

To the young kids who read the comments on this site, please don't get the idea that you have to be "Bad" and have a foul mouth to get noticed. You can set records at any age (mine is 62) and still be a gentleman.

I completely agree with this sentiment. Thus, I am going to suggest some odd songs for pumping your body, 160 BPM - Hans Zimmer (Angels and Demons)

Alone in the Dark by Testament, A fine day to Die by Emperor, Pit of Zombies by Cannibal Corpse, Wings by Vader, The entire Reign In Blood CD by Slayer(it's only 29 minutes long), The entire Slaughter of the Soul CD by At The Gates, the entire Storm of the Lights Bane cd by Dissection. I hate Metalica and all of that Nu-metal shit with a vengence, none of that faggot crap in my house, and someone needs to beat the crap out of Toby Keith, he's just tornado bait with a guitar. Hey, once in a while techno is cool, like Zombie nation.

'on my way to the cage' from rollins is the PERFECT PL-ing tune. actually, anything off of the come in and burn album. I cannot stress that enough. Probably the most underrated album of the 90s and philosophically goes hand in hand with anything anyone tries to accomplish with a barbell. Any of the first four Danzig albums works well, too. and my personal favorite is Dio's greatest hits. "the very beast of Dio." the 80s stuff may seem silly but the songs are really kind of uplifting.

I agree... when I go to the gym, I want to be able to concentrate on my lift, so I tend to put myself away from other people as much as possible. As far as music goes I listen to a lot of slipknot, mudvayne, slayer, metallica and godsmack. Good Lifting All.
