    Are you plugged in when you lift?

    Ive tried it and like it but currently dont own an iPod or anything else. How many guys have their own music goin at the gym? (Im assuming this is already a thread but I figure Id start a new one and get some fresh replies)

    My gym plays magic or something like it (easy listening). So, if I don't have my ipod, I go nuts.

    If you don't own an ipod you can still put on some random headphones with nothing hooked up to it so nobody bothers you. I've done it a few times when the battery had gone dead.

    I know too many f*cking people at my gym to have the luxury of ignoring everyone and putting my iPod on blast.

    I dont need an IPOD.
    Its not worth taking a IPOD there and have to take the earphones out every 5 seconds.

    People are constantly coming up to me and asking me questions.

    Mostly about how much training is. If i fight. Where i fight. Can they come in.

    Err!!! Im getting so fed up, i cant wait to get my own equipment in my house...

    Occasionally I'll listen to music, but my gym doesn't pipe in any music, and I like most of the people I know there so I don't mind chatting a little bit. I usually bring the Ipod though, just in case an idiot is present.

    Agreed. That crap music makes me want to slit my wrists, dye my hair black and talk about how sad I am on MySpace.

    Used to use it the whole workout. I broke my headphones and I'm too poor to by more, getting by without it. So yes I like it better, but I don't need it. It's a pain when doing dumbell presses, the dangling chord always gets mangled and it's hard not to smash the ipod in my pocket.

    I use a shuffle too just for the gym. I went in around 9 pm tonight, and it was the first time in over 6 months where I knew NO ONE at the gym, so I was able to lift without interruption, and without having to take off my earphones every 10 seconds.

    i dont remember the last time i did actual cardio in the gym but sh!t i would not go back to doing it w/o an ipod or something to listen to. it just makes it so much more tolerable and maybe even a bit enjoyable if a good enough song comes on.
