    What's ur fav lifting music?

    OK just for fun...what is everyone's favorite music to lift to? Doesn't have to be just 1 type.

    My favorites for lifting:

    70s, 80's, and 90's rock
    90s and 2000s hiphop
    70s funk

    cardio: same as above but throw in a sprinkle of EDM or house on occasion

    My current fav song for maxing or heavy sets:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LI-Gjg_vi3A


    What are your fav genres for gym and/or what song gets you hyped? If anyone says "the Rich Pianna theme song" I will puke in my mouth and then punch my face.

    What's ur fav lifting music?

    Played this playlist during my workout today. In general Iíll play pretty much anything during training but Iíll always do something slow during cooldown.

    I tend to listen to the heavier end of music. Occasionally, listen to trance for cardio.

    Like the guy above, on the heavier end of the spectrum. If I can hear you over the music pounding my ears at the gym, you will get a death glare from me because you are seriously talking too loudly. You might want to check out the metal thread and see if any of it is your cup of tea.

    With my girlfriend I listen to trance/ house when we train together, which is almost always. By myself, I’ll throw in some hip hop or heavy metal.

    I'd prefer to lift in silence, but unfortunately my gym blasts rap, hip hop and pop shit.

    I usually just have conversations with the voices in my head.

    I have had times I am in the mood for silence and don't bring my headphones. But it only lasts 1 time because my gym has a mix of good classics and really bad pop music, so when I don't bring my own headphones I regret it.

    I shit you not... my gym plays Gay FM.

    It's a proper heavy lifting gym with competitors in bodybuilding shows, and they blast Gay FM all day.

    True story.

    I really wish gyms would play a "white noise" that isn't irritating or overpowering, but covers up the talking of others. If people want to listen to music, they'll bring headphones.

    Most of the time they give me pretty good advice. sometimes its a little sketchy and we have a difference of opinion.

    Yeah now if I could only figure out how to actually get them to pay or do more of the work. lol

    I donít know what gay FM is, but there are gay people In about every profession including bodybuilding so maybe gay guys own or manage the gym?

    In the USA we have a gay gym chain. It is called the YMCA.

    Ok maybe I should have narrowed it down to just YMCA locker rooms. I made the mistake of going to a YMCA sauna when I was younger. Never again.

    Iím a pretty superstitious dude, so anytime I get under 405 or more on BP, it has to be ďBrokenĒ by Pennywise. Every single timeÖ

    Other than that, metal, 90ís hip hop, classic rock, new alternative. Pretty varied as long as it had some soul

    After being subjected to a gym blasting the worst cRAP on earth at deafening volumes, I'd like to just lift with no music and nobody talking. Just the sound of weights clanking and people straining.

    I wear slim-profile (like for the gun-range) noise blockers at the gym.
    I like no-noise. Also keeps the talkers/yappers away...

    Blasted my ears for decades with hard-core, aggressive metal; loud enough to completely drown out conversations & the music played by the gym. My hearing suffered because of it. For the past 4 months, I just tolerate whatís played (they keep it at reasonable levels thankfully) and Iíve adjusted. My hearing thanks me for it & Iím not ready yet for hearing aids (but the time is coming). However, in the car, itís hardcore, aggressive metal (just not at the intersections).

    Every time I go to the gym, I wish to myself that I were deaf. I can't play music in headphones loud enough to drown out the shit they play in there. The management doesn't care about my complaints. They said they're trying to attract a younger hiphop crowd.

    But even if I could have them play music that I wanted to hear, I don't know what I'd pick. After turning myself over to Christ, I really can't listen to the death metal and thrash metal I used to listen to all the time. It's mostly about satanic crap and morally I just can't anymore.

    The best thing I did was build my weight training space in my house. At the time I trained in commercial academies, they plays sound garbage.

    I understand what you're talking about, something very similar happened to me. Some gym hostesses I trained controlled the sound in the gym. And imagine the sound these girls put on; "Funk BR !Sim ť a fake Funk" where they only talk about sexuality and treat all women as sluts in the lyrics and still they like it. Lol Well, I listen to heavy metal at my home gym, but only on headphones so as not to disturb the family... You're right about heavy metal and thrash metal lyrics, they're pretty macabre... But that kind of sound seems give you more energy to train and courage to bear the heavy load.

    Man did I crank my earphones up in the day; had to, to cover up that horrible gym music & annoying talkers. Hey pal, can you talk even louder on your phone conversation?!?

    Understand about the satanic references, never cared for it & never really liked any bands that made them.

    Planet Fitness has been the perfect gym at the perfect time for me (and my wife). Even the music is non-offensive & at reasonable levels.

    Sincere congratulations on finding & embracing Christ.

    That's definitely depends on my mood! But most often this should be sth active and rhythmic. I currently have Sirius subscription for three months, so I listen to the radio lately. However, I don't want to continue the subscription. I wrote to https://sirius-xm-radio.pissedconsumer.com/customer-service.html for cancellation, however, haven't received an answer yet.

    I recently created my own playlist for lifting. It took me a long time to find the right music and I'm happy with the result. I can share it via file sharing. I bought a premium account at https://getfreedays.com/keep2share. A very handy context menu allows you to send music without using a browser. Full statistics and support are always at your service. The program does not need special settings and additional utilities. Sending and downloading occur instantly, unlike conventional systems when you have to wait for hours to upload archives or make their download to the server.

    Good backround music that i vibe with is always a little bonus but I for one cant concentrate on the workout if theres music blasting in earphones. I loose track of sets, reps, rest breaks etc.
