Friday Fun: Music and the gym
Music is an integral part of exercise for me. Sometimes I think going to the gym is about having a place where I can listen to music without any interruptions. Or maybe it’s more that moving while listening to music seems to free up my mind more than just lying on my bed with headphones does (I can never just sit still and listen for long.) I won’t work out without music. I have gotten to the gym before only to turn right around and go home because I forgot my headphones or ipod.
I always love to hear what people like to listen to while working out. People who would claw their own ears out if you tried to play techno in their car who, nevertheless, love to run to techno. For me, I love working out to crappy pop music that for the most part annoys the hell out of me when I’m not working out.
So I thought it would be fun to share some of the music that really gets me going these days. It’s video-heavy so I’ll go ahead and cut it.
For those who are as nerdtastic as I am, YES, this is the music from the latest “Watchmen” trailer.
Kelly Clarkson’s new song. I credit it with my adding 5lbs to my bench press.
Yes. I own it. *sigh* Judge me.
This makes me want to take up dancing again.
This one is like my HIIT anthem. Hell yeah.
So what do you listen to in the gym? Can you workout without music?
