    I only just last week started again playing music while training and I cant believe how much better I do when I have music playing. WTF have I been thinking for so long, Misery.

    OH yeah - I got a new PR today to Master Xploder from Tenacious D.

    Thanks for caring,

    Love Barb

    I've never tried it and I don't ever feel bored when working out.... but then sometimes I'll be squatting or DLing and I feel like I can maybe squeeze out another rep or go a little harder, and I bet if I had some hard shit blasting in my ears I'd push myself a little more.

    My gym has XM radio and they used to play the channel "top 20"; so it was always some decent new stuff with a bit of variety. The gym was just bought out and now he keeps it on an oldies station and refuses to change.
    Although I enjoy going to the gym less it only make me work harder.

    I like Phil Collins and Elton John as much as the next man but not while I'm working out. Something about being in a room full of sweaty men who are all secretly humming the tune to Crocodile Rock that seems a little... queer.

    my gym has radio from all over but usually it's just local country stations. it's brutal living in a small town. :rofl: On the bright side, there is never anyone at my gym when I go. :)

    When I forget my iPod, or when I'm on call and I have to lift without the iPod so I can hear my phone ring............I must say I have a much harder time getting psyched up listening to "I WANNA KNOW WHAT LOVE ISSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! I WANT YOU TO SHOW MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!" playing overhead.

    During my training sessions, we never have music playing, if anything it annoys the shit out of me and interferes with my concentration. That and it only makes it more difficult to hear what my coach is saying.

    Getting more pumped up is a secondary benefit to having your own music player at the gym. The primary, and far more important, one is to drown out the top-20 radio station the gym radio has on.

    better than radio stations with annoying ads inbetween the song "Hey there Dililah" playing for the 10th time in an hour.

    dude my fucking xbox got that green tint to the screen. pretty sure its not my tv since thats the only input mode thats green. im going hook an hdmi adapter to it and see if its still green so thatd eliminate the tv possibility. blows, im going to have to send it in for repair

Man, I was so PUMPED!! I did a set of squats on the calf raise machine and did the whole stack!
