Default Working out with music

When I was in high school I use to work out heavily, I had a six packs and abs. Then high school ended. Half the reason I worked so much was to attract girls. So when I got into a serious relatioship I decided to stop working out. Eating junk food every day and never working out wasn't the best combination for my ever so finely trimmed body. So I got fat. Eventually **** went sour with my girl and we broke up. Since I'm single, lacking confidence, and in need of a new body I'm going to review the music I listen to as I work out.

When working out, I always preferred intense music. The more intense the music was the better. It allowed me to put myself in the right mindset for setting a personal record. So everything i review needs to meet that criteria, pure intensity! The more intense it is the better.

The first album I'm going to review is Iwrestledabearonce's album Late For Nothing



As far as this album goes, the screamed vocals and heavy instrumentals had some intensity. But the lead vocalist singing killed intensity every single time. Her voice is to mellow to help create that intensity. Her screams can be brutal and powerful, but her voice is a bit weak and doesn't carry well.

Another thing that killed the intensity of this album was the synth. The synth was interspersed and slowed the songs down and in no way helped build tension. I enjoyed the album for listening, but working out? Nah. Needs more power.

Please leave suggestions for other albums you think I should review for working out.

I really like Exmilitary as workout music.

Liked what I've heard thus far. I'll give them a try in the near future. As for Guns 'n' Roses, I can't standl Axl Rose's voice. It's like nails on a chalkboard.

Today's workout music included:
Helmet - meantime



Not much to say on this album. As far as listening goes it is pretty damn good. But I just felt the intensity workout music needs, wasn't really there. It had some, but not the kind I was wanting. I think it's a great album still, just not right for workingout.

That is some seriously abstract album art.

Since we're laying down recs, here's one I used to work out to


EDIT: And this one too

A six packs and abs. What is that, like 12?

Let's get Physical! Not really. I suggest Hi-NRG/Synthpop, like Dead or Alive.

Lol. I didn't even notice that til now.

My Internet went down, and I finally got my provider to get off their lazy asses and fix it. Didn't get to listen to Exmilitary when working out because of this but I will soon.

Today's workout included Sepultura's Roots.



This album is intense, except for the occasional Native American sounding Intros. Those intros help build the songs but kill that intensity in the process. The song Jasco is a real big issue when it comes to this. It sits right after Born Stubborn. Which is such a great song that you just want another track of that type of that intensity. Instead though, you get... Jasco. And it's not that Jasco is a bad song, but it doesn't maintain that ferocity that the album had built. And the track Itsari just outright sucks! I hate that one. Luckily after that things stay semi normal. 'Til we get to [Untitled] which... Sucks. It's only because I hate that native American sound. I hate that style. Great for setting up a song, terrible for being one.
