If you’ve already been over to Gorilla vs. Bear — and chances are good that you were — you know that Chris and I are posting some good workout songs today. I was lamenting my recent laziness about getting out and getting to the gym. And with the monumental Austin trip but a mere 48 days away — not that I’m counting — I figured it was time to get in shape.
So it’s time to get to LA Fatness … ahem, I mean, Fitness. After all, I convinced myself I’d work out more if I bought an iPod Shuffle. Seemed like sound reasoning at the time. It’s light, it’ll fit in my pocket. That is, when I actually put it in my pocket and get to the gym.
As for my music, I tend to lean toward the more aggressive mode for motivation: Rage Against the Machine, Jawbox/breaker, Quicksand, etc. But I’m thinking I should change it up. I know we have a few biking bloggers — Mallie at South of Mainstream and Ryan at My Yellow Country Teeth. So let’s get some suggestions going. What tunes keep you going throughout the day or at the gym?
These are a few I’ll be listening to while I try to bench-press the bar:
Heiruspecs: Something For Nothing
No Knife: Permanent For Now
RJD2: Cut Out to Fl.
Styles of Beyond: Winnetka Exit
Jimmy Eat World: You
BONUS — Come on! Push it, you Nancy boy!
DJ Radar and Puma as Four Hand Stroke: Sectorize
Queens of the Stone Age: The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret
