    'Lifting songs' has been done to death, but what about 'cardio songs'?

    I'm still putting together my lifting lists, but need something for cardio that I'm gonna be starting. What do you use? And do you need your music to get you jacked like in the weight room, or do you just need something to occupy you and not put you to sleep? I just need the latter. So far I have just:
    Run Like Hell- Pink Floyd
    Eye of the Tiger- Survivor. Heh heh.

    I love music to begine with so I usually just have the radio on. But the one song that kicks everything up a notch is Sandstorm, also for me it's songs that are fun, one of my other favorites is I touch Myself (yes I know it's 80's stuff) but this is what works for me

    Mozart- Requiem Mass in D minor (K. 626)



    I hate cardio.

    That song makes me think bad thoughs. Damn, there they are again!

    Anyway, back on topic. Like Belial, I hate cardio too, but electronic music with high bpm make it more bearable.

    Tryska and Allie: Sandstorm is one of my favorites too

    So you don't wanna get big, do you?

    Glad you included the key and the Kochel Number, since it's easy to get that requiem confused with all the other ones Mozart wrote.


    Anyway, it's a great piece (at least the parts Mozart wrote himself--up to the 'Lacrimosa') but I can't imagine doing cardio to it.

    Yeah, I know you're joking.



    Personally, I like Slayer.

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    Yeah, if you're writing a term paper or something.

    Pfft.

    Don't you know the old saying, "Live life as if you were writing a term paper"? (Anonymous, 1980)


    I don't either. I just made it up. (Me, 2003)

    i thought there is some research out there that certian tempos of music help you increase cardio performance?


    i read a bit of info on this a ages ago. but faster tempo music helps your brain with endorphins or something therefore you do not feel quite as tired/pain compared to no music at all.
    as for the actual difference it makes, that probably small.

    I hate cardio, but if I'm going to force myself to do it, I have to listen to thrash type stuff. Old Sepultura (Arise, Beneath The Remains), Hatebreed, Slayer... it's all good.

    I don't really care for cardio THAT much, but when I do it anything by Metallica does nicely.

    Listen to Rocky songs or something. I think the lifting songs will work well for this, too, though.
