    Calling all weight lifters, cycler's, runner's, etc..

    What are you into musically while training, and most importantly, what is PRS driven?

    I always have Tremonti(AB/CREED/SOLO), Journey, Nugent, Jason Aldean, Submersed, Eye Empire, 3 Doors Down, and Sevendust in my monitors.

    Weight training - listen to the news
    Cycling - listen to traffic (I'm not very trusting of motor vehicles)
    running - I don't believe in running
    in door cardio trainer - some old vinyl I've digitiized and haven't heard in a while - most recently Johnny Winter and Stevie Winwood

    I listen to the Fat Boys... Seriously.




    It gets me psyched to lose weight so I can eat doughnuts again.

    RATM for sure. I like some Pantera in there too.

    The heavier the music the better for me. I listened to Whitechapel today. I find working out a great time to listen to full albums.

    When I train, I like listening to Korn, Linkin Park and the like. Gotta get the motivation going.

    Nothing when cycling... Just too dangerous!

    When working out at home (Which hasn't happened in a while!) I go for upbeat stuff... And yep... Eye Of The Tiger is probably on there!

    RATM is great for training, especially Evil Empire.

    Cycling - nothing, I like to hear cars coming up behind me.

    Running - nothing, I work on my form every time I run. If I'm making no noise then I'm doing it right (and my body thanks me for it). If anyone is interested in low impact running, let me know!

    Stationary bike - TV, usually Craig Ferguson, but also concert DVDs.

    Cycling (bike trail), walking, cutting grass - just a variety of stuff thrown on an iPod Shuffle in shuffle mode. I never know what's coming up next.

    I do know this from experience - a couple years ago, I did about a 35-mile ride very early in the season, so my legs weren't in great shape. I was struggling coming back, especially the last two-three miles, and just when I needed that up-tempo hard-hitting boost...a comedy routine came on. UGH! So not what I needed at that moment!

    Nothing for me when cycling or running. Both activities are my time to unplug and give full attention to the task at hand. I like to be fully aware of my surroundings.

    When cross-training I usually just put my collection on shuffle, which doesn't always pan out. I really should steal some of these suggestions and make a playlist of my own. Early Staind and Disturbed would work well. Anything heavy, really. For something PRS oriented, some Butterfly Effect would be good.

    Ooh, how about some Incubus. Pardon Me, Blood on the Ground, Nice to Know You, etc. Big, heavy, Archtop tone.

    100% agreed. Working out is when I get myself acquainted with a lot of new, full albums.

    Last few albums Ive had in the ollll ear buds while lifting weights:

    Every Time I die - Ex Lives
    The new Killswitch Engage Album (like Howard Jones as the front man better, BUT, new album is killer)
    Rise Against - Endgame
    Underoath - Define The Great Line
