So what do you pump iron, stretch, jog, etc. to?

I find a nice ragga mix allows me to pump iron (my current regime) more and for longer. Baadddmaaaaan time!

I'll be switching to yoga soon - will I have to switch to LTJ Bukem?

I really like good lyrical hiphop if I'm doing weights. Lupe Fiasco at the mo'.

For other exercise, summat a bit faster. But I've a wide selection on my Mp3 playa so I can always find sumthing.

Hate it, cos my gym always has MTV or music channels on the TVs, so I have to take my mp3 playa just cos I can't stand alot of the shite that gets played...

Yoga is ace...But you'll have to concentrate too hard to have any music!

When I'm training I like to listen to either Wu Tang/Def Jux style hiphop, or some Plump DJs style breakbeat, or some old school electro like Mantronix and Bambaataa.

When I'm doing Tai Chi (non meditation) I listen to Aphex Twin Selected Ambient Works 2 and Brian Eno Music For Airports (prolly suit your yoga fine Dustek)

yeah -- if you're interested in EXERCISE MUSIC.....for gym music or music for fitness in general, I recommend European dance music.......

it's always the best motivational tool for me...

.... here's a compilation series on iTunes that I recommend -- the "Euro Club Hits" series:

aerobic wise it's got be generally any dnb set, as long as it's rollin' and/or wobblin'
it's proven that the higher the bmp, the harder and longer you work out.

weights wise. it's somethine along the lines of alix perez/d bridge/lynx mixes. ya na. kinda nice and easy but still regulated. they keep me focused and keep the intensity up.

i did and do find that when the bmp of tracks is changing, and/or there isn't a regular beat, it just doesn't seem to help me. i need that formulation in the music to help me out.

it does seem a lil too personal to the thread to be a bot, but it does say EXERCISE MUSIC so its prob on any thread with those to words in the title

dnb i find too fast to lift weights too

gotta be dubstep and grime (plastician on rinse)

or new york rap like old mobb deep, nas, d-block, the lox, BIG or old Ja-z mixtapes (not albums)

or UKhiphop like akala, skepta, klashnikof, plan B mixtapes,

or the rocky soundtrack lol
