Okay, let’s be clear right off the bat, I do NOT want music recommendations, haha. I’ve seen a trillion of these threads come around, all of which are the exact same.
I’m just curious as to if people listen to music or not at the gym.
I’m in the camp of the guys who feel like they need music to get through. It provides me with motivation, enjoyment (hell, I love my music,) and overall incentive to go in and bust out a huge set when I get “that” song playing. Plus, it never hurts to cancel out whatever excuse for music they’re churning out on the Top 40 these days.
On the other hand, one of my old training partners (a good friend, but worthless in the weight room to be honest,) swore up and down that he couldn’t focus in the weight room when he had his iPod, and that it was more of a hassle than it was worth… and would never lift with music.
So, because there are exactly 0 topics that are interesting to me in GAL right now, I ask you: Music or no music? Why or why not?
