Move to this

Post by svenbjornjorgensen on Fri Apr 05, 2013 8:38 am

I have trouble getting myself to workout. I have further trouble working out without music. It breaks down my fantasy that I'm perpetually in a montage and achieving a goal in a short period of time. I'd love it if my new-founded peers would devulge their favorite 15-30 minute track listing for me to jiggle on the sidewalks to.
Here's my first draft based on available songs on my iPod, but I'm excited about the prospect of trying out other hip-shakers:
1. The Apples In Stereo - Same Old Drag
2. Jeremy Fischer - Scar That Never Heals
3. of montreal - The Party's Crashing Us
4. La Sera - Please Be My Third Eye
5. Republic Tigers - The Nerve (Nervous Dancing)
6. Black Kids - I've Underestimated My Charm (Again)
7. Robyn - Stars 4-Ever
8. Chiddy Bang - Truth
9. Mirah - Apples In the Trees
10. Steve Harley - Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)

Personal account. Not for everyone, lots of krautrock/hardcore/weird dance music but it helps me move when I am in a self hatred head space.

The song that always makes me feel amazing is Stronger by Kelly Clarkson. I feel like a BAMF when I'm running to that.

I could suggest plenty of music, but what I have found that motivates me best is listening to podcasts when I work out. I don't really have any other good outlet/time to listen to them because they often require your full attention. Therefore it's impossible to get actual work done while listening to them.

However, I hate falling behind on podcasts so the gym is a great place to listen. Lately I will work out for a full episode of This Feels Terrible. I can spend an hour on the elliptical paying full attention to the podcast, and yet I'm being productive in a non-work way! Knowing there is a new episode of the podcast out motivates me to go to the gym because I know it's basically the only place I can listen to it, other than bed.

Maybe a small rotation is what I need to get back in it. (Probably not):

1) Matt Pond PA - Starting
2) The Long Winters - Shapes
3) Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah - Some Loud Thunder
4) Quasi - Our Happiness Is Guaranteed
5) Ben Kweller - This Is War
6) Sloan - It's In Your Eyes
7) Roy Wood - Forever
Cool Metronomy - Corinne

I find that I am using the Zombies, Run! app, I only get through like 4 songs. Also, I need to purge this iPod of mine.
