Is track 8 correct? I can’t find an Andy Grammer song called that. Only a Meghan Trainor.

Dunna worry chuck, you can still run to Carmina Burana. Just make sure your Walkgramaphone has new batteries in it.

Odd as I can’t find it on Spotify.

At the gym I listen to Pandora: Classic Rock Workout.

Keeps me pumped and I only skip a few tunes.

There you go!

I tend to listen to Extreme Metal Workout (Spotify)

Still cant work out how to link it like you do above @ChevalierTialys with the album cover.


I’m with you @ilpirata only heard of one of them :anguished:

I just right clicked the playlist and then copy playlist link.

Ignore all this yoof music and behold the ultimate cardio workout album. Makes turbo training a thing of beauty.


The music I listen to is way too slow to workout to!

Bloody hell @mikechristopher thats mental music!! It’s put my BP right up…where’s my James Last album? :wink:

It’s gotta be extreme metal every time for me.

Need to get in that primal state to connect with the weights and nothing does it like a bit Nile, At The Gates or Anaal Nathrakh.

It just works.

Certainly does the job. Only time I will listen to heavy metal like that but gets me pumping and lifting more. If I’m on the treadmill or cross trainer the music doesn’t cut it. To stop me getting bored and clock watching I tend to watch something on bbc Iplayer / itv or sky on my mobile. I have a much better workout that way.

Hi Alicia, this is awesome. What was your method for choosing the right tracks for running? Did you use a tool such as this? I found some wicked tracks that helped me keep pace on my semi daily 10kms. Keep on running!
