Playlist for Training

New Playlist for Boxing Training

One of my super-tough MMA chick friends (who will box with me periodically and who is helping me learn ju jitsu: fist bump Junie!) sent me a few suggestions for refreshing my quickly-getting-tiresome Shuffle playlist for training. Her main additions to my existing soup were:

  • Nine Inch Nails, Head Like a Hole
  • Alice in Chains, Again, Over Now
  • L7, Shove

While I was downloading, I also got the Rev Theory album “Light It Up” and some fresh Rob Zombie (Spookshow Baby). A new training playlist does wonders for me. Charges me up better than energy drinks and gives me mental edge. And new studies prove that loud rock music is really good for you! Like I needed incentive to jack up the volume.

Here are a few other tunes that are staying on the list for now:

  • Hoobastank, Just One
  • Saliva, Your Disease
  • Sixx:AM, Life is Beautiful
  • Slipknot, Vendetta (what an awesome drummer!!)
  • Norma Jean, Robots 3 Humans 0
  • Pearl Jam, Love Reign O’er Me (my sentimental concession)
  • Korn, Twisted Transistor
  • Disturbed, Avarice
  • Deadsy, The Key To Gramercy Park
  • Celldweller, Own Little World
  • Emery, Studying Politics
  • Heavy D and the Boyz, Now that We Found Love
  • Pillar, Frontline
  • The Offspring, Nitro

Feeling all refreshed, now, and ready to Kick. Some. Ass. Feel free to post your own suggestions (for music, not ass kicking. Well, you can do both, I suppose.) below. And remember: stay healthy, people. Crank it way the hell up.

    click click boom.. i love Saliva. you also get extra snaps for Sixx AM. try Animals by Nickelback for a good cardio-esque song. just about anything off Jane’s Addictions album Nothing Shocking is good ‘pump you up’ music. i personally tend to gravitate toward the lickety-split rapid-fire drumming style found in just about any Ten Foot Pole song.

      I knew you would come through for me on tha tuneage. I’m trying not to hate on Nickelback but they get sooooo much airtime at my house that I grind my teeth when I have to listen to them again. I’ll love them again when I don’t have to listen 24/7.

      I need to check out Ten Foot Pole, then. I dig Joey Jordison’s style and am eager to find more like him. I mean, more who aren’t Neil Peart.

    Thanks for the song suggestions, I’ve added a few to my playlist. I do about 45 mins of boxing a day and my songs are getting pretty old. Have you added anything since you posted this? I am always looking for new stuff.
