There are a million threads on this topic, so I hope you will read through those instead of continuing another..... Use the forum search option to look for them - search for 'workout music' or similar things. Here are some threads to check out:

Some of my favorites are:
Paralyzer by Finger Eleven
Sexy Bitch by David Guetta
Sexy and I Know It by LMFAO
Right Round by Flo Rida and Kesha
I know you want me by Pitbull

I tend to prefere the club music with a good beat, I find it keeps me distracted from the workout but helps to keep my pace up.

"This is 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain and 100% reason to remember the name"

-- "Remember the Name" by Fort Minor

I almost always workout on the treadmill - mostly fast walking - my old knees can't take running any more and shoulder tendonitis and sciatica keep me from lifting or squating. Getting old sucks Smile

I listen to an eclectic mess of new and old - I setup my list so that the beat paces are in intervals - Queen, Michael Jackson - "Jam" and "They don't really care about us, Cage The Elepant (Ain't no rest for the wicked), lady gaga, Green Day, I warm up to Zombie by the Cranberries, etc

But the Fort Minor song really got me exercising again - I listened to it over and over to push through my first few sessions...then it got easier and now I have all sorts of songs.

I tend to go for psy-trans like Infected Mushroom...maybe some Tiesto for working out. On the circuit training days, lifting days, or slow stretching days, I like gothic or industrial fusion like Collide.
If you can spend years beating yourself up mentally and remain standing, you can HANDLE a few muscle cramps and cravings. A little pain has NOTHING on feeling insecure. Remember that next time you wanna quit. You can do this!

I like Linkin Park (fave band) mostly for working out. The whole Meteora album works well, so does Minutes to Midnight.

I rock out... the heavy drums and fast beats serve to up my tempo.I get amped up and run or bike harder without even realizing it! A couple faves....Butthole Surfers - Who was in my room last night / Metallica - Fuel / Avenged Sevenfold - Bat Country / Linkin Park - Faint / Alter Bridge - Metalingus / Prodigy - Smack my bitch up / Nine Inch Nails - Head like a hole



Stay the course, stay on point, stay motivated, dedicated, and you won't be stopped. Discipline. Perseverance. Focus. Dig deep and you will be victorious.

JessWhatINeeded - Do you have more than one work out play list? That ingenious! I have a workout and a yoga list.. but different lists for different activities is so smart! Why didn't I think of that before? I have definitely noticed that some music is better on the elliptical or treadmill, while walking or weights would be better suited for other music.

Exercises with an Out of Commission Ankle
Consider joining a fitness gym. There are machines that up your heart rate without putting weight on ankle. Rowing machine for one. Or a pool, if available for swimming.
