/ Training Playlist
Got any advice as to what tracks to include? Gyms always have awesome tunes that I've not heard before and I suck at finding cool new music.
C2C are my new band of the moment
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKLDR1TIWA4 - "Someday"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1uUIJPD0Nk - "Down the road" huuge tune and perfect for workouts
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZwP-1dBpHw - "Kim - She's a lion". This is perfect for endurance stuff with a decent tempo. I use it for cycling making sure I keep my RPM up. barrrgh KEEP PUSHING =) ... everyone needs this song in their life
In the Climbing Wall we tend to play a lot of radio 1s Essential mixes - search Soundcloud for them - they are 2 hours long and mostly pretty good. I like one by Massive Attack for some good beats but not too high tempo
I feel it my fingers, I feel it in my toes ...
+1 to Beastie boys, honestly, it's the only thing I listen to when training, get the anthology, at 2 hrs long you wont need anything else.
Watch some climbing videos and make note of the music/videos that gets you feeling really psyched. Then when you listen to the music later, it reminds you of the awesome climbing in the video, and gets you extra psyched.
Something like this works well for me: http://www.vimeo.com/57785012
If you ask people who work at the gym they would surely burn you a copy of the CD(s) they play ?
