Motivating Heavy Metal For Lifting Heavy Metal

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd resurrect this topic from the previous forums.

Discussion about good metal for lifting or just good metal. Don't need to be too picky. :P Might get people to discover new bands to listen to.

Still love this song for heavy squats or deadlifts. Pretty much the whole invictus album is good workout music.

I have been lifting to Pathogen, you can listen to their music free on myspace.

Have a listen to Shallow and Identity Theft.

Tryfis, liking that song quite a bit actually. Laughed at the band's name though.

Starting to dig Cypecore a lot lately.

Can't believe Tool hasn't been mentioned yet. They're my favorite for the heavy. I espeically like that many songs include a 30 second-2 minute build up, which I use to get focused. Most of their songs have a very steady tempo with a speed that matches what I try to go for in my lifts. Alrighty then!
