Training with music?

I havent ever weight trained while listening to music.
Do any otheres prefer to train with music, what is your reason?
Motivation? or to cut out other noise in the gym and avoid disturbances?
Also what kind of music?

    Listen to music because it motivates me. Also stops me getting bored. Listen to rap/hip-hop personally.

    Training to music is wrong. How can you listen to your coach or other advice and helpful comments with that going on ?

    Never been to a gym without music playing very loudly. Don't go to your average fitness gym either.

    I used to train to music all the time. Definitely felt that listening to some death metal or thrash got me really fired up. But a few months ago I forgot my iPod when I went to the gym one day and so I had to train without it, and I realised that it actually makes no difference to me whatsoever - I can't even hear the music when I'm doing a set, all my focus is on the iron.
     
    Now I would find it hard to train with an iPod, I would find it distracting and would make it hard for me to remember all the mental cues that are so important when doing big lifts, and also it would be quite awkward and get in the way when I'm doing things like deadlifting and squatting (particularly now that I've started using a belt).
     
    Now I just listen to some music to pump me up in my car on the way to the gym, does the job.

    I can take it or leave it when actually training - but I do find that if I'm feeling lazy and half dead then some brutal music can wake me up enough to actually train in the first place!

    Used to love training to music although if there was none it never bothered me, if I was going for a big lift/very heavy set then often preferred it quiet.
     
    Can't be bothered to listen to it now much but on the odd occasion anything Rock/Metal/thrash orientated.

    Have it at a volume were you can hear people? This is funnuly enough the volume that most gyms play music at :)
     
    I like music and like training so both together it's great. Off course my current gym just plays banile crap so its a moot point atm.

    I vary, sometimes listen to it other times wont bother, basically if i have pockets in my training bottoms then i will otherwise will leave it.
    Always listen to music whilst running though, find that helps a little

    I would have to disagree with that, most have in too loud in my opinion. Adders has no music and it's great

    I have the head phones in all the time, dont see how that is wrong? I use it to drown out the RnB sh1t they play on the speakers and crank out some good sets listening to GnR or Metallica, maybe a bit of SOAD.
     
    Also stops people interupting my sets when i'm trying to concentrate on what i'm doing.

    Nigga please, i'm like half way through a set...

    music helps get me into the zone and helps me block out pain and other crap at my gym.

    System while training. Never!
     
    1. its not heavy enough
    2.you MUST sing along with it. and thats a big no no in the gym.
     
    I find i listen to metal, or some epic west coast Gangstar rap

    I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

    Also what kind of music?

    Two main reasons:
    -to force people to leave me alone
    -so I don't have to listen to the drudge on the radio
     
    But I love music and routinely listen to my MP3 player anyway so gym is just an extension of that.

    Unaffiliated.

    If I forget my headphones and I'm at the gym, I actually travel back to get them. I always train harder with music, it always gets me in 'training mode'.
     
    I have a heavy playlist for just the occasion

    Usually have a set of headphones in me ears....stops ramdomers talking to me, also the music doesnt help during lifts..as you more worried about dropping teh weight on yrouself..but between sets can get ya fired up/ carry ya when your tired.
     
    Usually have a bit of everything for the gym..Metal/ Trance/ Hardhouse.
    Ive actually been put of some lifts when I have to listen to the gym...they had the heap of sh!t Back to Black song..cant remember the half dead mule that sings it...was doing deads..had to wait till it was over.

    Mixed response really, guess its personal preference, might give it a go tomorrow morning and see if it benefits me in any way.
