The only thing I hear is everything around me... one of very few lifters, who do not use any music. I concentrate on my lifts, and nothing else. Besides, I'm too cheap to buy an MP3 player...

You know...I find this weird but I am a musician (I sing and play the piano) and when I lift, I can't listen to music. I have to tune it out when I am lifting. I mean it can be in the background but there isn't a particular song or artist that has to be playing when I lift. To get me pumped up for the gym though, I usually play "The Beast" by Tech N9ne or some Linkin Park

I'm with you. I don't know how some of those cats do that with their MP3's and all. I don't mind the music on in the gym. I can tune it out or listen to it as need be. My favorite music (horn driven funk/soul and contemporary big band) isn't condusive to smashing weights. I will say this though. For my money, you can't beat old school Rush when it comes to lifting music. The Spirit of Radio or Tom Sawyer, etc.

A big part of the mp3 player for me is that I detest much of the music played in gyms. Most top 40, pop, r&b, I just don't like it. I have to listen to that **** all day at work and then in the gym too--no way.

I must admit that I've forgotten my mp3 player on many occasions and I did just fine without it. I also can hardly remember what songs I listened to today. But, it enhances the atmosphere I desire to lift in, helps me tune out all the bull**** around me, and simply makes it easier for me to reach the desired level of intensity for moving maximum weights.
