    So the other day I spent 100 bucks on a new pair of Nike's in hopes that I'll go out running and start to lose this weight I've got. I spent that much because it was the only pair that was comfortable for me as there's something up with my right foot/leg. Anyways,

    what's some good work out music? I mean music to get me pumped, keep me going, motivation, you know.

    And yes, obviously I'm going to download the Rocky montage theme.

    Nothing that's like scremo or any of that shit. Stuff you hear at the gym and everything is what I'm after.

    Lol honestly I think just listening to music you like will suffice because no one really knows your taste in music.

    Kavinsky's Outrun - It's an incredible "driving" album, but I think it should be fine for workouts, too. (Here's a preview of one of the tracks.)

    Beyond that...
    The List To End All Lists
    I just picked some songs that are generally fast paced and exciting, have some encouraging (more or less) lyrics, or both. Obviously not every track is going to suit you, but hopefully there's some suggestions you'll like in there.

    Great list! Here's what I got so far. I want to go running in a bit for an hour or so. Keep running until I can at least start trying to do sit ups. I actually can't do sit ups ever since I had surgery on my back.

    Keep in mind that if you're just getting into running, you might want to be careful about pacing yourself. Try a program like The Coach to 5K.

    It starts off slow, sure, but it all builds up, and it's better to pace yourself now than to strain yourself on your own.

    No my first post said I'm getting it.
    Yeah I did pretty good I think. I ran for like 30 minutes. I downloaded a pedometer on my phone, it said I ran 3.25km. Now I know it's not the best. But I weigh 225 pounds and 5'6'', and it's not muscle, well it is, but it isn't toned. So I have a lot of weight to carry.

    I jogged as best as I could, and when I couldn't jog properly, instead of walking I was doing like the short jog steps. Then on the last bit I ran as fast I could to the house. The music makes a huge difference.

    Listening to Kelly Clarkson, ACDC, the Rocky theme, some Daft Punk. And then on the last bit when I had no energy left, this song came on and I pushed myself.

    Make sure you get some good running earphones. It really pisses me off when they fall out.
