Good song. You might want to check out "Attack", "This is War", "The Kill" by 30 Seconds to Mars.

"Till I Collapse" by Eminem is good too.

I don't know how people can train to music, honestly. Fortunately, it's banned in my gym. If I was going to listen to something, it would be jazz/blues.

I listen to the "Ill make a man out of you" song from the Mulan Soundtrack. GO AHEAD. LAUGH. (Only while running)

really? i cant imagine how ppl can train without it, especially boxing.

in my gym we were taught to box with music as a key, coach cranked it up and told us to feel the rhytm when shadowboxing and skipping. it worked wonders, i learned so much faster and i still feel my work is much sharper and more inspired no matter the exercise when im doing it to music.

Wow. I wouldn't come back to a gym like that, no offense. Music has no place in a gym imo.

pretty good list so far, I have a bunch of those tracks on mind for when I shadow box and run.

Jay Z has one called 'the champ is here' and it's got Ali screaming that famous line from when he was rolling up on George Foreman in Zaire to an African drum beat. Pretty damned hype if you ask me!

i can train either way. music helps if it is a speaker but i cant train with earphones / ipod because i keep thinking i hear things and have to take them out, then it turn out im imagining it.... weird. i think numb/encore by jay-z is awsome.

requiem for a dream is good for warming up.

try classical during stretching that also helps to relax not just your muscles but also your mind.

I know it's cliche but Eminem's Til I Collapse.

I just came back from running my sprints and in the middle of a 200m sprint that song came on. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA my 200m sprint turned into 400m! lol

For long distance running or boxing training in the gym I mostly listen to trance music. Just because if I set my mp3 player to my rock or rap section I find myself switching tracks too much as songs that are either too soft, or I'm just not feeling right now come on. with trance I can just set it to play my entire list and not change tracks through my workout.

For sprint work or strength and conditioning seessions I need harder stuff. Alot of the songs on this thread. Or some hardstyle/jumpstyle. Anything with a heavy bassline.

This is what's loaded on my MP3 player when I do running, shadow boxing and skipping rope.

I've "hand-picked" these songs and they're actually a part of my training routine as I run and jump rope to the tempo of the music that plays. These songs won't leave my MP3 player and I will not add anything new without going through my running program. My running coach told me to try it when I run alone. It's a great way to be coached and motivated without a coach and it's a great addition to interval training.

Here's my list:

Gang Starr - Put or shut up
Ludacris - Undisputed
Santigold - Shove it (Remix)
The Roots - Rising Down
Tron (From Fight Night Round 4)
Eminem - 3 A.M.
Freddie Foxxx - 24 Hrs
Mos Def - Life in marvelous times
TI - I'm Illy
TI - The hottest
Eminem - Not afraid
Cassidy - Get Em
Gang Starr - Full Clip
TI - Respect this hustle
TI - Swing ya rag
Xzibit - Double Time
The Game - It's okay
Reef the Lost Cause - Never
Leftfield - Inspection (Check one)
Ludacris - MVP
Rakim - Let the rythm hit 'em
TI - What up, what's haapnin'
DJ Quik - Get at me
Game - Remedy
Puff Daddy/Biggie - Victory
Biggie - Kick in the door
LL - Shut 'em down
Rakim - Follow the leader (one of my fav's)
NWA - Appetite for destruction
Freddie Foxxx - Tell 'em I'm here
Rakim - Know the ledge
Freddie Foxxx - Stock in the game
Ghost Face - Miguel Sanchez
Black Moon - Rush (will get you amped up!)
Freddie Foxxx - Inside your head
Ludacris - Southern Gangsta
Gang Starr - The Militia
Vakill - The Crown don't move
Cassidy - 6 minutes
Lil Wayne - A mili
Lil Wayne - Oh no
Lil Wayne - Go Dj
TI - Hurt
Prodigy (Mobb Deep) - Three
Xzibit - What a mess
Freddie Foxxx - Lazy!
Evidence - Believe in me
Freddie Foxxx - PAINE
The Prodigy - OMEN
Overseer - Skylight
Simian Mobile Disco - Acid and tits
Simian Mobile Disco - Hustler
LL - Back Where I belong
Hopkins vs. Trinidad highlight (by Gorilla Productions)
Muhammad Ali vs. Cleveland Williams Highlight (by Gorilla Productions) (cool down period)
The XX - Intro (cool down period)
PJ Harvey - You come through (cool down period/stretching)


I think music is a perfect tool to use when boxing. To me, boxing is all about rhythm. You just have to use it with caution as you may perform better with music playing in the background at your gym. It may be great when sparring but remember there are no music playing when you're in a real fight. You should not be depended on it, only use it as a tool.
