Work out tunes for the ageing gamer....

So after a few weeks of creating my new work out routine, tweaking things, maneuvering around old and new injuries I have finally settled on a plan for the next 6 to 8 weeks.

Only one piece of the puzzle was missing: the tunes. Well I have spent some time combing through my iTunes and selecting the songs I want to work out to. I finished with quite a range of music styles.

In the end pretty much everything gets represented here and I am happy to say that 20 years later Rush still gets the blood pumping. Heck there is even one I found on a WoW machinima. there anything wrong with the fact that about 1/4 of this list includes songs from the "ultimate sex mix" we made a while ago....

I used to dance to Blue on Black and Deja Voodoo... I have the entire catalog of Cats, Setzer, BSO, and side projects if you want anything burned.....
May I suggest Bodies by Drowning Pool and Crazy Bitch by Buck Cherry for a little work out music also?
Blizzcon tix on sale this Saturday. Are you gonna go?

Hey, thanks for the suggestions, I'll go check em out.

Bodies and CB were both considered but got knocked out by a couple of he Rush songs.

The entro to Big money and Tom Sawyer just get my brain in the right state of mind.

BLIZZCON? ahhh I wish...
