This will be the first in a series of posts in which I’ll pose a question or scenario to the CFDV coaches and the conversation that follows.
For the first one, I thought we’d keep it fun and light and so I posed the following question:
“What is your favorite song and/or album to have on when you’re going for a 1RM PR?”
This is the actual conversation thread we had. Names were not changed to protect the innocent. Song titles are hyperlinked, but not all are safe for work.
Nick: Chiodos – Caves
Dana: Shinedown – Sound of Madness … OR… Lil John – Turn Down for What … OR … Chevelle – Hats Off to the Bull.
Rob: Ministry – In Case You Didn’t Feel Like Showing Up.
Chris: Mr Johnny Cash’s take of Trent Reznor’s “Hurt.”
Larry: Chris , the question was not songs to fall asleep to. Take this seriously.
Nick: Haha! ^^^ I was thinking the same thing. But I wasn’t sure he was kidding.
Kara: Sleigh Bells – Comeback Kid
Dana: Fort Minor – Remember the Name
Larry: For me, it’s Ice Cube’s “The Predator” album with the interludes taken out.
Larry: Lauren? Jacki? Anything? Belza, any Paramore songs you want to share with the group?
Nick: ^ Larry is killing me.
Kevin: Paramore – Ignorance or… Misery Business
Jacki: I don’t have anything specific. I’m lame. I’m shocked Rob hasn’t made a Creed joke for my lack of response.
Lauren: Sorry Larry, I don’t know the names to any songs! I’m bad at this game. Plus I hear nothing when I workout.
Larry: Good answer, Lauren.
Larry: Jacki, I’m disappointed. I’m sure you can name at least one of those ridiculous Nickelback or Matchbox 20 songs that you like.
Dana: Godsmack – 1,000hp … It’s their newest single. Get it.
Jacki: A. I hate Nickelback! B. Matchbox 20 is not for the gym, just private time. Ha! “Sail” by Awolnation helps me zone out and focus.
Rob: I’ve been lifting to a lot of 70’s FM Gold recently. In particular, Boz Scaggs and Todd Rundgren. Oh, and Ambrosia. Can’t forget those guys.
Larry: Hey, if you can’t PR to Genesis. I can’t do anything for you.
All right CFDV, let’s hear from you! What is your favorite song and/or album to PR to? Sound off in the comments below.
