What's on your iPod for TTs?

Yesterday for me - admittedly short TT - it was trance cranked all the way up for a whopping 3 1/2 minutes.

10 seconds, hit play, volume up

5 seconds grab the bars, position the cranks....

Jammin.

I was under the distinct impession that USA Cycling rules forbid ipod use in all events.

Or are you talking about training TT's. I presume.

During TT warm ups or doing TT on the trainer. Korn, Disturbed, A Perfect Circle, and it is always best to finish off with "Twist" by Korn.

Gotta have "The Distance" by Cake. "Knights of Cydonia" by Muse kicks ass too.

Too bad I don't own an mp3 player

I have a bunch of things on my ipod. During practice TT's I listen to: Rachmaninoff Piano Concerti #2 and #3, Wagner overtures (Tannhauser in particular) well as Keane, Smashmouth and some Guns & Roses.

Welcome to the Jungle would rock as a TT song. How about Dies Irae from Mozart's Requiem? Gob's cover of the Stones Paint it Black from the stir of echoes soundtrack? Evanescence - Bring me to life? Kid Rock - Bawitdaba? Faith no more - Epic? Bach - Toccata and Fugue in D minor??

Tell me more about the Prodigy songs?

Most of the time I just use some trance stuff I downloaded. Not particularly impressive music but it has the right pulsations for long TT efforts.

When I'm doing VO2 I definitely lean into the metal: Amon Amarth, Testament, Kataklysm, Martyr, Legion of the Damned, Slayer, Symphony X, ...

I use mine in warmups. Ice-T, Disturbed, Public Enemy, the previously mentioned 'The Distance' by Cake, and some silly songs - Snap's 'I've got the Power", Special Ed's 'Got it Made'. Oh and Prodigy.

I don't race with it, as I zone completely out on TT's and probably wouldn't hear the songs anyway.

'You Could Be Mine' is great for all-out effort, too.

I generally listen to the sound of my heart pounding in my ears. Drowns out the pain.

Spot on. Especially with the Amon Amarth.

Yeah, towards the end of a 20' TT (to get FTP) or in a real TT, when tunnel vision sets in. on my freakin' word I can't think of anything else but getting to the finish line.

Rule 1K3: (modified this year to include the following)
"Audio playback devices are expressly forbidden."

But for warming up, I listen to some Van Halen (the real VH).

That was just plain wrong - (not your comment, that was funny) - but it was wrong with Sammy and even worse with Gary.

You mean like sitting on my trainer warming up. Wow if you need to concentrate doing that, balance must be a real challenge.
