If “Unchained” by Van Halen doesn’t get you moving, then you’re likely brain dead.

Really, that whole “Fair warning” album rocks. Language alert on it, though.

Play it 4x for a twenty minute workout on the bike or treadmill.

I love Yes, but it's a bit complex for a work out.

Here's some I like for work outs (politics of the performers not considered).

Grace Potter and the Neanderthals “Paris”
Tom Petty “Runnin down a dream" and “You wreck me”.
Pearl Jam “I am mine”.
The Beatles “Get back”

If I was picking some Yes for a workout I might go with something off of Relayer, or maybe South Side of the Sky.

Many years ago, Chet Atkins put out an exercise tape. Listen to the greatest guitar player ever and get your workout all at the same time. Probably available on CD these days or download it to whatever those little jiggers are that hold all that kind of stuff.

Some of my favorites:

Set It Off — Audioslave
I Am the Highway — Audioslave
Track 16 — The Dust Brothers (from the Fight Club Soundtrack)
Music from the Right Stuff — Cincinatti Pops (Bill Conti, composer)
I’m Still Here (Jim’s Theme) — Johnny Rzeznik (Soundtrack to Treasure Planet)
Take Us Out — Rudy Soundtrack
High — Jimmie’s Chicken Shack
Bring It On — Lenny Kravitz
It’s Time for War — LL Cool J
Breaking All the Rules — Peter Frampton
Set it Off — P.O.D.
Damn Good Day — Podunk (might be hard to find)
Move — Thousand Foot Krutch
They Came In — Butthole Surfers
Prayers for Rain — The Cure (this one is hypnotic, best suited for running)
High Roller — The Crystal Method (slows down and gets weird after about 4 minutes)
Never — Gravity Kills

Thank you for posting some great stuff. It’s taking me awhile to listen to it all.

I knew FRiends would have good ideas.

I will need to put stuff on ipod but I think that it’s better to work out with music rather than watching “The Chew.”
