"Does MUSIC boost your exercise and fitness? If so what kind?"
If I am doing exercises like hitting the heavy bag, doing hanging abs, and sometimes when riding the exercise bike, I often like upbeat, faster temple songs to keep me fired-up.
...most rock and roll from the late 50's to the early 60's. (Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley, etc.)
...rockabilly songs such as "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Be-bop-a-lula." And faster country western songs such as Williams' "Jambalaya" and "Kaw-Liga."
...more modern rock-n-roll such as the Stray Cats' "Rock this Town" and "Stray Cat Strut."
...up-temple country western songs like McGraw's "Indian Outlaw" and Tritt's "Girls Gone Wild."
In other words, I often like "fast" songs to keep me in the mood for exercising. However, at times I also love listening to blues, moody songs, ballads, etc.
