    The No Ear-Bud Challenge

    Just out of the gym and I wondered who amongst us can work out without earbuds in? This is a challenge to try to work out as usual with no music/podcasts/nothing plugged in. Try it for a week, you'll experience a different level of intensity.

    I'm always amused in my gym as to how much phone-play is going on.

    Keep at it everybody!

    I run with no music this time of year because of the careless drivers and crappy roads. My gym is in my basement tho and unless its an early morning workout I have the heavy stuff crankin at all times, my extra motivation!! My music is my silence as it lets me zone everything else out but the next rep. Just wouldnt be the same without it haha

    No way! My gym doesn?t have radio, so when my wireless earbuds battery runs out all you can here is all the people breathing loudly. It?s disturbing. I just set my playlist, mostly hard rock and some rap. Set my phone on the window sill and get to work.

    My gym over here in KSA has nationalities from all over the world......so imagine the crazy crap I get to see daily. No way I could work out without them in as they tune out many things to include an Italian MTV like channel that is on the tv all the time that's way too loud.
    I'm the old guy in the gym so there is no way I'm gonna complain to the young kids!

    Same here. Only time I don’t have music or a podcast going is when I’m hiking in the hills.
    I go to the Mountains to loose my mind and find my soul.

    I don't work out in a gym but when I'm riding the stationary bike at home I read on my Kindle. It's amazing how the miles just add up when you aren't paying attention to the meter.
    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

    Guys it's the No Ear Bud Challenge - I'm challenging you to try to do a workout without earbuds in. :-)

    I have been working out without ear buds for about a year now, but I just bought a new set of ear buds and was planning to use them this week. You are on, Conibear. I'm gonna leave those ear buds at home.
