Workout music has been covered aplenty on this site. But what about inspiring music videos to workout to?

So when working out on a cross-trainer like this I usually watch some of my favorite TV shows on my Ipod Touch. Yeah, I know, gotta update to a bigger better stronger device soon ;-) To get me pumped up a little more or to make it through the last gruelling climb, I regularly switch to music videos. And now I wanted to query the hive mind for some fresh suggestions. For more see some examples below. [more inside]

Cat Pee Cardio

Will exercising in a poorly ventilated basement near a cat's litterbox have any detrimental effects on my health or the quality of my workout? (Aside from the unpleasantness). Should I be worried about breathing heavily in this environment? Moderate-to-vigorous cardio (elliptical) plus heavy-ish weight training, about 30-40 minutes 5x per week.

Seeking best techno songs for workout mix

I'm looking for songs similar to James Brown Is Dead. I don't know a lot about techno but I stumbled on this one last year and it's the best all time workout song for me.

Can you help me identify movies about exercise? About working out, exercise trends, aerobics, jazzercise, etc. Sort of in the vein of this SNL skit.

Question about testosterone for a normal guy

My google-fu is failing me and I have a question about my testosterone level. I had a blood workup for a physical exam and they said normal range is .2-.8 (I forget the units); I am measured at .72. Is this test meaningful? I would think I would be a lot hairier and hornier than I am if I was close to the maximum of the normal range of blood testosterone level. [more inside]
