Music For Cardio and Strength Training Workouts From Olympian Kerri Walsh

Listen Like an Olympian: Kerri Walsh's Workout Mix

The following post was written by Olympic athlete and mom Kerri Walsh, two-time gold medalist in pairs beach volleyball.

Sometimes I enjoy working out without any music. I enjoy the sound of the world around me, the sound of my breath. My thoughts roll out in front of me paving my path and taking me where I want to go. Most times, however, I prefer to listen to my music. I get lost in the words. I get lost in the beat, and I find inspiration to push harder and harder within the songs themselves. Music has become my training partner on so many occasions, and here are some playlists that I have been enjoying lately:

"Send Me on My Way" — Rusted Root
"Little Sister" — Queens of the Stone Age
"Let My Love Open the Door" — Pete Townshend
"American Boy" — Estelle
"Live Your Life" — T.I. with Rihanna
"4 Minutes" — Madonna (feat. Justin Timberlake)
"Forever" — Chris Brown
"Bleeding Love" — Leona Lewis
"Don't Stop the Music" — Rihanna
"California Gurls" — Katy Perry (feat. Snoop Dogg)
"Disturbia" — Rihanna
