Q
If you could only listen to one artist or group while you're training, which would it be and why?

Wow that's hard, but I'd probably have to go with David Guetta. His mixes are the absolute best. I can listen to him for anything—cardio, weight training, you name it. If you listen to him, you get a variety of songs with the best beats and the best energy. It's my go-to for training, especially for cardio and during contest prep, when I need the extra push from my music.

How does music influence your workouts?

If my iPod battery runs out and I just got to the gym, it's, like, the worst. I'm usually like, "Noooooooooo," and then I have to resort to using Pandora on my iPhone. I hate bringing my phone into the gym. I always have it with me, but I definitely don't carry it around with me while I'm training. It's in my gym bag. It's put away. I'm there to work, so no phone calls, no business—it can wait.

That being said, I need music during my workouts. It's one of my training essentials. I like my Beats By Dre, I like my music loud, and I do not like to be interrupted when I train. When I'm lifting weights, I prefer hip hop and rap, something hardcore with a good beat to intensify my lifts. For cardio training, I like David Guetta and Tiesto for high energy. I make playlists with different music beats and tempos for my cardio workouts. I need music.

"I like my music loud, and I do not like to be interrupted when I train."

What's the most difficult part about preparing for a contest?

The training is easy. The diet is easy. The hunger ... sucks. Also, restricting myself during social events is pretty hard. When you're single, it's kind of hard to meet someone or go on dates when you can't eat or drink.

What's your favorite thing to make with protein (besides a shake)?

A protein mug cake of course! This is my homemade protein dessert that satisfies just like any "real" dessert and tastes freakin' awesome. I'm a self-professed Reese's nut. Anything chocolate peanut butter, I'm in. Here's the recipe:

Ingredients
  • 1 scoop chocolate and peanut butter casein protein
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp PB2
  • 1 tbsp baking Stevia
  • 1/3 tsp sodium-free baking powder
  • 2 tbsp liquid egg whites
  • Unsweetened almond milk to consistency
Directions
  1. Mix together casein, flour, cocoa powder, PB2, Stevia, and baking powder.
  2. Stir in egg whites.
  3. Add almond milk to the desired consistency. It should be dough-like. I add a little extra almond milk because I like my cake a little softer.
  4. Pour batter into a coffee mug and cover with plastic wrap.
  5. Microwave for 75-90 seconds, depending on taste.
  6. Remove cake from mug and place on a plate.
  7. Put 1 tbsp natural peanut better in the middle and allow it to melt. It's like a chocolate peanut butter lava cake!
  8. You know you want one. Enjoy!

You're stranded on a deserted island with no fitness equipment. What's your workout?

All plyos all day: jump squats, pop squats, speed skaters, burpees, mountain climbers, plyo push-ups, high knees—the list goes on and on. Then, I'd do 50 steps of walking lunges on the beach, climb some trees, and do some Tabata training as well. Easy fix.

I love Vanity by Christina Aguilera. So relatable lol.

Does anyone else listen to just one song on repeat for their entire workout? I do, it saves the hassle of coming up with a whole playlist lol

These days I'm usually lifting to Eminem or something loud and fast. Coming up with playlists, I find difficult. Always get tired of them within a week or two.

Awesome article! Music is my pre-workout, nothing pumps me up like my good in-ear phones and some good emusic. My favorite listening right now is the Dada Life podcasts, available in iTunes for free. Just downloaded every one after 2010 and they ROCK.

Oh come on, get someone fit on a date and go eat some sashimi!
