My longevity here at BAB and being a life-long rock music lover has certainly bled into my exercise routine over the years. But while I’ve always used music for my martial arts, weight training and yoga, an unlikely pairing has taken place in recent weeks.
I began doing Tai Chi at the start of the year. And while I love the practice, I’ve gotten bored with the new age-y soundtrack. So lately I’ve been pulling up some awesome mellow rock for my sessions. Here are my staples so far:
But I could use your help in enhancing my rock and roll Tai Chi music library. What mellow rock masters would you recommend?
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
