BODYPUMP 71 filming
Posted June 5, 2009on:
Hey team, I’ve been meaning to post this since the GFX but thought I better hold off as Les Mills were a lot more protective of this info this time round. I wrote this some time ago along with a post on the filming of BODYCOMBAT 41. I’m going to hold off on posting the BC41 info (by request), however, as a lot of the BP71 info is now starting to float around the net I think this should be kosher – in any case I’m sure LM will let me know quick smart if it’s not!! 😉
“For regular filmings, you can rock on up to the studio like any other class and then go in and set up your gear, like any other class. Naturally, there’s a whole lot more demand for things like steps, risers, bars and plates – sometimes you can get crushed by the large number of people clamouring for stuff – though GFX takes it to a whole other level… Because of GFX, however, there was a massive line of instructors that wound down through the stairs of the group fitness studio, even going down outside onto the street. I was absolutely slackjawed at the number of people waiting to get into the room.”
Slackjawed is right… it was crazy! I was with a group of 6 friends (all fellow instructors from my gym) and we barely made it in even though we were there over an hour before! We managed to secure a possie about 4/5’s back – if we’d arrived probably ten minutes later we’d have been turned away – and A LOT of people were (unfortunately cameras were strictly banned so I have no pics). Presenters were Glen Ostergaard (well duh!), Susan Renata and Mark Sinclair – and it of course goes without saying they did a fantastic job. I could write a heap about the happenings in the filming itself – but you can read a brilliantly written blow by blow account on Raina’s blog so I’ll just get down to the nitty gritty; the music!
Now bear in mind this is only from memory so I may have made a mistake (I think I’m correct though!) – if I track isn’t listed it means I’ve forgotten it but I’ll post it as soon as I can remember (or more likely when someone reminds me!). Also the links to youtube may not be the exact mixes – but they’ll give you a fair idea.
Warm up: Magnetized (Original Mix) – James Sampson
Squats: Summer of 69 (Picco, Jens O & Maddin Original Mix)– Mega-mania
Chest: Right Round – Flo Rider
Back: When love becomes a lie – Liz Kay
Triceps: Black Fingernails, Red Wine – Eskimo Joe
Biceps: What I’ve Done – Linkin Park
Lunges: Doesn’t Matter – Hypasonic vs. Jorg Schmid
Shoulders: Operation Blade 09 – Public Domain
Abs: Circus – Britney Spears
Cooldown: Sober – Pink
Yes I know more Pink…. aren’t we lucky!! 😛 And Britney even (whether that’s good news or not I’ll leave up to you!)
For you keen combaters one of the tracks above is also in BC41 – but I’m not gonna tell you which one… just yet! (I know I’m evil!) – combaters will also recognise Summer of 69 as the warmup from BC37 – and it is the exact same mix too from what I could tell.
As for the release itself – I loved it. But, that may have had a lot to do with the electric atmosphere of the GFX. In any case I’ll post more as I know more and be interested in hearing your thoughts on the music thus far. Enjoy! 😀
