BODYCOMBAT 43 & BODYATTACK 68 filming
Posted November 3, 2009on:
I’m smashed. Last night was a monster. BODYATTACK 68 followed immediately by BODYCOMBAT 43 – don’t get me wrong, it was an incredible night, but, man… I’m smashed!!!
Before I kick off – you may or may not know that I’m a bit restricted in what I can write about so soon after the filming. I can’t reveal any of the choreography or music at this stage… sorry! I know you all wanna know – and I’d love to let the cat outta the bag but, lovely as my friends at Les Mills are – doing so would force them to remove a part of my anatomy and feed it back to me (and I am fairly fond of my bits!)
It kicked off with BODYATTACK 68. Now to be fair, I’m probably not the best person in the world to write about BODYATTACK. I’ve done 66 several times (okay more than several as I moduled on it) – I’ve done 67 a couple times, and now I’ve done 68 once. So that gives me a grand total of 3 releases as a reference! But, man, 68 is a blast! It was presented by Lisa and a team of four guys; Grant, Bevan, Nathan and newcomer Brent from the USA – and of course we had June on the options (though did Lisa introduce her as Judy??) Look out for the Agility Track which draws its inspiration from American Football – it’s a beast!!!
With BA in the bag the next came BODYCOMBAT 43. Presented by a team of six (yes SIX!); Dan, Rach, Hernan, Judy King, Oscar Peiro Fernandez and Marcus Müller. They were dressed in red and white Venum shorts and a LM top – and all looked fantastic! The theme for this release? Ying and yang. The guys actually had the ying/yang symbol shaved into the tops of their heads and coloured red! Combat is becoming more and more MMA (mixed martial arts) inspired if you ask me with both 42 and 43 having each a different new move that could easily have been pulled straight out of the UFC’s octagon.
Highlights of the release for me? Easy. Track 3 is great, track 8 is freaking fantastic, but track 6, well, in the words of Raina; it’s E-P-I-C! Honestly I can’t say I’ve ever said a track 6 is my favourite track of a release before – but, definitely it’s the stand out track of BC43. It would be closely followed by track 8 however, this is a beast of a track with a 20 move combo that will smash you into a state of euphoria. We were situated towards the back of the class and all I could do at the end of this track was look to my mate Reymond and just smile – we had completely blown the roof off LM in that last cardio. Smashed is the only word to describe it.
Well without giving the game away there’s really not too much else I can say! Oh, the muay thai track has been used in combat before (there – that’ll get ya guessing!) – I’m really excited about 43 – honestly track 6 and track 8 alone are enough to get excited about! I’ve borrowed a pic from PJ (he’s been kind enough to give me permission before) but definitely head along to his blog to see more… and as always as soon as I get the all clear from LM I’ve give you more info (I warn you though that could be some time!) until then I hope this little teaser was enough to wet your appetite 😉
