Shortest & Longest BODYCOMBAT mixes (BC1-BC54)

Posted on: November 6, 2012

No changes to the longest or shortest possible BODYCOMBAT mixes with BODYCOMBAT 54 – though it does have a couple biggies in there! Track 2 comes in at a whopping 6:29 minutes (and it’s a HARD six and half minutes too!) and to my mind is the peak of the class difficulty wise. The other working tracks all sit in the 5 – 5.5 minute mark, until track 8 which is a pretty decent 7:13. All up BODYCOMBAT 54 totals 55.8 minutes so a pretty good length.

For completions sake I’ve put the existing longest and shortest mixes below – as always take note of this when you start mixing!

Glen, we need a shortest//longest BP. 🙂

I only have back to like BP54 so I’d be no good to you! Would be interesting though – but generally Pump tracks are much more reasonable in length, in fact don’t think I’ve ever seen one over 6 minutes

I’ve only got 2 that are over 6 minutes. 1 newer, 1 much older.
Ravers Fantasy – Back in 81
Forever – Lunges in 34 (never done that one)
And they are both only just over 6 minutes.

Hey Glen, not sure whether this is a rumour circulating or whether this is Les Mills ‘law’ now but…… I’ve recently heard that we should only be teaching tracks released within the last 10 releases. Do you know anything about this? Admittedly, I heard this through a BodyAttack forum but wondered a) if you had heard of it and b) if it does, does it apply to all LM programs? Thanks

Hi Gavin, some instructors at actual Les Mills gyms here have been given that as a guideline however it’s only a guideline and in fact there are some instructors at lm Auckland that only teach really really old tracks. So no definitely not a ‘law’

Glad to hear it is a guideline and not ‘law’! The old cheesy ones are always good to break out every now and again!

Gavin, I’ve been told that too in my quarterly workshops from time-to-time. While there are a heap of older tracks that are very slow now compared to the new(er) stuff, I think there are also many older tracks that have stood the test of time and are still relevant and work participants hard. In Attack, I usually apply the 3D approach to the older stuff to make the workout more relevant to where it is today. But heck, I’ll bring out “Hairspray” and go the whole “cheese” factor if participants demand it 🙂

*dies at Hairspray* 😉

Haha glen! I can only teach it at one gym (has their PPCA license), but still have to ration it otherwise participants request it every single week. Same with “The Black Pearl”. I finally succumbed to participant pressure and taught it last week. I don’t think it’s the workout they like, I think it’s because I teach the entire track in “Pirate-speak”. Dear God, I created a monster!

My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (cooldown from #57) is the new shortest!

The core conditioning track from the same release is apparently the shortest as well.

Have your say!
