BODYPUMP 74 sizzler

Get ready for what may be our fiercest release yet. Right from Track 2, the hammer goes down and the intensity does not back off. Watch out for exciting new tempos and some killer supersets. Quick transitions and the shortest recoveries in the history of BODYPUMP mean your muscles are working from start to finish.

The massive energy and drive of This Is Who I Am sets the pace upfront. The new tempo challenges the legs, driving the heart rate up. We Weren’t Born To Follow and we prove it in Track 3 as the classic Rock sounds grounds the workout into the bench, bringing great muscle isolation to the chest.

Track 6 delivers a Boom Boom Pow to the biceps. This was a massive hit for the Black Eyed Peas originally – this one breaks the mold and you’re gonna love it!. We’re getting Dangerous in Track 7 with some Static Lunges followed straight up by some Dynamic Backward-Stepping Lunges for explosive glute training.

Track 9 brings the introduction of an exciting new move. The cool R&B sounds of this cruisy number creates massive contrast from the Shoulder Track. then, just in case you thought it was time to relax, there’s Walking Hovers to challenge even the strongest abdominals.

Okay, onto the good stuff! Actually, I should be saying on to the GREAT stuff as BODYPUMP 74 was un-fricken-believable!!! As you probably know by now I’m unable to write anything specific about the choreography or music after a filming class (back in the day when this blog only got a few dozen visitors a day I could get away with that – now with 3,000 – 5,000 visitors per day it’s kinda hard to do!) This of course presents a challenge – what can I write about when I’m bursting at the seams to share my experience but can’t write anything specific?? Well, it’s a challenge but let’s see how I do! 😉

The BODYPUMP 74 presenting team were Glen Ostergaard, Susan Renata and Karen Russell the Australian Master Trainer. Dressed in the latest official LM Clothing line they looked fantastic! (how lean was Susan!!??)

Stace & I before BP74 - the yellow shirt that got a bit of attention!

Before I start, here’s a wee tip if you do attend a LM filming class and did want to make it on the DVD – wear a bright colour! I’ve been attending LM filming classes for about 18 months and I’ve mentioned before I never go to the front because a lot of people fly half way around the world to attend these classes and I feel it’s only right they get the front row… after all I just drove up the road a couple hours! However I did wear a bright yellow Nike shirt (it’s usually my BODYATTACK outfit due to the colour) and the presenters seemed to like it as both Susan and Karen called me out because of it… Susan’s words were “that is one bright singlet!” – and Karen even said to the cameramen “make sure you get that guy in yellow on film!” – quite funny really. I have no idea if that will make it onto the final cut but if it does – yes the dude in yellow is me 🙂

Okay, onto the class itself… it was FANTASTIC. Let me say this, BP74 is h-a-r-d. After the lunge track I honestly felt like I was going to throw up. I looked down at my step mid way through the shoulder track and it was sopping wet! My clothes were soaked right through and more sweat was just pouring off me. It must’ve looked a sight! Of course, the beautiful thing about attending a class (as opposed to teaching) is that you can really smash yourself. I would never push myself as hard as I did that day if I was mic’ed up – I wouldn’t even have been able to cue I was gasping for breath so badly! I decided to do the same weights I normally do in a regular pump class that day… but – the only difference (and it is a big difference!) is that the bars at LM central are solid metal. They weigh about 7.5kg… possibly should’ve taken that into account (bit late now!). I was fortunate enough that my close friend Raina had warned me about the lunge track – it is a killer – so I did ease back the weight a little there (and still almost lost my lunch anyway!)

Now I have no idea if Glen reads the Les Mills’ community forums, but recently there’s been a thread on there entitled “BP choreography likes/dislikes“. As the name makes clear, in  it, instructors and participants are stating a whole heap of various things they’d like to see more of, and less of in BP. Now, if Glen doesn’t read the forum he’s clearly psychic as I couldn’t help but smile as I checked a whole bunch of the suggestions off one after the other in BP74. I probably can’t go into specifics, but, if you were one of the people suggesting a change in musical style (and tempo!) for the back track, simplicity in the warm up, a purer lunge track then you’re gonna love 74…

The most stand out factor in BP74 is the tempo and range changes in the chorey. I’ve only really experienced BODYPUMP for the last 3 years or so (I moduled on 69 but have learned most of the releases back to 60) and I’ve not seen any use of the tempos or ranges found in 74. They will really rock your world and I was super sore the next day!

I can’t say too much more other than be excited team – be really excited!!! I left the class just fizzing…. Let it be known that BODYPUMP 74 ROCKS! Pump pics follow (more on facebook too…):
