Sorry for the delay in these – rolling out now (as well as my GFX post – bit delayed sorry – with new releases here next week things are crazy!) Note there’s one doing the rounds at the moment (don’t ask me who circulated it) and it’s wrong. Correct one follows. More to come.

BODYPUMP 76 sizzler

The pop divas of BODYPUMP® may seem a little flirty, but don’t be fooled – this release packs a punch with a solid workout that targets small muscle groups, while bombarding the bigger ones with short sharp shocks of intensity.

A feature is the use of big weights and compound exercises at the front end of tracks to lift intensity.

The warm-up helps you Climb into your work by preparing you for what’s to come, setting up the 1/3 rhythm that comes back to haunt in the very next track – Squats.

Another of those big muscle groups – the chest – gets the treatment in Track 3, really stressing the Singles and Bottom Half Presses. Then we get the fire started with Pyromania, attacking the back with a double shot of power and strength – two Clean & Presses/two Deadrows.

Track 5 is the highlight of the release, Your First Kiss was never like this, but the song’s playfulness can’t disguise the punch you feel as an opening series of Dips softens up the triceps for a circuit of Pushups and Kickbacks, then closing Overhead Presses.

It’s all on, now! The smaller muscles are getting bullied and it’s the biceps’ turn to suffer, courtesy of a new and nasty combo – Mid-Range Pulse, followed by Single Curls.

Youch!

Then, you unleash the perfect Storm on your legs, surprising them with heavy–loaded Squats so they’re burning by the time the lunges hit home. Go to new depths on the lunges with the bench option.

BODYPUMP® 75 highlighted the “pec dec” shoulder track and you learn another new move this time – a Reverse Fly that tests the rear deltoids, trapezius, the rhombus and smaller shoulder muscles.

Finally, you will need every ounce of strength left for a Hover with Pointer that rocks you to the core.

Next morning, this workout will hurt so good!

These have also hit the net/facebook so should be fine to post here. Very similar in style to last quarter’s .

Loving what appears to be a moustache on Chris’s face on the RPM poster??! 😉

Enjoy…

This is the BIG ONE! November 2010 sees the GFX – if you don’t know what the GFX is it’s a Group Fitness Xtravaganza where all the DVD filming classes, workshops and special training sessions are combined into one huge weekend which finishes in a MASSIVE party! The last one (in May last year) was absolutely crazy and this one is looking to be even bigger!

I’ve listed the filming times below – but all the workshop times are listed in the graphic as well if you are interested (click to enlarge). We’ve already booked our accommodation (right across the road from Les Mills – parking will be an issue I’d say and you also don’t want to be walking too far after doing 6 or 7 classes in one day that’s for sure!)

If you were to come to one event at Les Mills NZ – THIS would be it. You’ll need to contact Les Mills NZ to book in. If you are thinking of coming do let me know – and remember to make sure you turn up super early for each event. The queues last year were literally down the street an hour before the opening, and if you do come all the way to NZ to be there I’d hate for you to miss out! It’s officially less than two months away now so the countdown is on! I’ll see you there!

Friday November 5 2010

  • 8:10am BODYCOMBAT 47
  • 9:30 am BODYVIVE 18
  • 10:50am BODYATTACK 72
  • 1:30pm RPM 50

Saturday November 6 2010

  • 8:10am BODYPUMP 77
  • 9:30am BODYSTEP 83
  • 10:50am SH’BAM 3
  • 12:50pm BODYBALANCE 52
  • 1:50pm BODYJAM 56

Well I’m officially back in chilly NZ! Bit of a shock to the system after Dubai’s 45 degree temperatures (it’s winter here) but great to be home. Arrived in Friday evening and jumped straight into teaching combat Saturday morning (no rest for the wicked!)

Unfortunately as you may know my trip meant I missed the round of filmings just gone but all is not lost – I’ve had my “spies” report back and will post everything I’m allowed on BODYCOMBAT 46, BODYPUMP 76 and BODYATTACK 71. I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about BP76 and BA71 so really excited about those!

The workshop for the Q3 releases (BC45, BP75 and BA70 etc) is coming up next weekend here in NZ so I’ll have a lot more to write about regarding those releases too!
