I guess many of you are happy with this play list now 🙂

1. Warm Up:

The track starts with the presenters telling us to find THE FATIGUE in each and every track, how do you feel about that? It makes me thrilled!!

This is the coolest Warm Up track so far for me, Upright Rows and Dead Lifts combined is an amazing thing. Triple Dead Rows are there to heat you up for a cooking workout.

Right after single Clean & Presses, Squats come immediately, the transition is pretty short, I love it, it’s truly a good Warm Up. Same happens to Lunges. There is change here, we can see it, the Warm Up ends with Lunges 🙂

The music is amazing in terms of connecting with the crowds!

2. Squats:

Three Stances, Three Sets of work and more, and more and more muscles to activate!

You will notice in the recent releases that the sets are similar to each other in terms of Choreography, it’s not hard to memorize them anymore, which is great, set your mind free and focus on your efficiency.

I like Squat tracks which start with super slow tempo. It never gets easy here; Super Slow, Easy Singles, Down and Hold and Bottom Halves! Good luck out there cooking your new strong legs!

The song is popular, the remix might not be, but it’s powerful, once you push play you wouldn’t want to stop even if your legs started to fall apart!

3. Chest:

This is the hardest Chest track I’ve ever tried so far! It is, all of it, a stagger, not only the parts called stagger! CHEST PRESS ALL THE WAY. If your chest muscles are not that strong, I suggest you go light till it becomes easy, then you can increase the weights. I believe this needs you to activate the virtue of patience (lol :p)

4. Back:

Tell you what? WHY? haha okay,  this is pretty tough as well! Four Sets of work, lots of things to do!

We’ve got Dead Lifts, Dead Rows and Clean & Presses , which are back to us 🙂 in Set One and Two. Very neat and very well put, easy to follow and remember. The Recovery comes on time, as Set Three comes different and challenging; with its Dead Rows, Front Squats and Squat Presses. There are plenty of them there. During and after Set Three I doubt anyone would be able to breath normally. Set Four comes to finish us, because it’s a duplicate for Set Three! METABOLIC STRESS “to burn the most amount of calories” is waiting for you each and every time you choose to play this track. If I called the chest track a ‘Cooking Track”, I would call this one  a” Baking Track”.

I personally like this one!

5.Triceps:

How do you feel about your Triceps in general? Weak? Strong? You will figure your Triceps out right here, right now!

We did miss Extensions and Presses, didn’t we? And there are so many of them, soooooooo many!!! I don’t usually find Tricep Dips challenging, but after all these Presses and Extensions they are actually tough! But what else are we here for? To get stronger! And that’s why we love it!

Check the alternative track.

6. Biceps:

Miss Jackson is gonna haunt you till the next release comes out! You will be so addicted to this, soooo addicted! I do appreciate the fact that we do train our Biceps in different ways in BODYPUMP™. We don’t use the bars all the time, we don’t use the plates all the time either. They do care for us, don’t they? The Mid Range Plate Curl is actually a great way to feel the burn. Thank you BODYPUMP™ it never gets boring!

Check the alternative track.

7. Lunges:

Popular song, easier for all of us 🙂

Starting with a Wide Squat Stance is truly a gift; more muscles to recruit and engage. I wouldn’t say this track is the hardest, it comes for many of you out there as a chance to recover, if you feel this way go heavier. Instructors, please do give your member options, to go Body Weight if they find Lunges hard to do, or let them Squat instead, many people suffer knee problems, thank you! 🙂

8. Shoulders:

It always makes me excited to start Shoulders Tracks with Push Ups! Here you go, you’ve got 16 of them! And not only that, Push Ups come different this time at the end; as many as you can, as fast as you can! The MAX PUSHUP!

Up Right Rows followed by Over Head Presses is a typical combination, but it does work perfectly fine for your shoulders. Tempo here will be your challenger, as it goes in singles and in 1/1/2 as well. You did guess that you will have to Push Press here as well, I know! lol

Mac Raises are back as well! Here we have a double challenge: 1. Is to perform strong and beautiful Mac Raises, and 2. To teach our members to do that as well! I see members confused trying to perform them since they go in complete different directions.

What I like here the most: the difficulty level and the music! Lovely perfect choice!

Thank you for reading! And Have fun while making your body and mind stronger!
