I’m loving the posters for BodyPump 82.
I can attest that this is not false advertising; I’ve seen amazing results in my arms and shoulders from doing BodyPump.
First off, let me clarify for any ladies out there who are scared of a little muscle, my arms only look like that when I’m flexing realllly hard. Most of the time (because as much as I’d love to, I actually don’t walk around flexing), they look like this:
But still, I’m always a little surprised every time I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror during class and see muscles that were never there before. In fact, my arms used to be a bit of a “problem area” and I used to hate wearing T-shirts and tank tops.
Anyway, onto the new release – I found this one a little easier than recent releases so I’m going to use the next few weeks as an opportunity to challenge myself with weights.
Some highlights from 82:
- the warm up is a little different than usual so be prepared to turn your brain on
- one arm elevated push ups in the chest track
- a new grip position for dead rows in the back track, which activates different muscles
- jump squats in the lunge track
- overhead presses in the shoulder track
The hardest track by far is the lunge track (love the music though!). I wanted to kill the instructors (and I mean that in the nicest way possible) when they told us there was a second round of those jump squats.
I love that every new release has something a little different – keeps the body guessing!
