Bodypump begins with a warm-up to get your body moving, increase your heart rate and to wake up your muscles, using lightest weights of the class. It usually is a preview of every move you will focus on throughout the entire workout.
Bodypump focuses on each of the major muscle groups involving all the important muscles for sculpting shoulders, defining biceps and triceps, building strong lean legs, firming glutes and tightening your core.
Choreography in each of these areas is specifically targeted to burn fat, burn calories and achieves significant fat loss. Bodypump structures around muscle fatigue to form strength without building bulk that result in long lean muscles and a toned strong figure!
The end of the routine is a cool down to stretch your muscles to finish the workout and assist with recovery. Cool down is definitely the portion where you can feel the hard work you have done in a 55 minute class.
Your muscles may feel a little sore after your first few Bodypump classes, but keep at it, your body will get used to it and it will get easier.
Exercise safely right from the start with good posture, always keep your knees slightly bent and perform movements smoothly.
Don’t overdo it with the weights, the point is to focus on low weights and high repetition to tone and strengthen. For me, I started with low weights, and gradually increased it based on how I felt.
Wear comfortable workout clothes and supportive shoes. I usually like wearing dri-fit clothes because this workout will get you sweating a lot!
Always have a water bottle while doing your workout to keep hydrated.
Your body needs rest so make sure to schedule in time for rest throughout the week.
Do at least 2-3 Bodypump sessions per week and combine them with 2-3 Cardio workouts for maximizing results.
I love Bodypump class. I have been taking this class for years at a local Boston Sports Club. I do bodypump 2-3 times and pair it with spin classes and other cardio routines. I love my instructors, they are great teachers and always make the class fun an entertaining. I think the results depend and vary per body type, but I am definitely seeing results. I always rant and rave about bodypump classes because they are fun and energetic! I recommend taking classes if you want to start working on building and tone your muscles!
