For the BODYPUMP launch there were actually 2 launches for this class, one on Saturday and one in my class on Sunday, since all the classes over the weekend were launch classes. Tim was supposed to launch with me, but I got a call on Friday asking if I could do it on my own, since Tim had been hit by a car while riding his bike. He’s ok apparently, but a bit bruised and shaken up.
So I had to learn the entire release on my own. I actually quite like this release, although a few of the tracks musically are not my favourite tracks. But nothing particularly offensive.
The warmup is a pretty standard warmup, but squats is awesome. They’ve really done some different stuff with the chorrey in track 2 and 3 and gone away from the standard 2/2, 3/1, 1/1, 4/4 type format. Makes it a bit interesting as an instructor, although slightly harder to learn. Track 4 is a pretty standard back track, although I love the fact they’ve used an awesome track from attack. Triceps and biceps are ok, although not favs, lunges a pretty good track without being too easy or too hard. It’s good to see the MAC raise back again for shoulders and Stronger is bloody awesome! I love this song (it’s actually the ringtone on my phone) and the chorrey is fantastic……lots of hovers and not too many useless crunches. The cooldown……….meh.
Overall a good release and although things have been hectic lately it’s fantastic to have some fresh chorrey and music again!
