Cardiovascular exercises work large muscle groups by performing continuous, repetitive activity. Cardio, or aerobic, conditioning occurs when your heart rate is raised between 50 and 85 percent of your maximum heart rate. Staying at this level for a period of time is what defines cardio endurance exercises. The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that cardiovascular workouts should be performed for at least 20 minutes, three to five days a week.
BODYPUMP™ is the original barbell class that strengthens your entire body. This 55-minute weight lifting class can be tailored from a beginning level to advanced level participant. Class participants use mostly a barbell to work through 10 tracks of music each targeting specific muscle groups such as legs, chest, back, arms, shoulders and abs. A highly motivational instructor will guide you through the class helping you with weight selection, correct form, proper technique and timing. You control the intensity of your workout by the amount of weight you place on the barbell.
After class, participants will feel energized from a great resistance and cardio workout. It typically takes a beginning participant 3 or 4 classes to get comfortable with the moves and to know what weights to be using on their bar. You’ll work all of your major muscle groups by using the best weight-room exercises like squats, presses, lifts and curls. Great music, awesome instructors and your choice of weight inspire you to get the results you came for – and fast! Like all of the LES MILLS™ programs, a new BODYPUMP™ class is released every three months with new music and choreography.
Important: Your muscles will feel a little sore after your first BODYPUMP™ class, but keep at it. It’ll get easier, we promise! After your first few classes we recommend a maximum of two to three classes a week. Remember, your body needs recovery time between workouts, so rest for at least one day between classes.
