TWO SONGS FROM TRACK 2 BODYPUMP

Two songs are my alltime favorite Bodypump tracks they are:

The Race Captain Jack from Bodypump 36 and Over Overload V / Voodoo & Serano Bodypump 52.

They contain Are you Ready and I am getting Ready in the lyrics how random is that?

Not that I am reading too much into that :)

Pump Hard Train Hard or Go Home :)

1/4 THIS WEEKEND

Well it finally comes be still my beating heart. I get to do Bodypump 55.

The last workshop in the whole of South East Asia and Australia.

Hear tons of negative comments about BP 55. I find that a bit much to hear and really annoys me that Bodypump Instructors could be so negative about a release, they have not launched and that they have just got and the participants have not done (insert shock icon here!)

You have something we don't have, I really can't stand negative comments about Bodypump from Instructors who coach the program and pass on that negativity to the rest of us who have not done it.

I am excited to do the workshop and BP 55.

My review will be more postive.

Pump Hard Train Hard or Go Home :)

KELLY OSBOURNE IS BACK!

This is Kelly's second CD her first being Changes CD and it is not the same sound as her last CD. It is more Euro Pop and I guess more Punk-New Wave in style than any other of her release. Sleeping in the Nothing is the tile of her latest offering. The first single is One Word. The song reminds me of Fade to Grey by Visage a group of the late 70's and early 80's.

Kelly also has her own space, everyone has their ownspace these days, even myself I have my ownspace as well.

http://www.myspace.com/kellyosbourne

Was reading Tamis and Craigs Bodypump site about Bodypump 55

Link:

Bodypump 55 Review
CLICK HERE

I grew up as a teenager in the last part of the 70's and early part of the 80's and have fond memories of the music of that period. Groups like Toto, Chicago, Men at Work, Heart, The Smiths, Journey, Survivor, Rufus, The Gap Band, Kenny Loggins, Steve Perry, Reo Speedwagon, to name a few.

The music of generation x was awesome. I would like to see some the music of Generation X in Bodypump it would def rock.

Any comments?

What tracks would you like if you are gen x like me to see in Bodypump?

    ABC newsman Peter Jennings died today 8th August 2005.

    Peter will be sadly missed by myself and a whole generation of people who heard him on ABC America.His news reporting style and frankness in reporting was remarkable and he shaped my views of the world and shaped who I am today.

    BODYPUMP TECHNIQUE CLASSES

    In the last release of Bodypump Michael J McSweeney gave a lecture about Bodypump Technique classes. It was very inspiring to here from him and gain his insight into what is expected from people delivering his program Bodypump.

    Michael gave us a talk about the importance of Technique classes and doing these before commencing a Bodypump Class. I thought this was a great idea and should be done at all gyms providing Bodypump.

    It is a half an hour class where the Instructor goes through the vitals of Bodypump and goes through the major exercises of Bodypump.

    All Instructors of Bodypump have this handout. It should available at your local gym that holds Bodypump classes. If your gym does not have a technique class then maybe you should ask then to schedule one every week so that you know the exercises, what happens in a Bodypump Class and to visit the new exercises that are in the current release. If you do this then when you attend the class, you know what's going on, the exercises, class structure, and have knowledge of all the equipment in the class and what is safe and not safe in technique.

    So ask for a copy of the Bodypump Handout and ask for a Getting Started Brochure before starting the classes, this should be available at reception or the entrance of the Group Fitness Room of your Gym.

    Happy Lifting :)

    PREGNANCY IN BODYPUMP

    For those who are pregnant and in their first - second - third trimesters of pregnancy. People often ask if it is safe to do Bodypump while being pregnant.

    The answer is yes, but you need to obtain your doctors clearance before doing Bodypump. If you are new to exercise then this is vital before attending a Bodypump class.

    So what should I do before I attend a class if I know I am in trimesters 1 - 3?

    Easy, you need to talk to your Bodypump Instructor before the class commences. Or arrange a time that is mutually suitable to you and the Instructor to go over technique modifications in Bodypump. The Instructor should have a handout about Preganacy and Bodypump. It is a general handout and should be discussed with your doctor prior to doing a Bodypump Class.

    Modifications need to be done to all the perscribed exercises in Bodypump.If possible please speak to a Special Populations Trainer and they will advise you of what you need to observe while in trimester 1 - 3 of pregnancy.

    The final rule is to listen to your body.

    Advice in this section is a general and not specific, advise should be take with your Doctor and Health Care Provider and Family Health Practictioner. This is generalistic advice and should not be substituted for specific advice.
