Using hand weights in the shoulder track I say a big NO!

Bodypump is a plates and bar class the main attraction of Bodypump is the usage of plates in certain parts of the class, shoulders, sometimes in track 3 and 5 for example.

If you use dumbells the muscle activation points for the exercise neglate and change in muscle recruitment. Using dumbells works a small portion of the shoulders so it should be avoided. Using the plates activates more muscle recruitment and should be always the prefered method of doing shoulder work - and additional work involving plates in Bodypump.

Uisng dumbells should be only done in Personal Training or Gym Instruction under their guidance.

IMO!
