Why do we stretch after the shoulder track in Bodypump?

Stretches need to be held for at least 15 seconds each side that you stretch.

Ballistic Stretching is discouraged in Bodypump IMO! and Static Stretching is the perfered stretch in Bodypump. IMO!

If pain persists then stop the stretch.

In Bodypump we move from track 7 to track 8 we stretch the quads the hamstrings and lover back. This is mandatory and important to do so.

We then commence the shoulder track - by the time the track ends we pretty much have fatigued the shoudlers and pre-exhaust the muscle groups involved. We need to re-align the fibers and stretch out prior to the commencement of the ab track.

Rotator Cuff - deltoid - pectorals major and minor are sometimes worked when we do pushups, the majority of the exercise is shoulders and arms.

Rotator Cuff injuries and shoulder impingement is a major issue in doing exercising the shoulders and arms. We need to stretch the muscles and exercise effectively while doing Bodypump.

In saying this why stretch after this track before going into abs we need to stretch the Posterior Deltoid - Upper Traps - Teres Major - Latissimus Dorsi - Lower Rhomboids - Infraspinatus.


You need to stretch out the body also by doing trunk rotation before coming into the abs track. A few chosen stretches prior to the commencement of the abs track in Bodypump will make the workout safe and effective.

Please do your stretches prior to the next track in Bodypump :)

IMO!
