After completing 8 days of Les Mills Pump home fitness program, I am pleasantly surprised at how simple but extremely effective this fitness program is. It’s simple because it takes basic weight training exercises – lunges, squats, chest press and shoulder exercises, add great music and A LOT of repetitions and you have an awesome workout that is a challenging and very effective.
After one week of Les Mills’ Pump, I am totally hooked on this fitness program and totally understand how this workout will get you lean and well defined muscle. For those of you who are familiar with Les Mills’ Bodypump classes that’s taught at the gym, you’re probably wondering if the home version lives up to the gym version of the Bodypump classes. You will be happy to know that it’s the SAME exact workout featuring Les Mills’ BodyPump top international trainers except you’re able to do it in the comfort of your home.
The Beachbody home version is called Les Mills Pump and it comes with everything you need to get started. When you purchase Pump from your Team Beachbody Coach you can choose between two different packages – Basic and Deluxe. There’s no extra equipment to buy. The Les Mills Pump basic kit includes 7 workout dvds, a padded barbell, two 5lb weight plates, two 10lb weight plates and two safety clips to hold your weights in place. The deluxe kit comes with everything in the basic kit plus you’ll receive three cardio workouts, a step platform with risers and two additional 5lb weight plates. With each kit you’ll also get a Fitness Guide, “Get Lean” Nutrition Guide and a tape measure and measurement tracker to track your results as you progress through the program.
Each of the exercises is taught as a track which coincides with the musical track designated for that exercise. For example, there is a squat track that will be taught by a trainer and that squat workout will be taught to a specific song or track. As the tempo of the track or music changes so does the squat count. You may start out with a 4 count squat which is four counts down and four counts up then 2 counts or singles as the music tempo changes. This is what triggers the REP EFFECT and helps you to burn calories and fat and build lean muscle. So you have to choose your weight carefully. You may think 5lbs is light but after you’re half way through a track you’ll be glad you chose a lighter weight.
