10 benefits of Body Pump
BodyPump is already 25 years old but it still is a trendy sport in 2016. The secret of such a success lies on its dynamic and entertaining classes which combine weight and aerobic. Moreover, you don’t need to be a great sportsman or sportswoman to try Body Pump, anyone can enjoy its benefits.
How is a Body Pump class?
Normally, a class lasts 60 minutes. However, there exist classes which are shorter. Exercises are done with music, which makes the class funny and dynamic. In every session, 10 catchy songs are played, 2 of them during warm-up. With each of them, we work different muscular groups: quadriceps, gluteus, chest, triceps… The entire body is working during a bodypump class, through flexions, squats, thrusts and cruches. That¡s why this sport is really complete!
Obviously, a stick and weight discuses are used to exercise each body part. This is the person who chooses himself/herself the weight according to his/her possibilities, needs and objectives. So it is very important to take care when you choose them in order not to take risks to force too much and have a lesion.
Muscular groups are always worked in the same order with a little variation in exercises. The powerful moves and the very short breaks give visible and very fast results.
