Today marks the day that we at Gold’s Gym So Cal launch the new Les Mills quarterly releases. July 4th, independence day, BURN IT TO EARN IT! And this one definitely burns. In a regular BodyPump class we usually do 800 repetitions, in BodyPump 94 there are over 1000!!! Holy smokes, bring your A-game, grab your wheaties in the morning, and have extra too, because you are gonna need it! So let’s get into the playlist and dissect the tracks….

Warm Up: Heroes (We could be) – Alesso Feat. Tove Lo (iTunes>> / Amazon>>)
This one is a tricky track. Starts slow, very slow, but builds. The choreography is kinda fun, I like the power press in the warm up, a clue that the back track is gonna be hard. And warms up the shoulders nicely for all those overhead presses and push presses to come. I have to admit I’m not completely sold on this song as a warm up, it’s a little flat for me.
Squats: Everybody Go! – Vice (<<iTunes>> / <<Amazon>>)
1, 2, Everybody Go! Love this! Usually I’m not fond of the heavy techno style tracks but this one has great choreography and is just plain FUN! Great combo too, and with the right weight it gets tough to drive out of the “drop & stop”! I enjoy this squat track a lot. Reminds me of Antidote from BodyPump 85 which is probably still my all time favorite squat track.
Chest: Burnin’ Up – Jessie J Feat. 2 Chainz (<<iTunes>> /<< Amazon>>)
Ouch! The superset of two chest exercises (press and push up) makes this one a killer for the chest. What are you thoughts on the fast pulsing? Truth be told I don’t like the fast pulsing. It’s almost encouraging bouncing which I don’t like AT ALL. I love the song though!
Back: Today (Scooter Remix) – Scooter & Vassy (<<iTunes>> /<< Amazon>>)
Love this one! Probably one of my favorite back tracks. Aside from a warm up set of rows, three identical sets of power press and triple rows. What’s not to love? This one will be on my favorites rotation for sure!
Triceps: You’re Lips Are Movin – Meghan Trainor (<<iTunes>> / <<Amazon>>)
Fun peppy song to start working the arms. Dips, kickback rows and overhead extensions. It’s fun but didn’t really KILL my triceps like “Scream” or “Let It Roll” or heck even “Born This Way” which will always be a firm class favorite.
Biceps: Get Em Up – Nickelback (<<iTunes>> / <<Amazon>>)
Love the song, but again not a fan on the “pulsing”. I’m missing the older style bicep tracks where we loaded the bar, and the combo of half and full range. Not enough full range curls in this track for me, though it is a fun song that hooks you in.
Lunges: We Make it Bounce – Dillon Francis Feat Major Lazer & Stylo G (<<iTunes>> / <<Amazon>>)
At the risk of saying something I might regret or that gets me in trouble, this one I will simply say I’ll teach it for two weeks and it will be gone. I’ve already left my feedback on Les Mills and emailed them. Great song though.
Shoulders: This Is How It Goes – Zylent feat. Katatonic (not available – Les Mills music licensing track)
My BFF hates it, I love it. Supersets of push ups (with combo), upright rows, overhead press and push press. I much prefer this to the top half pulse upright row. Probably my favorite shoulder track in a long time. Simple choreo, fits the music and it’s a boulder burner! With no pulsing in sight 😉
Core: Baby Don’t Lie – Gwen Stefani (<<iTunes >>/ <<Amazon>>)
Initially I wasn’t sold on this song but the choreo really makes this one. I like the combo of simple weighted crunches and single leg glute bridges.
Cooldown: Only Love Can Hurt Like This – Paloma Faith (<<iTunes>> / <<Amazon>>)
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL song. I love Paloma Faith anyways and this initially seems out of place but the songs melody draws you in, and Paloma’s voice just grabs you. Usually I don’t like the slow songs, they kinda steal the pump of the class but this one is probably up there as a top 3 favorite cool down/stretch track.
Alt Chest: I Bet My Life – Imagine Dragons (<<iTunes>> / <<Amazon>>)
