Yep it’s LAUNCH weel which means at Golds Gym we launched the latest Les Mills releases. BodyPump 89 and CXworx 14 will be on FIRE for the next two weeks! I have to say that this is probably not my favorite release. I think it’s going to have to be one of those classes you DO a few times before it grows on you. I will say that it was easy to learn though 😉 The playlist is below, and the full tracklist is available on iTunes.
BodyPump was pretty easy to learn. I LOVE the shoulder track! Seriously! And triceps. Those two are my favorite. I also like the stretch track. Which is new for me. I think it’s because it’s a current song and just something that’s on my playlist right now anyway. Have you done the new bodypump release? What was your favorite thing? I know a lot of people are liking the back track. Nice switch up with the plate squat, gets the body sweating!
Cxworx was a bit hit and miss for me this release. If you’ve done it tell me your thoughts. I kinda want to like the warm up but it just doesn’t ‘click’ for me. I love the song though! Track 2 I do like, I like the progressions and modifications. Track 3… not a fan. I don’t like the L-press. I’ve yet to see one class member do it correctly. Actually I dropped the band altogether at launch it was so bad. People were getting frustrated. There is just not enough time to set this move up and offer the modifications, because BAM you’re moving onto the next exercise! Track 4 I kinda liked. Track 5 was kinda boring for me and though I liked track 6 I’m not a fan of the moves. I like the rows but people just take the easy option for a single tubing row. Again this playlist is available on iTunes.
