LES MILLS PUMP is on sale now! This barbell - based rapid weight loss and accelerated strength- training program incinerates calories to help give you the ultimate, tight, toned, and lean body you want. Part of my "no gym required" work outs - is LES MILLS PUMP. This is a class that I have taken at my gym in the past. But now I own it and have the barbell with weights and cool little clips. Body Pump comes with 8 different workouts - all a little bit different then the next. Tempo is key therefore - music is critical. The music is pretty fun and of course - has a great beat. I must admit - I cranked up the volume - to get into "the zone."
The secret is THE REP EFFECT, which requires that you use lighter weights at a higher rate of repetition so you can burn up to 1000 calories per workout and get leaner faster. When working larger muscle groups - say the quads and hamstrings I put on 15 lbs. on both sides - but I probably could have added another 5 lbs. to both sides. The beauty of this work out is to bust out a lot of reps. - making sure to have good form.
The clean and press - which I have seen people perform at the gym - is a little intimidating - it's making sure you have the right weights and form. I think too - trying to remember your core - and keeping it stable is key.
My youngest son stated that after viewing this little video clip - that he too can do "clean and press" - I love that he said that. I think we as parents try to set good examples for our kids. We want them to be healthy and strong and to stay active. It's nice that I don't have to venture too far to "get it done."
