Ok, so I'm way excited. I'm in the best shape that I've been in about 5 years time (since I was in the military). And it's all because of one aerobics class that I found: BodyPUMP.
First of all, let me say that I was going to the gym every single day for the past 5 weeks straight. I got to a certain weight/body and could not go anywhere. I was running 20 minutes every single day; swimming 3 times a week and weightlifting. It had nothing to do with laziness that I was not getting results.
So I switched gyms last week. This new gym I go to had this BodyPUMP class, it is the entire reason why I switched.
Anyway, it's awesome. You squat, lunge, press and curl your way to a perfect body.
Anyway, I just wanted to share the love as I love this class.
It's on videotape somewhere, I think. Even if not, I recommend investing in a small barbell, weights, some fun music and doing lots of reps at low weight of the following:
Those last 2 are a real bitch.
