30-MINUTE FORMAT

From L-R: Emma Vandenburgh, Alex Veret, Glen Ostergaard, Diana Archer Mills, Hiroshi Asakawa

Welcome to your workout. BODYPUMP 96 is gonna make you really sweat! This round, I focused on bringing back the fun to pump with great music and feel – after all, we’re not training for the Olympics!

Have fun teaching this release. Let the music drive the workout and remember that your job is just to handle the reins.

There are lots of standout feels throughout this release. My favorites are Tracks 3, 5 and 7. Woohoo!

Glen

But the real work is hidden behind the fun – as always, we’re creating muscle tension to tone, strengthen and burn calories. We are inter-setting combinations that explore the musical feel and put muscles under tension, and the focus is on high-intensity interval training and continuous tension training.

SQUAT STUDY

THE SCIENCE OF THE REP EFFECT™ The fitness industry is constantly searching for training methods that will burn the most amount of calories in the shortest time possible. When it comes to resistance training, what is the best approach to maximizing caloric expenditure? THE REP EFFECT We know that lifting weights is one of the fastest ways to burn calories and create lean muscle. LES MILLS BODYPUMP is based on the principle that lifting lighter weights for a high number of repetitions will create the same workload as the more traditional approach of lifting heavy weights for fewer reps. The high number of repetitions generates muscular fatigue to tone and strengthen the body and burn calories. We call this THE REP EFFECT. One of the most important factors that affects calorie expenditure is the activity of large muscle groups. Let’s consider the Squat. The effort required to perform this exercise is influenced by two variables: the load we are lifting, and how fast we are lifting it or the total distance we move in a specific time interval. So what causes the greatest energy output – slow or fast contractions? Or – in BODYPUMP language – a slow 4/4 tempo, or the faster Singles? Previous studies have conflicting answers to this question. The argument for using slow contractions is that you spend more time controlling the movement – therefore reaching fatigue more quickly. On the opposing side, the support for using fast contractions is based on the recruitment of inefficient fast-twitch muscle fibers, which requires more energy.

BODYPUMP 96

The existing disagreement between training methods led us to put weight and speed in BODYPUMP Squats to the test, as outlined below. We took 15 participants, between the ages of 18 and 40 years, and had them perform four separate Squat conditions in a random order. Each condition was devised to produce the same amount of work for 4 minutes. Here’s how the four conditions looked: [WORK = LOAD ON BAR x NUMBER OF REPETITIONS IN 4 MINUTES] • Condition #1: 5 kg (11 lb) lifted at a contraction speed of 1 second = 120 repetitions • Condition #2: 10 kg (22 lb) lifted at a speed of one contraction every 2 seconds = 60 repetitions • Condition #3: 15 kg (33 lb) lifted at a speed of 3 seconds = 40 repetitions • Condition #4: 20 kg (44 lb) lifted at a speed of 4 seconds = 30 repetitions altogether The key factor to consider with each of these four conditions is the fact that the amount of work done in each of them was exactly the same.

You can see this in the following simple formula: work equals force times distance – which, in this case, was weight multiplied by speed. WORK = FORCE x DISTANCE #1 WORK = 5KG x 120 REP = 600 #2 WORK = 10KG x 60 REP = 600 #3 WORK = 15KG x 40 REP = 600 #4 WORK = 20KG x 30 REP = 600 The work output was exactly the same in each of the four conditions, allowing us to compare the calorie expenditure values. The results proved conclusively that the faster tempos burned the most calories. Despite the fact that they were lifting a smaller weight, participants expended 29.3% more energy during the 5 kg conditions with faster repetitions compared to the 20 kg condition with a slower tempo. In other words, it’s the speed of the movement that generates the greatest energy expenditure – not the weight of the load.

It’s likely that the higher rate of energy expenditure, despite the lighter loads, is due to the recruitment of faster-acting muscle fibers. Simply put, we burn the most calories when we lift a lighter weight for faster repetitions. To get the best from BODYPUMP, you need to keep the fast tempo AND increase your weights. Once you have achieved a base training level, increasing your weights progressively will really maximize the amazing results this program has to offer. So there you have it – proof that BODYPUMP truly is the ultimate calorie-burning workout as we complete over 800 reps in every class!

THE ART OF CONNECTION: PART 2 Without connection, we don’t have group fitness. We want our participants to have a fitness experience in our classes, not just attend another workout. To create these experiences our members need to feel connected to the music, to the workout, and to YOU. There are multiple ways that you can create this connection in your classes, so we decided to ask some of our top instructors around the world how they connect with their participants. Here’s what they said… Talk to people before the class starts. Get to the studio early and make time to chat to your members. Learn a bit about them. Get to know your members in class and find out what their fitness goals are. Then, when you see them achieving those goals (for example, completing a full Pushup on their toes), acknowledge and congratulate them! Welcome your new people. Smile at them, reassure them that you’re going to look after them, and offer SMARTSTART as a fantastic way to build up their fitness gradually. Explain what’s involved; for example, in a BODYPUMP class, you can help them set up their equipment and advise on weight selection.

BODYPUMP 96

Learn their names and use them during class. Be real. Be yourself when you’re on stage – don't put on a big instructor act! Think of your class as though you’re hanging out with your best friends; it’ll make it so much easier to create a natural connection with people. Make eye contact and use praise. Acknowledge and congratulate them on their efforts during and at the end of each class! Ask for feedback and offer to help with any questions after class. Allow time at the end of the class to answer questions and perhaps offer tips that can help them with their training. It’s all about experimenting to find what works for you. Be brave enough to try these tools in your next few classes to create meaningful connections with your members. You won’t believe the difference these will make!

BODYPUMP COACHING HEY INSTRUCTORS! We’ve made some key changes to the way we train new instructors and we want to make sure we keep YOU in the loop! Here’s what you need to know to make sure you're making your new person feel successful, as well as offering a challenge to your regulars in the front row… LAYER 1 We always begin with a great Track Introduction that highlights the Track Focus. It’s the Track Focus that defines how you should coach each particular track. The main change is that we have split the Setup into two phases: Position Setup and Execution Setup. Position Setup Position Setup establishes the alignment of the joints and the muscle activation. For example, to set up the Squat, we say: “Heels just outside hip-width, turn the toes out slightly, belly in and braced, lift the chest". Execution Setup The Execution Setup tells us HOW to do the move; so, in the Squat, we cue: “Sit your hips back and down, knees move forward in line with toes, hips stop just above your knee level”. We also use NETT (or Name of the Exercise, Timing and Target) as a way of remembering how to coach the choreography throughout the track simply.

BODYPUMP 96

LAYER 2 Layer 2 is where we ‘get into the workout’ and there’s no major change here. It’s still the time to coach our members to improve their execution, manipulate intensity, and to educate them. For example, if our focus is to increase glute activation in the Squats track, we can: improve execution by coaching “knees out to fire the glutes”; manipulate intensity by coaching “sit your hips back further and hit full range every rep”; and educate them that “now your glutes are firing, and this is how we get the results”. Remember – you can’t include EVERYTHING. Pick one or two things to focus on and have the confidence to stay with this. Commit to your focus and repeat it so people are actually learning something. The key to this phase is to not clutter it. Have one focus and let it land. LAYER 3 Layer 3 is where we’ve made the biggest changes to our coaching. We’ve redefined how we motivate people in class by mixing up the types of cues that we use. We have a choice of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, positive motivators and dissatisfaction (or challenging) cues. Intrinsic Motivational Cues are based on internal feelings of satisfaction; cues like “push these last few Lunges now and you’ll be buzzing for the rest of the day”… or just expressing the sense of enjoyment you get from training. Extrinsic Motivational Cues focus on the external recognition of improvements. For example, “get deeper in your Squats to tone and shape your butt” and “crunch up a little higher to flatten your stomach and shape your six-pack”.

When the going gets tough some people need to hear positive motivators: “you’ve got this, you can do this, there are only 4 more, you guys are looking great!” Others – in particular our regulars – will work harder when someone is tough on them, using dissatisfaction or challenging cues like: “I know you’ve got more!”, or, in your Squats, “come on, you can all drop one inch lower". Remember, dissatisfaction cues work best when you have built a relationship with your participants, and we always approach our members from a place of respect and care.

Remember: Layer 1 is all about simplicity using Position and Execution Setup, and you’ll hear NETT used throughout the track. Layer 2 usually has a specific focus – so listen out for this and see how it’s been applied. And in Layer 3, you’ll hear a variety of different Motivational Cues – all designed to appeal to the different people in your classes. So when you watch this release, you’ll see all of these tools used in the tracks. Enjoy!

Using a variety of these tools will help you connect with more people and have greater variety in your coaching language.

BODYPUMP THE REP EFFECT THE REP EFFECT allows us to get all the benefits of resistance training without lifting heavy weights. It’s the key to developing long lean muscles, and it’s also getting rid of some of those weight-training myths. Unbelievably, findings from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention in the United States report that less than 20% of adults regularly do the recommended two resistance training sessions per week. The truth is you can develop toned, lean muscle without lifting heavy weights and getting bulky… that’s the Les Mills secret formula behind THE REP EFFECT. THE REP EFFECT is the reason Les Mills’ BODYPUMP is still the fastest way in the universe to get – and stay – in shape. It uses the effect of high repetitions with much less weight to fatigue the muscles – and it’s muscle fatigue, not muscle load, that tones and strengthens.

TRADITIONALLY, WE’VE ALWAYS KNOWN THAT HIGH-REP TRAINING IMPROVES STRENGTH

ENDURANCE, CREATING TONED MUSCLE WITHOUT BULK. High-rep training produces more protein synthesis in muscle (that’s how you create muscle tone) than traditional heavy weight training.(1) In your average BODYPUMP class, you perform around 800 repetitions in a single workout – more than four times as many as you would in a regular gym workout! And we separate the class into tracks, with every 70 to 100 reps per track focused on a different body part. So this achieves two types of fatigue – isolated fatigue of each track’s target muscle group and an accumulation of fatigue by the time you’ve finished the class. And if you want long lean muscles, fatigue is a good thing. The length of the class and the fact that your heart rate remains elevated, also means you get a cardiovascular workout so you’re burning fat at the same time you’re shaping and toning muscle – double the bang for your buck! Les Mills carefully designs each BODYPUMP track using things like tempo changes to fatigue the different fibers in your muscles in different ways. This maximizes THE REP EFFECT and it’s unique.

1. Burd N., Low-Load High Volume Resistance Exercise Stimulates Muscle Protein Synthesis More Than High-Load Low Volume Resistance Exercise in Young Men, PLoS One, August 2010, Volume 5, Issue 8, e12033 2. Wernbom M., Ischemic strength training: a low-load alternative to heavy resistance exercise? Scand J Med Sci Sports 2008: 18: 401–416 BODYPUMP 96

Some fibers work better with slow tempos and other fibers work better with faster tempos. By changing the pace up and down we’re not just keeping the workout interesting, we’re making sure we activate all the fiber types in your muscles. Then we use different ranges of motion – take Bottom Halves, where you’re sitting at the bottom of a Squat. They build pressure in the muscle by taking away the release you would normally get at the top of the movement. This is called occlusion training and it’s a great way to generate more fatigue with less load.(2) And recently we’ve added some propulsions into the Lunges track. Propulsions are an explosive movement using all your fast-twitch muscle fibers and they really push your heart rate up and burn fat.

SO BY THE END OF A BODYPUMP CLASS YOU’VE EXHAUSTED EVERY MUSCLE GROUP... AND ALL THE DIFFERENT FIBERS WITHIN EVERY MUSCLE GROUP... You’ve pushed your heart rate into a cardiovascular training zone, you’ve toned and strengthened, you’ve burned fat, and hopefully you’ve had some fun along the way. And that’s THE REP EFFECT. Tone not bulk. High reps not heavy weights. Encouraging not intimidating. Resistance training that anyone at any age and any level of fitness can do – enjoy – and see the effect.

Explain how your participants can feel the exercise more, or how they can improve their technique. Emphasis is on sitting the hips back further and pushing the knees wide to activate the glutes. Use cues that will help your class to stay in the workout as the intensity increases. • Sit your hips back further now • Knees push out more to fire the glutes • Push your knees out, open them wide • Feel the timing • Keep the chest open to keep the tension in the upper back • Push your heels into the floor to activate the glutes • Squeeze your glutes on the way up • Work the full range every rep • Brace abs tightly in the bottom of the range to support the lower back

Teach your class how to execute the WIDER Stance Squat: new move, new feel and coach the timing as this is where the intensity lies. Focus on strengthening the full posterior chain and bringing in the side glutes by pushing the feet apart as you rise. • Push the floor apart as you rise • Feel the difference in this stance • Try splitting the floor with your heels • Keep sitting back with the hips and feel the full tension in your legs Fatigue will be high at the end of this set, so motivate and drive your class to stay committed to the end. Use positive motivators to inspire your class to succeed.
 • 45 seconds to go – MORE! • Stay low and feel the tension everywhere • Use your muscles; we're almost there; let's finish all together

INTENSITY

Longer isometric holds, slower tempos, limited recovery... the combination of these variables ensures that intensity will hit fast and remain high throughout this track.

PERFORMANCE

There are no lyrics to this song so your voice becomes like the lyrics, working with the feel and emotion of the music. Keep contrasting your voice to match the musical feel. Remember: You are team-teaching with the music, so allow it to have a voice too!

PUMP FACT

Changing stance from Mid to Wide to Wider alters the muscle recruitment, which enables participants to maintain a higher level of intensity throughout the track. Another advantage is that this helps them to achieve full range in each block of work.

Coach Position and Execution Setup of the A-Press, using NETT to coach Tempo and Target Zones. • Plates face each other
 • Elbows – out, down, in, up
 • Capital 'A' shape
 • Elbows to top of bench
 • Brace abs and keep lower back towards the bench
 • Open chest


2 PUSHUP LAYER 1

Explain the Position Setup and how to execute the Pushup. • Hands wide on the bench • Brace your abs as you lower your chest to elbow level 
 • If you can, jump up on your toes • Combination – 4 Pulses and 1 slow Pushup 


Don’t let your class opt out of the workout when they are so close to the end. Use the external focus of the bench to help everybody maintain good technique. Keep intensity high by using positive cues, encouraging them to do their best. • Remember the option – if it gets tough, drop to your knees • Get up on your toes if you can; brace the core • Screw your palms into the bench to activate the lats • Drive the bench into the floor and push away strongly • Drive the bench further – you can do this!

PUMP FACT

'Driving the bench into the floor' focuses on an external outcome of the Press. This is known as an external cue and this type of coaching has been proven to increase muscle output.

3 A-PRESS LAYER 2/LAYER 3

Bring the focus to feeling the chest squeeze in the A-Press for muscle isolation. Drive them to continue working hard through great timing and range, especially in the combination when fatigue will be kicking in. • A-Press – fatigue is setting in; let's focus and stay with it • Hook into the feeling of the movement • Elbows wide at the base and narrow at the top • Squeeze chest on the way up and feel the isolation • Big muscular change coming • Focus, fast movements coming • Small Pulse – big change • Perfect timing and range creates the tension • Keep it coming – you’ve got this

2 FRONT PLATE SQUAT / SQUAT PLATE PRESS

LAYER 1

LAYER 1

Explain how to execute the moves using Position and Execution Setup and NETT cues. DEADROW • SET Position – elbows to the rear and maintain that tension between your shoulder blades • Bar to top of knees, belly, knees and stand • Elbows go straight back • Squeeze between your shoulder blades • Belly braced

Explain how to execute the Squat Plate Press.
 • Feet outside hip-width
 • Plate to collarbones
 • Elbows under plate
 • Squat – butt drops just above knee line for range
 • Knees track over toes
 • Chest up, abs braced • Push plate over head
 • Keep elbows slightly forward at the top

DEADLIFT • Hinge forward from the hips • Chest up, abs braced • Bar to top of the knees

LAYER 2

CLEAN & PRESS • Keep the bar close to the body • Get under the bar, drive through the legs • Bend your knees to absorb the weight • Brace your abs as you push the bar above your head

3 DEADLIFT / CLEAN & PRESS / TRIPLE DEADROW

TRIPLE DEADROW • Elbows go straight back • Squeeze between your shoulder blades • Abs braced

LAYER 2

Once your class understands the basics, focus on improving the execution of each move. Explain how they can move the bar more efficiently to improve their technique and overall results. DEADLIFT • Try this: press down through your heels and feel the back of the legs engage • Feel the squeeze in between your shoulder blades as you rise • Press the bar into your thighs – set a powerful upper back for the Clean & Press CLEAN & PRESS • See how close my bar stays to my body – up and down • I want you to feel your bar touching your body TRIPLE DEADROW • Bend your knees even more for greater stability

• Let's hit the quads and the core • Your body is designed to do this – primal movement!

LAYER 3

People will be starting to fatigue. To reinforce good technique in the Deadlift, use strong Motivational Cues in this last set of the Clean & Press to focus your class on their personal goals. • Fatigue is starting to set in, so keep your chest lifted, belly braced and elbows back • One more set – party’s almost over • Let's Clean up • Keep that strong line – that’s how you get what you came for • Squeeze every last drop

4 FRONT PLATE SQUAT / SQUAT PLATE PRESS LAYER 2

Encourage your class to add more weight for the last set of Squat Plate Presses to achieve a metabolic kick. Focus on driving out of the floor to generate more effort from your class. • Feel the floor beneath your feet • 16 and we’re done • How much power are you driving out of the floor? • Use it, find it and tap into your power

LAYER 2/LAYER 3

Coach your class to achieve Position and Execution Setup using NETT. Focus on teaching the timing and the range of the Combination. • Open your knees, elbows forward • Chest lifted, abs braced • Elbows in • Plate right down to the back of the neck, full extension at the top • Keep the body still

2 SEATED TRICEP OVERHEAD EXTENSION / TRICEP DIP / TRICEP PUSHUP LAYER 1/LAYER 2

The first set is short, so reinforce timing and execution cues in the long set of extension work. Reinforce the timing of the combo so the class get the musical feel. The last set of Dips is where the class will need Layer 2 cues to improve execution as fatigue kicks in fast. What will you say to stop them checking out of the workout? TRICEP DIP • Option is for plate on lap • Hands shoulder-width apart • Fingers facing forward • Elbows facing the back of the room • Brace your abs • Chest lifted • Weight back in the arms • The options make it more achievable as the track gets tougher: butt on the bench and elbows to the rear anytime • Can you feel the tension. That tension creates change in the arms

Use Layer 2 cues to help the class experience greater intensity in the Pushups by coaching full range, timing and execution. The last set of Overhead Extensions is the perfect time to connect with your class and bring everyone home together. TRICEP PUSHUP • Remember the option on the knees • Place your firmly onto palms into the bench • Lock them, in to set your upper back • Elbows stay close to the body STANDING OVERHEAD TRICEP EXTENSION • Quick transition • Chest lifted, abs braced
 • Plate to the base of the neck • Extend the arms at the top • Elbows in and high
 • Sing it people!

INTENSITY

The fast transitions with no recovery ensure this is a challenging track. Pre-cueing each move early on and providing options will make sure that your participants stay in the workout and maintain the time under tension, especially in the combination.

PUMP FACT

Corkscrewing the hands into the bench in the Pushups engages the lats and scapular stabilizers. This creates a strong upper body position, making it easier to hold good form when fatigue sets in.

TRICEP PUSHUP • Quick transition • Hands on bench • Chest to elbow height
 • Elbows in and back • Option – knees on the floor • Brace your core

LAYER 2/LAYER 3

Create a clear setup of Target Zones, range and tempo. BICEP CURL • SET Position, feet under your hips • 3/1 Bicep Curl • Bend your knees • Lift up your chest, brace your abs • Bar stops in front of shoulders • Then all the way down to the thighs • Even weight in front and back legs to be stable MID-RANGE PULSE • Mid-Range Pulse – 3, 2, 1 and touch • Elbow height and 1 inch (2.5cm) up • Watch my bar – range is small and movement quick BICEP ROW/MID-RANGE PULSE • Step in, bar to knees, lift to ribs, back to knees, stand • Easy combination coming next • 1 quick Row, 3x Mid-Range Pulses – stay for 3

2 BICEP CURL / BICEP ROW MID-RANGE PULSE / LAYER 2 Use this set to focus on posture and elbow position so the class can feel the intensity and stay in the workout to get the results. Be sure to pre-cue the Shoulder Roll and reinforce the timing of the moves. BICEP CURL • Reset posture, lift chest and brace abs • Sink into your legs so you feel stable and strong when we move quickly

Fatigue will be starting to kick in, so remind your class of how to manipulate the intensity in all the exercises to achieve the results. The intensity will be felt in the Mid-Range Pulse so motivate them to enjoy that feeling! Use the last 30 seconds to hook into the groove, connecting the class to the music and their bodies. • Take a breath – we’ve got one more round, let's do this together • Squeeze bicep to lift the bar • Squeeze forearm onto the Bicep to feel the muscle engage deeper • We do it because that’s what we like • 30 seconds to go • What do you say? • Don’t stop – feel it • You can groove but you can't wobble; stand still and feel the work

PERFORMANCE

Match your voice and your delivery of the track to the energy of the song. Use the highs and lows of the music to create contrast in your vocals, and bring a fun attitude to the stage! Use the lyrics in the final set to bring everybody to the finish line.

PUMP FACT

BODYPUMP uses light weights and high reps to shape and tone muscles. Accumulating muscle pressure with repeated movements like the Mid-Range Pulse is one of the tools we use to achieve these benefits.

BICEP ROW/MID-RANGE PULSE • Lift elbow high to engage bicep and work harder • Think forearm to bicep • Check elbow is under shoulder to maintain load in the bicep • Body stays still, bar moves fast – so you feel the pump

LAYER 1

LAYER 1/LAYER 3

Coach the basic Layer 1 cues for good technique in the Lunge, establishing position and execution. Once everyone is moving well, focus on range and getting them to move up and down in the Pulses to maintain the position of the knee. Provide the option of putting the bar down anytime, to maintain great technique. • Back knee towards the floor • Front knee to 90 degrees • Hips and shoulders square to the front • Lift chest and brace your core • Front thigh parallel to the floor to engage the glutes • Focus on timing • Squeeze shoulder blades together to improve posture • Push through the front heel to feel your glutes activate • 7x Bottom Half Pulses • Remember: down and up, not forward and back, to hold knee position • Pressure is starting to create change in the muscles • Perfect technique is needed,so you can put the bar down anytime

2 LUNGE LAYER 2/LAYER 3

Work on the other leg with timing and execution cues to get everyone moving well. Next, coach your class how they can improve execution and manipulate the intensity to work harder, to experience more muscle burn. Once you are through the Pulses, role-model strong technique to keep them in the effort. • Reset the posture – chest up, abs in and braced • Knee above the ankle to feel the quads • Knee out to feel the glutes • Perfect timing creates muscle tension • Stay low to work the butt – feel the pressure • Continuous tension – more time under tension creates faster change • Keep working, everyone

Cue Position and Execution Setup. Using NETT, coach good technique in the Squat – Temp, Target Zones and leg alignment. The class will not be expecting the last 2 sets of Pulses! Be the physical inspiration on stage and use the music to drive them to the finish line. • Heels outside shoulder-width • Turn the toes out slightly • Belly in and braced; lift the chest • Sit your hips back and down • Knees move forward, in line with toes • Hips stop just above your knee line • 7x Pulses, stand, reset • Continuous tension training, burning calories and shaping our bodies • Brace the abs tighter

INTENSITY

Range and timing are key to creating pressure in the legs; the Pulses create heat to shape and tone the legs. If you see members struggling, provide the option to put the bar or plate down during the track. It's important that everyone feels successful.

PUMP FACT

In the Lunges, maintaining a vertical up/down action, rather than a forward and back motion, is not only more effective for engaging the quads but it also reduces pressure in the back of the kneecap.

Coach position and execution setup cues using NETT to help with the timing of all three exercises KNEELING REAR DELTOID FLY • Kneeling position • One leg forward • Tip forward from the hips • Brace abs • Plates face inwards • Lean forward • Eyes 6.5m feet (2 meters) ahead • Elbows slightly bent • Finish with the plates under shoulder line • Squeeze between shoulder blades to lift your arms wide • Open the chest STANDING SIDE RAISE • Heels under hips • Elbows just below shoulder height • Chest lifted – abs braced ROTATOR RAISE • Elbows high • Upper body strong; lift the chest
 • Drop the shoulder blades down • Squeeze between shoulder blades as you rotate • Feel tension in your shoulders

2 OVERHEAD PRESS / PUSH PRESS LAYER 1

OVERHEAD PRESS Coach position and execution of the exercise and use good timing cues for the combination. Pre-cue the 8x 1/1 Push Press so nobody misses a rep. • Bar from chin to ceiling • Building static strength • Brace your core; keep your chest up • Push your front heel through the floor PUSH PRESS • Step in, Push Press • Use your legs • Brace your abs as you push the bar • Catch the bar high on the chest • Push the bar up in a vertical line • Bend your knees more

3 STANDING SIDE RAISE / ROTATOR RAISE LAYER 2/LAYER 3

Use this set to focus on timing, range and precision of movement to create isolation in the muscles.
You will need to motivate the class to stay with you as fatigue will be setting in – try using positive motivators, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation-type cues. • Anchor your body – set the feet by using the floor • Feel your shoulders working now • Elbows just under shoulder height for your range • Keep elbows high to isolate • Full range to isolate • Squeeze between shoulder blades to open • Don’t stop everybody – stay with us

4 OVERHEAD PRESS / PUSH PRESS LAYER 2/LAYER 3

Final big set! Fatigue will be high, so maximize the training effect by reinforcing strong body position. Use the music to motivate people through the effort and refer to the benefits of staying in the workout; use motivational voices that are big and intense. • Catch the bar • Single static push • Brace your core • Dynamic power push • This is full-body tension • Total body conditioning – legs, core, shoulders • Big push – yes! • Drive the bar to the ceiling • Push the floor away to drive the bar to the ceiling • Raise the bar high!

INTENSITY

This track is all about compound training with isolation work and short recoveries; both will increase intensity. Compound exercises involve multiple joints and muscles and the isolation work will shape and tone the shoulders. Short recoveries keep the intensity high, burning more calories, getting us stronger and leaner!

PUMP FACT

Keeping the chest up and shoulder blades slightly retracted has been proven to increase the strength in the rotator cuffs.

LAYER 1

LAYER 3

TRIPLE PULSE CRUNCH • Arms straight • Pulse 3, 2, 1 • Aim to keep plate above shoulders • Lift shoulders off the floor then rest them back down

PUMP FACT

Coach the Position and Execution Setup of the moves and provide options early on. PLATE CRUNCH • Plate to forehead • Up, up, down, down • Chin tucked in • Eye gaze in between knees • Slide ribs to hips

Your class will be feeling the burn of continuous tension training. Motivate participants to complete the last set and challenge them to press the plate higher for the last 8 reps. • Stamp your plate on the ceiling • Get extra height as you crunch and get a big stamp of approval

Keeping the chin tucked in during Crunches not only protects the neck, but it also conditions the deep stabilizing muscles in the neck, which protects our neck from injury when lifting weights.

2 PLATE CRUNCH / TRIPLE PULSE CRUNCH LAYER 2

Once the class have the basics, explain how to execute the exercise with more precision and how to manipulate the intensity, using cues that refer to muscle feeling. PLATE CRUNCH • Squeeze your six-pack to crunch higher and peel your shoulder blades off the floor • Keep the plate to forehead to maintain load in the core TRIPLE PULSE CRUNCH • Press the plate to the ceiling • See if you can relax your shoulders and squeeze your six-pack to press your plate higher

BODYPUMP TECHNIQUE COACHING CUES GLOSSARY SET POSITION

STANDING UPRIGHT ROW

• Heels under hips • Toes turned out slightly • Knees soft • Hands thumb-distance from thighs • Gently draw the belly in and brace the abs • Lift the chest • Lift the shoulders up, roll them back and draw the blades down towards the spine • Chin tucked in

• SET Position • Chest up – abs braced • Slight pinch between the shoulder blades

Position Setup

Position Setup

Execution Setup

• Lift bar up to lower chest • Elbows above the bar • Keep bar close to body

Layer 2

• Lead with the elbows • Squeeze between the shoulder blades

Overhand Grip

DEADLIFT Chest SET Position

Position Setup

• SET Position • Slight bend in the knees (20 degrees) • Chest up, abs braced • Elbows to rear – light pinch between the shoulder blades • Chin tucked in

Execution Setup

• Tip from the hips, keeping the chest lifted • Bar to knees • Chin tucked in – eyes forward, 6 feet (2 meters) in front

Layer 2

• Tension between shoulder blades all the way through • Squeeze your hamstrings and glutes on the way up • Heels grounded into the floor

BODYPUMP 96

Keeping the chest lifted and shoulder blades retracted places the shoulder blades in the optimal position to receive load. Lifting the bar no higher than the lower chest reduces the potential for shoulder impingement (compression of the shoulder tissues).

DEADROW

CLEAN & PRESS

• SET Position • Slight bend in the knees (20 degrees) • Chest up, abs braced • Elbows to rear – light pinch between the shoulder blades • Chin tucked in

• SET Position • Chest up – abs braced • Knees bent

Position Setup

Execution Setup

• Bar to the knees • Bar into the belly button • Squeeze between the shoulder blades

Layer 2

• Slide the bar up your thighs • Squeeze the shoulder blades together • Bend the legs for more stability and sit into the butt • Keep the shoulders away from the ears Emphasizing a squeeze between the shoulder blades will ensure that we engage the scapula retractors and reduces the tendency for participants to merely hinge backward from the shoulder joint during the Row. These muscles are key stabilizers of the shoulder and help prevent injuries.

Bottom Range

Position Setup

Execution Setup

• Start with more knee bend and use the legs to drive the bar up • Keep elbows above the bar during Upright Row phase • Bar close to the body, lift to lower chest • Drop under the bar, bending the knees • Clean the bar and hold in front of the collarbones • Press to the top • Use the legs to drive the bar up • Abs braced as you Press above the head • Elbows slightly forward • Bend the legs again, return to SET Position • Bring the elbows up and over to lower the bar

Layer 2

• Use the legs to drive the bar up • Lift your heels to initiate the move • Get under the bar as quickly as possible – be explosive! Using the legs to get under the bar is the key to minimizing the load on the shoulder muscles and generating the most power in the Clean & Press. Focusing on jumping under the bar and explosively driving the bar over head will increase metabolism and spike the heart rate.

Execution Setup

• Lift the elbows to just below shoulder level • Elbows slightly forward • Lead the movemenht with the elbows • Chin tucked in

Layer 2

• Keep the body still to isolate your shoulders • Shoulders away from the ears Option: To increase intensity, widen the angle at the elbow Keeping the elbows slightly forward ensures we lift the arms in the same plane as the scapula, helping us to engage the rotator cuff muscles evenly to protect the shoulders. Stopping the movement just below shoulder level reduces the potential for shoulder impingement (compression of the shoulder tissues).
