Day 143: Rainy Monday Body Pump Madness
Good morning 🙂
Ok…It was rainy, there was body pump, but It wasn’t really all that mad, unless you consider going out on a rainy, foggy night at 8:15pm to lift stuff up and put it down again in time to music as mad…
I will leave that up to you…
Anyhow, that was yesterday, I set out intrepidly through the fog and rain to attend my body pump class (ok…it is actually only 5 mins down the road but shhh!)
Body pump, was, well…body pump, I am getting used to this release now, I am getting better at lunges but still not happy with them. But that is ok, it wouldn’t be as worthwhile if it were easy!
Now, I have spoken (gone one…) about the squats, and the lunges and the triceps, but one of the tracks I am least decided about in this release is the biceps track…I just can’t decide if I like it or not. I normally quite like the bicep track, don’t know why but I do, but this time I am not so sure.
The bicep track in this release is all done with dumbells, which is not in its self a bad thing, but it does present me with my first problem… The only dumbells available in the body pump room at the gym are 1, 2 & 3 kg. I started with the 3kg dumbells, so I have nowhere to go and it is reaching the time where I am wanting to up my weights, but I can’t which mildly annoys me.
The track uses a combination of Hammer Curls (top picture) and turning bicep curls (bottom picture), both half way and full range. In theory this should present a greater range of exercises and movement than using the bar, but for some reason I just find this track dull. I find myself wanting it to be over, not because it is hard, but because I just don’t want to do any more hammer curls! If anyone out there does body pump, tell me what you think… am I the only one that thinks this?
Still..despite the dull biceps track, the workout was a good one 😀
