Power Pump is a cardio strength class that utilizes barbells to perform resistance exercises and workouts; all completed to upbeat music mix tracks. Body pump classes are run by professional trainers and usually last around 45-60 minutes. They are fun yet rigorous workouts that raise heart rate, work every area of your body and cause serious calorie burn.
You will perform a 45-60 minute long workout with a class of people whilst timing repetitions to music mix tapes. Your Power Pump instructor will take you through a warm up with light weights initially to get you ready for the intense workout.
You then complete an intense muscle and cardio workout using a barbell. Each of the major muscle groups are worked in turn including chest, back, shoulders and abdominals. This ensures maximum calorie burn and toning as it hits every area of your body.
The tempo of the music finally slows down as you perform a cool down and complete stretches to reduce muscle soreness and risk of injury.
