Day 297: Body Pump 89 Killer(s) bicep track

pump 89ok…I couldn’t help myself there sorry… terrible puns are the name of the game today!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the newest body pump release…the music for the bicep track is by The Killers 😀 it is also a killer track…but helped immensely by good music!

all in all I like then new release, I played it safe with my weights more or less because you never know what you should use until you have tried out the tracks, I took 2kg off my squat and chest and bicep weights but I added 5kg to my back weight.

ready to go :-D
ready to go 😀

This release does not have clean and presses in the back track so you can go heavy. I used 18 kg for the back track as opposed to the 13 or 15 kg I have been using… It has a new to body pump addition of the squat press using a plate mind you…however, I think this could be a problem because using a 5kg plate for a squat press is quite easy and two 5kg plates are too bulky to hold properly…I foresee myself dropping one on my head! I am sure we will come up with something…

the bicep track is crazy…the Killers is appropriate because it is hard work.. it has a whole new combo in it which hurt my brain! Or possibly I was to busy singing along to the music to listen to Sarah properly…

All in all it is a good release, and it is (nearly) always nice to have a change 😀

Day 297 Complete 😀

  1. Need to get back to my BodyPump soon. between sickness and travel it’s been forever. They were doing a mash-up of different tracks from different releases those last two times I went earlier in the month – so I never did get to see what the last release was all about (the one you complained about triceps on). I’ll definitely hit in time for release 89.


    1. well…you missed out on about 1 million (no I am not exaggerating) tricep presses :-S

      this one has (as I have mentioned) killer biceps and the tricep track is hard too but I never thought I would welcome tricep dips :-S

      definitely get back once you are better 😀

      Mind you I like the ones where they pick random tracks from past releases it keeps things interesting 🙂


      1. some of the ones I have been to in the past do that, but sarah is still pretty new to teaching body pump, I think this is only her fourth release (possibly third full releases cycle) and doesn’t know enough tracks to do that yet…


      2. do it!!

        I could go do it now, because (in the UK at least) you have to have level 2 gym instructor or level 2 exercise to music before they will let you go to do the les mills training…but there is a chance that Les mills place will put you through the relevent stuff ;-D I might do it once I have done all my current course 🙂

        you should do it!


      3. I just need to be in one place long enough, and generally I am not.

        I’m less interested in teaching an actual class and more interested in getting the cert so I have access to the tracks/releases so I can do my own BP training when I’m away from the gym. 🙂


      4. DVDs won’t work as I don’t have a bar and plates at home. 🙂

        Need to be able to conduct my own one-person class at the gym at my condo in Vegas. 🙂


      5. this is true! Tuesdays have a lot to answer for…

        although it is a pretty awesome tuesday! I deadlifted 70kg this morning and got a pb in deadlift, straight leg deadlift, squat, clean and almost row!

        whic is a total spoiler fro tomorrow blog but I am excited…

        also many many body pump dvds are available on ebay and bars and plate kits are on there and amazon for quite reasonable prices 🙂


  2. I’ve never tried body pump. Always thought it would be good to add to my exercise routine but my gym doesn’t have a daytime class on the days I’m not at work and I can’t go in the evenings. Maybe one day.
