Les Mills Body Pump class starts by gathering the equipment you need to complete the workout. This includes weight plates of various sizes, a bar, a benchtop, and hand weights. During the hour-long class, the instructor will play energetic, popular music. Each track is devoted to working out a particular muscle group, as listed above. There will be time between each track for you to change the weight on your bar according to the directions provided by your instructor. Your instructor will also inform you what equipment to use for each track, demonstrate the movements, and cue you when to use them. It helps if you choose a spot where you can clearly see the instructor.
The amount of weight you use varies for each track. The heaviest is the leg track, followed by the back track.
