Why Does It Work?
A recent study conducted by Sao Paolo University in Brazil studied the actual effectiveness of the BodyPump program on a group of sedentary women. The results were astounding. For the study, women participated in two BodyPump training sessions per week for 12 weeks. The study described, ‘Subjects reported no or little experience with weight training and no exercise training engagement in the six months preceding the study.’ Researchers wanted to quantify the neuromuscular, metabolic, and aerobic running fitness effects of BodyPump. Measurements were taken at the beginning for isotonic strength, incremental exhaustion, blood samples, heart rate, elecrtomyographic recordings and anthropometric assessments. At the conclusion of the study, the results showed improvement at increasing muscular strength, endurance and developing efficiency in movements and muscle activation.
What Do You Do?
The typical BodyPump class is 60 minutes in length and involves moderate to high intensity resistance training.
