10 Years

It has been 10 years since the release of the tracklists. I released all my tracklists December 2001. Up till then they were on my computer and that is where they stayed. Mid October 2001 I decided to launch my tracklists on the old domain I used to post to. 

Thanking everyone for their support and looking forward to the next 10 years.

Best of 2010 and Highlights of the Year

Highlight to me would be the following:

01.Out of the blue we had original music to the releases. Then from May 2010 we had 100% cover versions of the tracks. Love the cover versions of the releases, sad to see the originals go.

02. Exposed to some awesome cover music artists who now shape our version of Bodypump, very impressed with the cover artists :)

03. Biggest release of 2010 was Bodypump 76, the best release ever. Well maybe till this time next year and maybe Bodypump 80 could top Bodypump 76.

04. Favorite top 10 at the moment for 2010

01. The Climb - BP 76 PPCA Free
02. Watcha Say - BP 75 PPCA Free
03. Beautiful Day - BP 76 PPCA Free

BODYPUMP® 76 PPCA FREE THE BEST RELEASE OF 2010

Been with Bodypump for over 12-years now. I thought you could not get better than what we have had in the past.

This is an awesome release. Love the whole feel of this release. I thought I would hate that we don't have original artists in the release. I was wrong, the programme is getting stronger and stronger, and I look forward to what we have in stall for 2011. The magic of this we don't know any of the artists, we know the songs and look forward to hearing who is the new cover artists on the releases. It is amazing to hear a track from someone that I have never heard before. That brings to the whole release something special that we have music and artists you won't hear on commercial radio. 

Coming soon, a review of this massive release called "Bodypump 76 - PPCA Free"

BODYPUMP® 76 FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Les Mills International


The workshop for this release was on Saturday. What is remarkable is that they used the PPCA Free version of Bodypump 76. 

I thought releases 74 and 75 were outstanding, well Bodypump 76 has raised the bar. Techically, it is the most perfect release of Bodypump ever. There is nothing wrong, or anything out of place in this release. I am going on what we have the PPCA Free version of Bodypump. 

It is one awesome release, I will do a full review soon.

This is one release, how can Glen top this one?

BODYPUMP® 76 PPCA FREE SIZZLER


The pop divas of BODYPUMP® may seem a little flirty, but don’t be fooled – this release packs a punch with a solid workout that targets small muscle groups, while bombarding the bigger ones with short sharp shocks of intensity.
A feature is the use of big weights and compound exercises at the front end of tracks to lift intensity.
The warm-up helps you Climb into your work by preparing you for what’s to come, setting up the 1/3 rhythm that comes back to haunt in the very next track – Squats.
Another of those big muscle groups – the chest – gets the treatment in Track 3, really stressing the Singles and Bottom Half Presses. Then we get the fire started with Pyromania, attacking the back with a double shot of power and strength – two Clean & Presses/two Deadrows.
Track 5 is the highlight of the release, Your First Kiss was never like this, but the song’s playfulness can’t disguise the punch you feel as an opening series of Dips softens up the triceps for a circuit of Pushups and Kickbacks, then closing Overhead Presses.
It’s all on, now! The smaller muscles are getting bullied and it’s the biceps’ turn to suffer, courtesy of a new and nasty combo – Mid-Range Pulse, followed by Single Curls.
Youch!
Then, you unleash the perfect Storm on your legs, surprising them with heavy–loaded Squats so they’re burning by the time the lunges hit home. Go to new depths on the lunges with the bench option.
BODYPUMP® 75 highlighted the “pec dec” shoulder track and you learn another new move this time – a Reverse Fly that tests the rear deltoids, trapezius, the rhombus and smaller shoulder muscles.
Finally, you will need every ounce of strength left for a Hover with Pointer that rocks you to the core.
Next morning, this workout will hurt so good!

All I Wanted - DJ Reflex - Best of PPCA Free Release 1

This is track 8 from the Best of Bodypump series PPCA Free. I love this cover version from this release. Very well covered and re-orchestrated.

BODYPUMP® PPCA Best of PPCA Free Release 1


Coming this weekend a review of the Best of Bodypump CD which is PPCA Free.Overall I liked the release. Track 4 is a bit getting used to with a frame reference back to the song by "Cascada" and the original by "Keith Urban" so this is a cover of a cover of an original track. 


I am impressed with this release. Track 6 is a standout track by Hiroshi Free.

BODYPUMP® Best of PPCA Free Release 1


Les Mills Asia Pacific has issued a Best of CD for instructors in Austrlaia instructing in Bodypump.

The CD is compilation of the best of in the 60's and 70's period of Bodypump. 

Release Information can be located in the tracklist section of this blogger.

BODYPUMP® PPCA Release 75 Error in Choreography Notes

There are two errors in the release notes for Bodypump 75 for Australian Instructors if you require the updated notes please contact LMAP and ask them for the correction to the PPCA release of track 6 06. Cowboy Casanova - Carla Cross. Although, if you don't look at the time and just cover the time up and learn the track the old way without timing then you can learn the track easily.
 
There is also a timing issue with track 1 it the time on the side of the notes is out 12 seconds. If you cover up the timing then the issue with the 12 second gap is not noticeable when learning the release.

The amended chore notes for track 6 have been written by Tommy K who is the Training Manager for Les Mills Asia Pacific. If you e-mail Les Mills Asia Pacific they will send you the amended notes.

BODYPUMP 75 ® SIZZLER (NEW RELEASE!)

BODYPUMP® fans are already describing the shoulder track on this release as the toughest ever and who would argue? The opening track – Fever serves as a preview of the carnage to come, as you find the perfect SET position over the punchy big beats. Game on! Track 2 engages the legs with heavy Squats and sets the tone for the rest of the workout, with a barrage on the upper body and a chest section that lays down a challenge – Press-Ups off an elevated platform. The first new element arrives in Track 4 – a wider lift grip for Rows that has you feeling the intensity build-up behind the shoulders – then go slightly heavier than usual to target the triceps, culminating with One-Arm Kickbacks for best isolation. 


In Track 6, Susan Renata straps on her spurs and holsters, and has some fun riding the range, while working the “guns” to Cowboy Casanova, the real showpiece of this release.

But the levity doesn't last long. Track 8 gives the shoulders a hammering with the new Rotator Pec Dec move... BECAUSE WE NEED MORE HARDCORE! Then it's time for yet another innovation – wider feet set in the Hover position to stabilize and challenge the core as you walk the hands, one by one, to Press-Up width and back. By the time you warm down, your body will be confirming what those fans already knew.
