Saturday the new release of Body Pump came out. The class was packed, which is pretty normal for new releases, but I fully expect a lot of those present will "drop out" and not be present tonight or Thursday night. The ab set was killer and I fully expected it to be. To make matters worse, with some 25 of us cramped in a room, there was no room to maneuver. At least once I had to look out for overhead bars on the side of the room when I did the overhead presses. 25 in that room is just too many IMO. The new track for squats is a LOT longer than the ones previous. I'd say that this song is likely a full minute longer and there are a lot more "bottom halves" as well. I kept my weight the same as what I was doing in the old track but I couldn't do every single set (I missed one whole set). My friend here at work is also in this class and noted the same thing...the longer squat (and lunge) tracks. So, it leads me to ask the question: Is it more important to do the ENTIRE track, all sets, with lower weight than we were doing before on the old track, or is it better to do as many as possible at the higher weight and just not do all the sets if we can't stand it?
