It’s been 3 months already?! Usually I’m ready for the new BP release, but this one snuck up on me. I’m guessing you all won’t see it until mid-summer in your clubs. Here is a sneak peak. If you aren’t a BP fan & could care less, you might at least get some work-out tunes below.
You’ve got Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, AND P!nk. That’s a whole lotta female pop for one release.
Like usual I am posting Youtube videos of the songs. I have a quick review of the music & sneak peak of the work for each track.
1. Warm-Up “I Cry” Flo Rida
Song: Fun, upbeat song. I liked last release’s warm-up song better though!
Work: Standard warm-up. Nothing new here.
2. Squats “In the Clear” Six60
Song: Starts really slow and the overall beat is slower than normal. BP claims it is dubstep? I don’t know about that.
Work: WHAT?! 6 and a 1/2 minutes! Longest squat work-out ever. You have bottom halves X 8. I probably don’t need to remind you: that will not feel good.
3. Chest “Your Body” Christina Aquilera
Song: I actually like this song a lot, I hadn’t heard it before. Does that make me super out of the current music loop? I think it’s going to be a fun one to teach :) Don’t let your kids watch this music video, or listen to the lyrics for that matter…
Work: New move guys! You use a bar for classic chest press OR 2 heavy weights for a chest fly! You get a break half way through, which makes your last couple of sets feel tough.
4. Back “Campione 2012″ DJ Flow
Couldn’t find a video that was anything close to this song, sorry!
Song: I feel like I’m at a European soccer game. Which reminds me I want to go to a pro game soon. Does Beckham still play for the LA Galaxy? Did he ever? I may have just made that up.
Work: You have a new move (which will help with your form a lot) and a lot of different combinations. You won’t get bored.
5. Triceps “50 Ways to Say Good-bye” Train
Song: Unless I’m really confused, I never would have thought this song was by Train. Maybe I’m just thinking of another band or something. The beat is really fast so better hope you don’t have a lot of singles.
Work: No new moves. No bar. A lot of dips! Yay. You all hate dips therefore I love using them :) Oh, and it’s a looong triceps song.
6. Biceps “Dark Side” Kelly Clarkson
Song: A lot of contrast in the music which is fun with all of the different tempos. Did I tell you my friend was in a Kelly Clarkson video (not this one)?
Work: Short & sweet. I’m not sure how hard it will feel yet. It might be a trickster.
7. Lunges “Don’t You Worry Child” Swedish House Mafia feat. John Martin
Song: It’s the original! This song was played a lot on my marathon play list so it has a special spot in my heart. I actually remember listening to it at about mile 24 when I was seriously questioning my lack of judgement in signing up for a marathon. I was also thinking about how good a Diet Coke would taste. I would have pulled out a sweaty $20 bill from my sports bra for a Diet Coke in that moment of weakness. Hopefully no one would have accepted said $20 bill. That’s gross.
Work: Sort of a new move, nothing complicated. More squats than lunges, not sure how I feel about that. I really like lunges, for how effective they are, not how much they hurt.
8. Shoulders “We’ll Be Coming Back”
Couldn’t find a video that sounded anything close to the BP version, guess you’ll have to be surprised.
Song: Hmm, a little intense but I think it works with the shoulder work-out well.
Work: 2 sets. Good luck. 2 sets means 2 very long sets.
9. Core “She’s So Mean” Matchbox 20
Song: A little more power than normal core tracks, nice change.
Work: New move, a bridge move. I don’t think this one will hurt as much as the last core release.
10. Cool-down “Try” P!nk
Song: I always joke with my class that I really want to know if P!nk has ever done a BP class because one of her song’s is in practically every release!
Work: No work. No new stretches. Short & simple.
