So if you're looking to be incredibly sore and walk like a grandpa for the next 2 days, I have a class for you. I went to my first Body Pump class yesterday, and little did I know about what I was getting myself into. I walk in and everyone was quickly and confidently grabbing all sorts of equipment. So naturally what do I do? I quickly and confidently start grabbing equipment like mats and plastic square things and weights and a bar. This was my first class and I had no idea what I would be doing, so I decided that 7.5lbs of weight on either side of the bar would be good to start out with. It didn't take longer than the first warm up session to rethink my decision and decide that 2.5lbs on either side of the bar was good enough. This class is demanding and challenging and at times I felt like I might not make it out of there alive. And the results, I'm sore all over, which in my opinion, means a good class.
