Les Mills Pump

I just started a new workout program called Les Mills Pump. Those of you familiar with P90X and Beachbody.com have probably heard of it. It is a pretty popular workout program with classes offered at gyms across the country. My girlfriend was doing it for months and got me to go along with her to a class recently. She also just started a new job and the Pump classes around us no longer fit into her schedule, so she wanted to order it for home.

We’ve had it about 2 weeks now. I ordered the addons with it that include a few extra workouts. It is a little different than something like P90X in that the weightlifting workouts are pretty much a full body workout that emphasizes reps instead of maxing out on the weight. Where P90X stresses 8-10 or 12-15 reps for most exercises using the proper weight to feel the burn, with Pump you are doing far more repititions with lighter weights.

I wouldn’t say one is better than the other. It is just different. I’m enjoying the Pump workouts for that very reason. After doing the P90X workouts many, many times, it is fun to have something different to do for awhile.  I am one who does better with a set workout schedule I have to follow instead of trying to do my own workouts on my own schedule, so Les Mills Pump has brought a nice change to my routine.
