Overview of the Les Mills Pump
In case you missed my previous post on the Les Mills Pump DVD series, here’s a quick overview.
The Les Mills Pump is a new home fitness DVD training series. It is based on the Les Mills Bodypump classes – these are real classes held in over 14,000 gyms across 80 countries worldwide. They are so popular that over 3 million people attend each and every week. So that gives you an idea of how popular and how well this system works – and now you can have it in your own home.
The Rep Effect
So what is Bodypump, anyway? It’s a system based on using barbells with high repetitions to build sexy, lean muscle faster than ever before. This is what’s known as the Rep Effect in the new Les Mills Pump DVD series.
You’ll be working out 3 times a week over a 90-day period. Be prepared for some tough workouts though – you’ll need those days off.
You can set the weight you’re comfortable with – but this system is based on high reps and relatively lower weights compared to other home fitness courses. With up to 100 reps per body part, in some workouts you’ll reach 800 reps in one sitting. All that matters here though is that you’ll know that you’ll be burning up to 1,000 calories per hour, which is incredible.
The Rep Effect truly means this workout is one of the very fastest at burning fat, losing weight and building sexy muscles.
The video above shows you what the rep effect is all about. It’s worth a look to see what the program is like if you haven’t already seen it.

My Les Mills Pump Review
Some of the best pump trainers were brought in to help create this DVD series, and it really shows. When you’re really pushing with the Rep Effect in full force, the motivation the trainers and the music tracks give you is crucial. Not all of the songs are to my taste, but then again nothing will cater for everybody. I just put on some of my own music whenever I felt like it, because the power of rhythm in music always helps me work out better.
While it’s only 3 days a week, it is still hardcore! In the first few weeks, my legs were shaking after each workout. You can feel it working several different muscle groups, especially in the compound workouts in the Pump And Burn DVD.
The Les Mills Pump Flow DVD makes for a nice change with some stretches. You can do this on a day off if you like, maybe on a Sunday. That’s how I usually do my workouts (I’m a big fan of Beachbody and how they structure their workout programs).
Caters To All Levels
I wouldn’t call myself a beginner anymore when it comes to fitness. I coped fairly well with the 90 days, although it was tough-going in parts.
That said, I wanted to convey in this Les Mills Pump review that it doesn’t matter what level you are currently at. You can adjust the weights as low as you need them. They’ll teach you how to properly set up and care for your barbells and weights, so no need to worry on that front.
I trimmed my body fat by 2% using this program, which for me is a pretty good improvement as I like to keep it as low as possible. Currently I’m at 7% after using the Les Mills Pump. That’s how I tend to rate my progress. Of course, your goals are unique – you may be looking to lose some weight, cut down on belly fat, build some lean muscle or just get a healthier, sexier look.
In any case, I think you can achieve your goals with the Les Mills Pump. It’s another fantastic offering from Beachbody and it’s already taking off big time. Experts are saying that it’s one of the fastest ways to get lean muscles ever, and I have to agree.
I don’t want to give a mark out of 10 or anything, I just want to give my whole-hearted recommendation to you for this program. You can probably afford to take the trial offer of $14.95 up no matter what your circumstances, so why not give it a shot? You have 30 days to try it out, and you can cancel at any time (but you won’t want to). Click through now to see what all the fuss is about:
Good luck on your Les Mills Pump 90-day journey!
