Alright BODYPUMPERS, here’s my class playlist for the next few days…
Some playlist highlights…
Track 2 (Squats)— All about endurance. Six and a half minutes of squats, little recovery. We spike the heart rate and build muscle tension.
Track 3 (Chest)— Fun song, continuous tension. The last set is the toughest, we go all out until the finish!
Track 4 (Back)— Holy wide rows! I’m taking emphasis off of the clean press this week and focusing on the rows. You’ll feel it in the upper back.
Track 5 (Triceps)— Death by overhead tricep extensions. 😵
Track 6 (Biceps)— Very short and efficient Bicep track this week. No recovery, maximum effort.
Track 7 (Lunges)— We’re firing up the glutes and pushing up the heart rate with lunge propulsions!
Track 8 (Shoulders)— Fun song, maybe some hip shaking. We take it home with plenty of overhead presses and pec decks!
Track 9 (Abs)— lots of pulsing crunches to fire up the midsection, toning the 6 pack.

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on the site. But, I have something very exciting to talk about. If you’ve followed my posts on Facebook recently, you’ve probably noticed that I’m obsessing over a new class format– SANDBAG XPRESS. The class is LVAC exclusive, and yet another reason as to why Las Vegas Athletic Club is leading the way in the fitness industry. This new format truly changes the game when it comes to working out!
SANDBAG XPRESS is unlike any other fitness class. Definitely not the stereotypical old-school classes that come to mind. I can’t think of any other class in which you slam sandbags on the floor, run laps around the room with a sandbag over your shoulder, and perform numerous other intensity-driven exercises. In this class, we work out like athletes and leave the room champions.
Join me 5:15pm on Thursday nights at LVAC Northwest (upstairs in Room 2). Only 30 minutes of work, but you’ll get the workout of your life. Test your fitness limits and leave the room stronger than ever before!
Vegas peeps, you’ve GOT to check it out.
This week’s focus in my BODYPUMP classes has been the plyometric bench jump. The key to this move is to land soft and control the body. This will protect the knees and isolate the working muscles. Start easy, get a feel for the movement and range, and then add some explosion! This move is sure to elevate the heart rate and challenge the legs.
Lately, a large chunk of my workouts have been strength related. Whether it be BodyPump or heavy lifting in the gym, my exercise routine calls for lots of weights! Well, I’m stepping off the weight training radar for a couple of weeks as I will have zero access to any equipment. Originally, I was ready to go into panic mode, but with the help of Pinterest (and other bloggers!) I’ve come up with a couple of ways to maintain my strength and progress while out of town!
So, there’s no regular post today. Sorry!!! But, I’ve been updating the site a little bit! I added a page that is entirely dedicated to my Les Mills BodyPump experience. I also (finally) added a Rock n Roll San Diego race review on my Race Recaps page! Go check it all out! Have an amazing day, and Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there! A full father’s day post is to come tomorrow 🙂
