Participants do weights to get strong, do BODYPUMP® to get ripped! Instead of running on a treadmill for cardio where you may burn muscle mass as fuel, you can boost your heart rate in BODYPUMP® by doing lighter weights and higher reps. That way you can burn fat and even build upon your muscle mass for that ripped look you’re after.
The fastest way for you to lose weight and tone up is by incorporating full body weights to your routine. You can start off light, focusing on technique, then build up your strength as you go.
