Triceps: Our Picks From The 50s Series
If there's any one routine that's seen a lot of variety over the course of these last ten releases it'd be the triceps track. From 55's tricep-busting dips to 58's combo-laden Let's Get Down, the 50's series has taken BodyPump's triceps from a basic extensions & presses routine to one of the most dynamic tracks in the workout. So while many of our weekly mixes include a variety of picks from the 30's and 40's series, more often than not the triceps track is a 50's number. Here's our picks:
Best: California (C.O.) - BodyPump 55 - From the moment this track hit the streets it became the de facto standard against which all other BodyPump triceps are measured. No kidding. Just listening to it makes our triceps cry.

Worst: A To The B (Infernal) - BodyPump 59 - Is this a triceps song or squats? Sorry, we got confused for a moment and thought this was 57's From Paris To Berlin by the same group. More than once we've been tempted to swap those two and see if anybody notices...

Most Memorable: Take Your Mama (Scissor Sisters) - BodyPump 57 - Okay, after lavishing praise for all the great triceps variety in the 50's series we've turned right around and picked a basic extensions & presses song (with a few triceps push-ups thrown in for good measure). But hey, what's not to like about a tune we'll gladly play even when we're not rehearsing? We love it, and even after a full year of play we still haven't gotten enough of it!
Yes, once again we've managed to stir up all sorts of trouble with our latest list. Why? Because we love it when you click the comments link and tell us what think - even if you think we're nuts. By the way, we've got BodyPump 60 in our hot little hands, and we'll soon swat the beehive even harder when we post our review. In the meantime, we're spinning up our next list: Biceps

I love 55. I did it this past Sunday, and at the end, one of my participants said, while rubbing her triceps... "If you ever play that again, I'll break the CD!"

heh.

I love 51 let the sunshine in .With the down quick and freeze, also the single extensions. Also
I love 56 for the kickbacks.My least favorite is also 59 I played it only 3 times and that was be it.
The song is not very motivating Also I the combos dont really go with the music.

P.S I noticed that on release 60 you can skip the "ARE YOU READY" at the beginning of the dvd. maybe
they read your blog

California is a tri burner, but my fave is 52's All Things Keep getting better. You know you're in trouble when you start with all those pushups, but the music keeps me going!

Funny ... I love A to the B. Lol! But not everybody agrees! My fav of the 50s (and all tricep tracks I've ever donen) is definitely 56 - I just love kick backs! And the song is great too.
