Notice The Longer Lunge Tracks?
Fellow blogger, instructor, and long distance friend Mr. Timothy dropped us a line this morning with a couple of rather interesting observations. He points out that over the last 10 or so releases (since Glen Ostergaard took over as lead choreographer) there's been a definite uptick in the lunge track length. To be sure, 9 of the 10 longest lunge tracks are Ostergaard-choreographed routines. Since Pump soundtracks need to fit within a ±49 minute time window, something has to give - and it looks like the bicep track has been the primary donor. Which isn't all bad, really... the longer lunge tracks work a much larger group of muscles, burning more calories and building core strength.
Bottom line: Now may be the time to amp up your bicep workout with an extra plate on both sides of the bar. And take an extra deep breath between tracks 6 & 7!

Notice any other trends in the Pump workout over the last couple years? Tell us about it!

we're stuck with the cheap rip-off called Elixia Power. Any suggestions on how to convince our gym to get back on the BP track?

Well, we now officially have the longest and toughest lunge track. Dangerous (literally) from BP 74 will kick your butt!

Hover (or plank) in glen BPs ab track every time. In M. Mc sweeny BPs more crunches with more leg pull ups(lower abs work that was also the killer) and no lunge tracks on bench top at all.
