I love getting a new BODYPUMP release DVD. I love hearing the new music, learning new moves and seeing the latest innovations.
But another thing that I love about the BODYPUMP instructor DVD is the motivational sayings that are said during the workout.
The little words that help you push during the last minute of the squat track. The encouragement that the instructor gives during that last set of tricep dips. I feel like these sayings can totally make the workout. And as an instructor, I try to use these sayings in my own class in the hopes that I can encourage my participants to get the best workout possible.
And I just wanted to share a few recent sayings that I have gotten from the last few BODYPUMP releases.
If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you. <—this is by far my most favorite saying. It is SO true, right? And really applicable to pretty much every facet in life.
If it’s starting to burn, it’s starting to work. <—YES!!
Hot, heavy, hard. <—pretty much describes all of BODYPUMP.
Now, the workout begins. <—said during the last set of the squat track. And is SO true. The first few sets are getting warmed up – what your body is used to. . . that last set is where the workout is made and is the most important.
Finish hard. Finish strong. <—I use this one during the last set to help encourage people to not check out of the last bit of the song and to keep the tension in the muscles and to finish what we started.
What’s your favorite motivational saying? What do you repeat over and over in your head during the last set of a super tough workout?
