BODYPUMP™ is a barbell-based program takes you through a full array of traditional strength training exercises such as squats, lunges, chest presses, and bicep curls to burn calories, shape and tone your entire body, increase core strength, and improve bone health. Each barbell has adjustable weight plates, allowing participants of varying fitness levels to challenge themselves and progress at their own pace.
