- POUND fitness ClassPound fitness is a combination cardio and weight training exercise approach that includes some of the rhythmic techniques used in Pilates. A full-body workout that usually lasts 45 minutes to an hour, Pound includes exercises that involve alternate squatting and standing to strengthen the inner and outer thighs, buttocks, core muscles, and back muscles. Many of the positions used in Pound are ideal for helping maintain and improve balance. Colorful, light-weight (1/4-lb) drumsticks called ripstix add an element of fun to Pound classes while they help exercisers count out the length of time they hold certain positions. Although they are light weight, the ripstix also help tone forearms, upper arms, chest, and shoulders.
Although most Pound classes focus on strengthening the body overall, some classes are designed to target a specific part of the body. For example, you might find Pound classes that emphasize core muscles or other classes that focus on strengthening the back and shoulders.The only thing you need to be successful in a Pound class is comfortable, light-weight workout attire, well-fitted sneakers, and the motivation to improve your fitness! When you arrive at a Pound class, you will be given a mat and ripstix.
POUND burn calories: a person weighing 150 lbs can burn approximately 500 calories on average during a 45-minute high-intensity cardio workout. In addition, combining a cardio workout with interval and strength training is a great way to burn calories during a workout as well as build muscle that helps you burn calories when you are at rest.
POUND out of stress: As with any exercise, Pound classes offer exercisers a new option for relieving stress and keeping a bright outlook. If you enjoy high-energy, group fitness classes with rockin’ music, add Pound to your weekly workout.
Who can do POUND: If you are a man or woman in good health, you can take a Pound class. People who have knee pain should modify some of the lunges and squats during a Pound class to protect knee joints. If you have joint problems, talk with your Pound instructor to get her or his advice about how to benefit from the Pound class without causing more joint pain.
