Was amazed at all the comments on my previous post on 11 things you may not know about BodyCombat.  I’ve only been teaching from BodyCombat 44 so hearing about releases prior was very interesting.

we need you

A quick reminder that I am a Les Mills Instructor, I have no other affiliation to Les Mills. This post is for my own personal interest as I am hoping to be bringing back throwback Thursdays (want to contribute?) :).

The big question

Participant, instructor or even a trainer, question is :

What are your top 3 BodyCombat tracks and why?

I don’t think it’s an easy question to answer. 72 releases which means over 700 tracks to choose from. Are you a power track lover, maybe a Muay Thai warrior or bit of both? Are you a rock chick or a dance diva?

My top 3 and why

BodyCombat 40 – Track 3 – Sweetheart (Squad-E Remix) – Rezonance-Q

es-Mills-BodyCombat-40-poster

 

  • I remember the masterclass on the video. Tanya Walker, one of the greats. Inspiring master trainer luckily enough to have her for my initial training and BodyCombat AIM 1. Shame they don’t make them like her any more…..
  • Music takes you to new levels pushing you to work harder.
  • Simple boxing combinations.
  • Speedball really blasts the shoulders in all the right places.
  • It’s fun, fast and funky.
  • Bit of a mental sweat going on.

BodyCombat 50 – Track 3 :   What’s Up? (Dougal & Gammer Hardcore Mix) – DJ Destiny

  • The music makes you want to work with the simple but effective boxing combinations.
  • Lots of areas and chances to increase levels maximising the track output for both instructors and participants.
  • The way Judy King teaches this track on the masterclass is just perfection.
    • Presence on stage.
    • Motivational cues.
    • Level changes.
    • Use of music to empower the workout.
    • Delivering the choreography.
  • It appears on my mix atleast once every quarter.

BodyCombat 44 track 8 :  Your shining (Hixxy Remix) – Styles and breeze

Les-Mills-BodyCombat-44-poster

  • Was the release I went from being a participant to an instructor.
  • A great 8 minutes to end a release on.
  • Final round has over 130 jabs.
  • The music makes you want to work with the simple but effective boxing combinations.
  • Lots of areas and chances to increase levels maximising the track output for both instructors and participants.
  • Love the music and love the energy of this track.

8 COMMENTS

  1. Definitely tough to pick just 3 so I will give you 4….I’m partial to tracks 3, 4, and 8 🙂

    Track 8 – Set You Free (I believe it has appeared in 3 releases to date but I’m referring to Release 40, Track 8 and Overload
    Track 4 – Jump That Rock and The Power of the Mind

    Without fail these tracks always create an energy for me.

  2. 3: BC 62 track 5: Crash – Al Storm
    – Awesome music
    – A lot of power on those jabs, crosses, uppercuts and hooks
    – A really good flow in the moves and music

    2: BC 71 bonus track 5: Basque Gold – Wydez
    – So much energy to push off
    – Rhythmic music to punch harder and harder
    – Simple combinations with a lot of flow
    – Mental sweat is getting real

    1: BC 53 track 5: True Believer (Styles And Breeze Remix) – E-Type
    – Simple combinations, yet SO MUCH POWER, especially on the last uppercuts
    – A really, really funky piece of wonderful music
    – The whole workout room just blasts at the beginning – right as the two big drums can be heard when the song starts
    – You get so sweaty, but the sweat still rocks to the funky music

  3. Come on… lets not beat around the bush here..

    1) black pearl bc43 track 6!! No arguments lol
    2) invincible is a fave bc 54 track 5
    3) bc 45 track 3 because the night… because i like the weave on the beat

    The 40’s are a fave and i like a good beat!

  4. Track 5 from 61 – Stairway To Heaven
    – Fantastic music to push the class and great to coach with too 😉
    – A powerfull choreography – the uppercuts and hooks will leave you sore!
    – It has the vibe of a track 8, but better due to the high intensity of a track 5.

    Track 7 from 71 – Ocho Cinco
    – So many knees!!!
    – Simpel choreography, where it’s all about power and speed!
    – It’s muay thai – it’s always awesome
    – It leaves the class and I with a lot of sweat on the floor and out of breath

    Track 4 from 53 – Sweet Dreams
    – Release 53 is probably one of the best releases ever! I enjoy almost every track from it, but this is my favorite, haha.
    – The music is badass and rock n’ roll like.
    – Lots of great leg work and karate inspiration!

  5. 43 track 6 black pearl everyone can relate to the tune and feel awesome once they master the sword!
    65 track 7 party monster awesome beat and can get anyone happy and totally exhausted with this one.
    64 track 6 black widow. love the after bite from this one and the music witch you can use during class ‘crazy’get down hold on..

    65 track 4 i think or six the day is my enemy really heavy and love the lunge quarter turn squat combo

  6. That’s a tought question, I have many BodyCombat top tracks…
    1. My absolute fave is Overload (I looooooooooooove tracks 8, other faves are Your Shining and Silence). More the music than the chorey itself, although I like the combos with the body hooks.
    2. The Black Pearl (original) – I just love how the music goes well with the moves and love the “theatricals” (not sure it is an English word) of the moves.
    3. Nessaja. Scooter is my absolute favourite BodyCombat band and I love the energy and the chorey of this track.
    I’d better stop here as I have many, many other tracks coming to mind as I am writing.

  7. Tough question. Top two are definitely Your Shining and The Silence. Partly because I love the music, partly because I love the variety in the choreography and the fact you never know what’s coming next (until you’ve done it enough times to know it by heart 🙂 ) I was thinking of a track 5 for my final choice (Invincible, Nessaja, Don’t Need) but then I remembered how much I love The Phoenix so I’m going to choose that instead. I love the drama in the music and the way the choreography just fits so perfectly with it.

  8. Mix 36 Track 04 – Zombie
    Love the originality ☺ (the “paws”)
    ————————————————————-
    Mix 53 Track 07 – Blade (Re-con remix)
    Honestly, to me, the most explosive track EVER
    ————————————————————-
    Mix 58 Track 03 – Shooting Star (Storm’s HS remix)
    Happiest song in the world ☺☺☺
