Les Mills BodyCombat 45 Filming

Another great release delivered by the beloved Dan & Rach - BC45 focuses on the kicks and the footworks; for example if you don't already know when executing the frontkicks, you got to kick with the ball of the foot, this release is likely to put you in the right direction. If you don't know how to balance your bodyweight when kicking and how to control your kicks, you might also learn in this release!

Special shoutout to presenter Shaz from Australia, she adapted well and marked great improvement since her arrival. Great job Shaz!

This time for the BC filming only, the "first timers" (and those who pretended to be) got the priority to choose where they want to stand, so the front row was quickly filled up with the "new faces". A tip for the new filming participants - if you want to stand in the front row, you might want to come a week earlier to get a flavor of the new release and familiarise yourself with the choreography (especially for programs like BC that features dynamic movements), so at least you know which direction we are moving towards to in certain tracks.

The reason I bring this up is for example if the front row doesn't shuffle forward when the people behind them are doing so, there will be "safety issues" - I got squashed when the guy standing in front of me didn't want to shuffle forward and person behind then bumped into me. Also by having more practices you'll learn the right techniques... i.e. when executing a certain kick, you don't move backwards... my toe was destroyed today when someone stepped on my foot.

Remember that safety shall never be compromised no matter what rules you want to apply. Filmings are not for showing off yourself... the spot light will always be on the presenters... it will be great if you can learn something from this experience...

Finally a disclaimer that the pictures are not taken during the filmings. Also please do not copy and circulate these images.

Man... congratulations... you focused on a theme that I always comment. Sometimes, persons don't have the idea of safety... Probably, you should post that "article" on FB either...

anyway... great article ;)

Too many new rules for "one tribe" I'm afraid filming is becoming one big happy meal without a surprise toy.
"people with bad technique should not embarrass themselves in the front row" and "people who is new to filming should go to the front row"
I'm confused. isn't it contradicting?

this is the best resume about BC45 filming, i've read others but yours... detail abou focus in this realese.
But how about the music, others report said that the music is just another recycle music from Last BC release.
It would be perfect if report it too just a litte
Good job bro

Sounds to me that you're bitter about not being able to go on the front row! New people shoould get the chance to stand up front too. As you said: filming isn't the time for YOU to show off...

Anonymous, I don't care what you think but to be honest I don't like filmings, too many people and the time drags on and on... I was mainly there just to support the team. As you can see I didn't even attend BC46 filming. When did I say it's about me? stop putting me into your shoes.. I am not like you who think filmings are a venue to show off... where's the passion for fitness? ;)
