Why is LES MILLS PUMP so effective?
- It’s all about the REP EFFECT. Unlike traditional strength workouts, which feature heavy weights that bulk people up, this program features light to moderate weights used at a higher rate of repetition.
- The constantly changing tempo, body position, and speed of the REP EFFECT breaks down more fat reserves, targets more muscle fibers, and burns more calories than traditional weight training.
What are the workouts like?
- Muscles reach fatigue by performing 70-100 repetitions per body part. That’s about 4 times more reps than one would typically perform in a standard gym workout.

Q. Why is LES MILLS PUMP so effective?
A. It’s all about THE REP EFFECT™. Unlike traditional strength workouts, which feature heavy weights that bulk you up, LES MILLS PUMP features light-to-moderate weights used at a higher rate of repetition. And by changing the tempo, position, and speed of your movements, THE REP EFFECT™ pushes your muscles to their most effective levels of fatigue. It also boosts your heart rate so you burn more calories. The result? You get lean and strong instead of big and bulky.
Q. What are the workouts like?
A. In a typical LES MILLS PUMP workout, your muscles reach fatigue by performing 70- 100 repetitions per body part. That’s about 4 times more reps than you’d perform in a standard gym workout. Training with THE REP EFFECT helps you break down more fat reserves, target more muscle fibers, and burn more calories than traditional weight training. And that means meaningful fat loss and strength improvement for you, without building mass.
Q. Do I really have to work out only 3 times a week? If I want, can I work out on other days too?
A. We encourage you to engage in non-resistance training workouts (such as cardio or cross-training) on other days, but with LES MILLS PUMP alone, you can get world-class results by working out just 3 times a week. Phase One challenges your body to start
shedding serious pounds through shorter workouts that boost metabolism and stimulate weight loss. Phase Two changes your body shape by sculpting the muscles that “lean out” your look. Phase Three strengthens your body to give you a ripped, chiseled physique without ever bulking up.

Q. Do I need the step platform to do the LES MILLS PUMP workout?
A. No. You can still get a calorie-crushing workout by doing LES MILLS PUMP on the floor. Please keep in mind, however, that the step:
