Workout Challenge : BURPEES!!

I have a Love/Hate relationship with burpees.

Such a funny name….BURPEES!  LOL!

Anyway, whether I like them or not burpees are an awesome conditioning exercise and superb for calorie burn.

Do you know how to do a burpee?

Just in case you don’t I will write a description and then show a video for the visual learners among us. (—> ME <—)

  • Stand up with your feet about shoulder width apart.
  • Bring your hands to the floor in a crouch position.
  • Push your legs out behind you so you are in a plank position.
  • Perform a push-up. (Note: Depending on who you talk to a true burpee has the pushup or not.) You can drop your knees to the floor if you need to.
  • From the plank position bring your legs back to your chest in the crouch positionn like before.
  • Stand up again to the starting position.
  • A TRUE burpee (a burpee purist here) throws in a hop at the top of the standing back up step.

Make sense?

Here’s your video…..


And now for the Burpee Challenge….

Round 1: Perform 1 good form burpee…

Round 2: Perform 2 good form burpees…

Round 3: Perform 3 good form burpees…

Repeat until you hit Round 10 of 10 good form burpees
