Burpees are an aerobic exercise that combine push-ups and squat jumps into one physically demanding activity. Benefits including increased endurance, weight loss, muscle strength and stability. Performing multiple reps of this move works the muscles in your legs, glutes, arms, abs, and back- making this a total body toning exercise.
How to Burpee:
Squat down and place your hands on the floor in front of you at the same width of your shoulders.
Jump both feet back so that you're now in a plank position.
Optional - Drop your chest in to a push-up (this can be a strict push-up, a push-up from the knees or not a push-up at all). Then, push up to return to a plank position.
Jump the feet back in toward the hands to prepare to stand.
Lastly, explosively jump into the air, reaching your arms straight overhead. This completes one Burpee Rep.
Perfecting this super move will provide the ultimate strength conditioning for any athlete.
Be strong at any level!
