Burpees are amazing for your body! They are a high intensity exercise that stimulates numerous muscles all throughout your body.

BENEFITS OF BURPEES:

  • Burn More Calories: Due to their high intensity, they burn a lot of calories – even up to 50% more fat than moderate exercises.
  • Accelerate your Metabolism: Due to the number of muscle involved in the exercise, burpees speed up your metabolism throughout the day.
  • Increase your Stamina: They accelerate your heart rate, making them great for bettering your endurance and conditioning.
  • Highly Functional: Burpees engage a great number of muscles, from your arms, to your shoulders, chest, abs, lower back, legs, and glutes, making you stronger all over.
  • Versatile: They require no equipment. So they can be performed any time, anywhere.
  • A great Complementary Exercise: It can be added to any routine or additional exercise. You can perform a burpee along with a pull up, a push up, or a box jump. The combination are endless!

 

HOW TO PERFORM: 

  • Stand up straight, then squat down and bring your feet back into a push up position with your hands on the floor.
  • Bring your feet towards your hands and pick yourself up as fast as possible.
  • Then, jump up and repeat!
