Burpees are basically the most dreaded exercise of them all. Every time you hear someone talking about them, it is usually about how heinous they are or how hated. Love them (weirdo!) or hate them, we should all do them for a simple reason…they kick your butt. In a good way! They are a full body workout that you can do for free, anywhere and they work your chest, arms, deltoids, thighs, hamstrings and abs all in one exercise. And the best part is that they are a high intensity move which has been shown to burn up to 50% more fat than traditional strength training exercises. Here is a simple breakdown of how to correctly perform a burpee so you can whip your body into shape!
Modification: Do not jump up into starting position, and rather than hopping back with both feet, step back one foot at a time.
