Workout of the Week: Did Someone Say Burpee?!

If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Burpee, allow me to introduce you!

Burpee is a full body workout that is best for strength training and aerobic exercise. Here’s how it works!

  • Begin in a standing position
  • Drop into a squat position
  • Kick your feet back to a push up position
  • Immediately bounce your feet back to a squat position
  • Jump up as high as possible with your hands in the air and repeat the steps

They may get a bad rep for being difficult, but the results they give you definitely put them at the top of the list for effective workouts!

Now that you’ve been acquainted, let’s get this exercise started!
