A burpee is a movement commonly used in circuit training, CrossFit and military workouts.
The movement goes as follows…
1. Get down onto your hands and balls of your feet (think push up position)
2. With a swift jump style movement bring your feet up to your hands
3. Jump up into the air
4. Get back into the original position and repeat
The burpee is extremely hard to do after three or four repetitions, and will challenge your body and mental strength to the max.
However, it is one of the absolute best exercises you can do as it encompasses both a cardiovascular and full body-strength workout. On top of this, the burpee can be performed anywhere at any time and requires minimal space.
We highly recommend you incorporate this movement into your circuit routine, run, or any kind of workout you can.
