Burpees are an awesome, calorie-torching, strength-building, full body exercise.
Not only will burpees turn you into an athlete, they’ll also help you scorch fat, rev up your metabolism and get you conditioned like no other exercise can do.
- Burpees make your body a fat burning machine: This is because burpees are an intense fully body exercise and burn a shitload of calories. Plus, research shows that high intensity exercises like burpees burn up to 50% more fat than moderate exercising.
- The burpee is a full body strength training exercise and the ultimate example of functional fitness. With every rep, you’ll work your arms, chest, quads, glutes, hamstrings, and abs. After a few sets of burpees, your legs should feel a little bit like lead.
- They’re great for developing conditioning and endurance! And they get your heart rate up—fast.
- Burpees are a great way to get in shape quickly, whether your goal is to learn a new sport, train for a triathlon, hike a big mountain, or, just to look good.
First, get into a squat position with your hands on the floor in front of you.
Kick your feet back into a push up position.
Return your feet back to the squat position as fast as possible.
Immediately jump up into the air as high as you can.
