Burpee

Burpee With Pushup
Edgar Artiga

The burpee is a bodyweight exercise that targets many muscle groups as well as your cardiovascular and muscular endurance. It should be performed properly and with perfect form to avoid injury.

Instructions

  1. burpee-step1
    Start by standing with feet at shoulder-width.
  2. burpee-step2
    While keeping your back straight, squat down until you can touch the floor.
  3. burpee-step3
    Put your weight onto your arms, and jump back into a pushup position. Keep your core tight, and do not allow your back to collapse.
  4. burpee-step4
    Jump your feet forward to your hands and stand back up, and, in one motion, jump with hands overhead and hips extended.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Be sure to incorporate a soft landing to your jumps.
