Burpees

Burpees
Say burpees to people who exercise regularly and they might just start crying. This is one of the best overall  bodyweight exercises you can do that not only gives you strength training benefits but also gives you an aerobic benefit.

I hate them but I do them. This guys going a little fast but you get the idea. Stand shoulder width apart and reach for the ceiling. Drop down to a push up position and kick your legs back like you are going to do a push up.

A variation of this is to actually do a push up. Don’t get mad. Just keep it in mind for when you feel like really kicking your butt.

Now jump back to the start of the push up position and jump straight up and reach for the sky again partner.

Did you like that? Now do them twenty times. I’ll wait. :-)
