I thought I would share my Burpee Challenge workout. I typically perform this workout once a month, but lately I have been doing them weekly. My goal is to do 100 burpees in 10 minutes. This week I was able to complete 80 burpees.
I love this challenge. It is a tough workout, but definitely worth the effort.
Below are the steps to perform a burpee.
(Do you like my stick figures? Yep, made it myself. My creative juices are flowing… must be from the burpees.)
Step 1: Standing position.
Step 2: Squat down and place palms on the ground.
Step 3: Jump feet back or walk back into a plank position.
Step 4: Perform a push up.
Step 5: Return to a plank position.
Step 6: Jump or walk into a squat position like step 2.
Step 7: Power jump straight up with your arms above your head or stand straight up with your arms above your head.
That is how you perform a burpee.
In case my stick figures and step by step instructions doesn’t explain how to perform a burpee well enough for you, check out Bodyrock.tv burpee video.
To complete the Burpee Challenge, set a timer for 10 minutes and perform as many burpees as you can while maintaining proper technique.
If you performed the Burpee Challenge, how did you do?
Do you have a burpee goal?
