How To Do The Burpee


Right now you're probably thinking, "What the heck is a burpee?" If you already do know, then you will also know that it is an excellent conditioning exercise. It engages a lot of your muscles from many of your muscle groups, making it very beneficial to your overall routine. Here is how to do the burpee.

Step 1:
Start by standing in an upright position.

Step 2:
Quickly crouch down and touch the ground with your hands.

Step 3:
Immediately after step 2, thrust your legs back so that you are in a push up position. Do not let your body touch the ground.

Step 4:
Keep your hands on the ground. Now bring your knees forward so that you are in a crouching position again.

Step 5:
Jump up in the air as high as you can with your arms raised up.

Make sure you have enough clearance for the jumping part of the exercise. Maintain good form throughout the exercise.

Dedication is Everything.
