Burpees are just as effective as they are difficult, which makes us not want to include them in our routine. However, this move is great for both strength training and aerobics. If you're looking to lose weight or to tone, this move is a great addition to your routine!
Step 1: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your hands tucked behind your head with elbows out.
Step 3: Kick your legs backward so that you’re now in a push up position.
Step 4: Quickly reverse the movement to return to the starting position by bringing your feet back into your hands.
Step 5: Push through your feet and jump up to the start position. That’s one rep.
Modification (beginner): Do not jump up into starting position, and rather than hopping back with both feet, step back one foot at a time.
