Love them or hate them, the burpee is an amazing full body exercise that really gets your heart pumping! Because I know you enjoy them so much, I’m giving you different types of burpees that you can do over the Holidays! Try to complete each burpee for 1 minute with 30 seconds rest in between and do the whole burpee circuit twice!
Bosu Ball Burpee
Using a Bosu ball if you have one, or you can also use a medicine ball, start with the ball in your hands. Jump up with the ball above you and then bend your knees bringing your ball to the ground. Make sure you have your balance as you jump or step back into plank position. Then bring your legs back in and lift your ball over your head. You’ll definitely feel the burn in your arms with this one!
One Legged Burpee
Starting on the left leg you’ll jump bringing your right knee in up. Come down into plank while keeping your right leg off the ground and use your left leg to jump or step back into plank. In a fluid motion, bring your left leg back in and jump up starting all over again! Complete for 30 seconds on one leg and then switch!
Tuck Jump Burpee
Similar to a regular burpee, you’ll up the intensity by adding a tuck jump at the top. Using your arms for momentum, squat down and bring your knees up towards your chest. Once you land, complete that burpee!
Ready for more? Yes you are! Complete a regular burpee but add in a push-up! Once in your plank position, lower your chest down towards the ground, keeping your body in a straight line. If you need to modify, drop your knees and complete your push-up. Once back in plank, pull your knees back in and start again!
Out of breath? Good, it worked!
