Choose your levels of intensity from beginner to advanced and jump to it, Burpee Style!
The burpee is a fundamental compound exercise activating many muscle groups, The exercise combines a Squat, A SQUAT THRUST, a PLANK and an EXPLOSIVE SQUAT (or Squat Jump) into one movement making it extremely dynamic and functional.
If looking at the movement pattern your unsure of how to safely perform it or have never done much exercise before, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the SQUAT, a push pattern exercise, from here you can progress to the beginner burpee.
To start, adopt a ‘Squat’ stance with feet at about hip width apart and soft knees, squat down to the floor, placing your hands on the floor in front of you, first take one leg back, then the other so you hold a plank position before bringing one leg back and then the other and push through the floor to return to a standing position.
To start, adopt a ‘Squat’ stance with feet at about hip width apart and soft knees, squat down to the floor, placing your hands on the floor and hop both feet backwards to perform a Squat Thrust, that is, a double hop back to a Plank position. Now hop both feet forwards again bring your knees up towards your chest, now perform an explosive push through the floor to drive yourself into a squat jump making sure your feet leave the floor.
Full Burpee with Press Up
As with the regular burpee, this time once you get into the plank position you’re going to do a press up and explosively press out of it to complete the burpee as normal.
