Burpees with the Boys

Saturday!!!  Only a 43 today – rest day otherwise!

Today the boys did the demo for me.  Hunter is planning to do his age (11) at some point but decided breakfast needed to take priority!

Burpees (sometimes called squat thrusts) are always hard for me.  I think it is the combination of moves done in a quick manner – I don’t know but it is something I always have to force myself to do.  Start standing then quickly put hands on floor near feet. Jump feet back to plank position. Right away, jump feet back to hands. Stand and jump into the air then repeat.

There are many ways to really increase the intensity of the burpee.  One very common way is to add a push-up every time you are in the plank position.  For my 43 I decided to just go with the version without a push-up. (lots of push-ups already this week)

Enjoy your weekend!!
