Try it Thursday: Did Someone Say Burpees?

I have a love hate relationship with several things in life; the dentist, chocolate chip cookie dough, and Christmas music to name a few.

Burpees easily climb to the top of this list as well!

I love burpees because they burn mega calories, they make you stronger, they require no equipment, and you can get creative with them! I hate them simply because they kick my butt every time I do them!

Today our challenge is to see how many burpees we can do in 30 seconds. Check in on the comments section or social media!

How to do a proper burpee:
-Stand up straight, then get into a squat position with your hands on the floor in front of you.
-Jump your feet back into a plank position and immediately jump your feet back up towards your hands as quickly as you can. (These burpees are about speed, so no push-up is necessary.)
-Immediately jump into the air as high as you can!
-Adding a clap will get you bonus points!

  • So we did 65 burpees tonight. I didn’t complete them all, but tough nonetheless. Still not my favorite.

  • I got 16 at 5′ 10″. Lungs were fine, but I think the number one can do in a fixed amount of time is related to ones height ( yes ever the nerd). The taller someone is, the more distance they have to cover. Let’s see.

  • I will try this challenge tomorrow. I don’t want to do too many and then have my butt kicked at the Thursday workout!!! Too much of a good thing perhaps?! Great challenge….adding it to my list and will see if I improve with time. ­čÖé
