Burpees Overview

Burpees are a simple but effective way to get your heart rate up and tone your muscles. The key to doing this exercise correctly is to keep your core engaged the entire time. It is an excellent way to pump up your blood and shed off your belly fat.

How to Do It

  • Start in a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Lower into a squatting position, then place your hands on the ground in front of you.
  • Kick your legs back so that you end up in a push-up position.
  • Quickly return to the squatting position and then jump up into the air as high as you can.
  • Repeat this process for 30 seconds to 1 minute for a great cardio workout. If you want to add more of a challenge, do 2 or 3 sets of this exercise.

Burpees Tips

  • Keep your core engaged the entire time to get the most out of this exercise.
  • Make sure to jump up high enough to extend your arms overhead fully.
  • Land softly on your feet to avoid injury.
  • If you want more of a challenge, do 2 or 3 sets of this exercise.

Healthier and Happier Life is One Step Away.
