Get Fit-Stay Fit Challenge Week 4: Burpee Challenge

Burpee Challenge

If you think you are going to get a break from using your arms today, I hate to break it to you……

Today’s exercise challenge involves your WHOLE body.  We are tackling the exercise I love to hate the most,  my best friend and worst enemy, THE BURPEE.

I know you all are so sore already from the last two days so I won’t torture you too much today.  I ONLY want you to perform 25 BURPEES, but heres the catch:  They have to be full on burpees with perfect form, unless you are a beginner of course.

Never heard of a burpee before?  Check out the pictures below and some tips on how to get your burpee on.

Burpee Challenge

Tips to keep in mind when performing a burpee:

-When jumping back into a plank don’t let your hips drop.  Control the movement.  Use your core.

-Keep your head and neck in line when in the plank.

-When jumping land softly and slight bend your knees.

-Go at your own pace. The key is proper form not speed.

I want to know, have you ever done a burpee before?
