Yes I said burpees! Now burpees are one of those classic exercises you will find in any HIIT or bootcamp style session. Why? well this one exercise works the muscles across the upper and lower body. There are 3 elements; you start of standing, squat down and jump into plank. Now you guys should know that I like to mix things up a little, so I have added a few new additions at the end of each burpee combination. Check out the demonstration video and download your copy of the poster by clicking on the image.
100 Burpees a day
I said this at the beginning, this is probably going to burn. LOL, I make no excuses for this one, as unlike the other challenges we have completed so far this year, they were all based on time. This month, we are aiming for 100reps and however long it takes is however long it takes. Now you can do this as a stand alone workout or tag it with your other activities you might be doing.
Is this just for the ladies?
No way! Although the resistance bands tend to be marketed to females wanting to build their glutes, this challenge right here is great from increase overall strength and tone. Burpees with resistance bands are so much more challenging and also test your balance and coordination. So tell the men in your life to get in on this!
Don't worry I have got you. For those of you who have been working out with me for a while, you should know that I love a standing burpee modification; you literally skip the plank and give me a deep squat and press your arms up as you stand. Boom! No excuses, something for everyone making this wrist friendly too!
