Saturday Morning Drill: Energy Booster
Burpees may be dreaded by some, but those who do them frequently reap serious cardiovascular and muscular benefits.
To perform a burpee stand with feet hip width apart then squat straight down, placing your hands by your feet. Putting most of your weight on your hands, kick your feet straight back into plank position, keeping back straight and engaging your abs throughout the motion. Then immediately jump your feet back up, driving your knees toward your chest and rise straight up with hands toward the ceiling and jump as high as you can.
This is one rep - complete a total of 15; 20 if you're up for a challenge. For an even greater challenge, perform a push up each time you kick your feet back into plank.Next Prev Slide 2 / 8
