How to Perform a Proper Burpee

This post has been brought to us by Mark Merchant and George Vafiades of As One Effect. Check them out on BooyaFitness.com.

Ah, the burpee – one exercise that requires, mobility, flexibility, strength, systemic conditioning (full body fitness), core and shoulder stability – love the burpee.  The burpee is an integral part of the As One program  so, if you’ve taken class, you certainly know how to do this.  But, if you, or a friend, want to come in and check out a class, this is a perfect way to get ready.

How to perform the burpee:


1. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart.


2. Bend over to the  ground with your hands down.


3. Jump your feet back as you lower your chest to the floor.


4. Press up and in one motion jump your feet back to starting position.


5. While standing up, jump up with your hands over your head.
