And probably the only thing beautiful about them. Their reputation isn't the best and the name isn't even remotely attractive. Burpee? Really? But they are awesome. I swear! Not only do they work your entire body, they make you stronger, they burn lots of calories, they are great for conditioning, and you can add them to almost any workout.
If your bored with the plain ole burpee here are a few variations that will spice things up a bit:
- Bosu Ball Burpees (flat side up)
- Weighted medicine ball burpees - slamming the ball on the ground after each rep
- Burpees w/dumbbells - adding a hammer curl into shoulder raise at the end)
- Single leg burpee on the TRX - keeping one foot in the TRX
Who knows, maybe you will learn to love burpees. Or maybe just tolerate them. Either way you will love the results.
