Ill be honest, no one likes burpees….at least not in the beginning. This movement builds strength, local muscular endurance and provides a tremendous conditioning effect. SOOOOOO many benefits for such a simplistic movement that we will continue to utilize it many times over.
A stimulating thought:
During WWII, the US military used the burpee to gauge the fitness level of recruits.
Perform 41 burpees in 1 minute….you have EXCELLENT fitness.
Perform 27 burpees in 1 minute…..your fitness level is POOR.
With that in mind, enjoy the middle of todays workout!
