If there was one thing you can do to lower your risk for heart disease, cancer, diabetes, cold, flu, even Alzheimer’s, would you do it? Numerous studies show there is one simple treatment that’s so powerful that can do all this–exercise!
Burpees are one of the most popular exercises to strengthen the body and the immune system. Yes it is challenging, but certainly a fun and beneficial exercise you can include in your workout routines.
How To Do A Burpee
Follow these tips and steps to make Burpees easier so that you can use them more effectively and start getting results;
Basic Walking Burpee
Start with the basic. This is ideal for beginners and will take you through most of the full range of movement without the massive amount of intensity that comes with the normal Burpee. Stand with your feet apart, bend your knees and reach the floor using your hands. Step your legs back and forth, one by one, and then return to the first position.
Push Up Burpee
This takes you a step further. In this stage, you’re doing all the actual movements that you’ll be doing in a normal Burpee. Stand with your feet apart, bend your knees and reach the floor with your hands. Then step your legs back, one by one followed by a push up.
Semi Full Burpee
Now you’re starting to get closer to a full Burpee. But here, you don’t do a push-up and a jump when you get to the top. Stand with your feet apart and bend your knees. Reach the floor with your hands and then step your legs back at the same time and return to the standing position.
Benefits of Burpees For Fat Loss
While Burpees are the most disliked exercise out there, they are really great exercise with many benefits for fat loss such as;
- They are a great all-round full body workout. With every rep, you are working your arms, chest, legs, butt and core.
- They are such an efficient way to burn calories.
- They are so versatile and you don’t need any equipment to do it.
There are so many ways to modify your Burpees. If the Burpee is too much for you, you need to use other progressions or regressions to get to this type of workout that will actually be fun for you, that you’ll enjoy and that you can start off with. Then, progress through different variations until you get to a Burpee and get all the great results that come with this exercise.
