    I like doing burpees because they're so much harder than they look. Just try a few without stopping and you will see what I mean! They really are a great way to get your whole body warmed up before a workout, or even a great standalone workout when you don't have time to get to the gym.

    If you want to do this with a much higher level of intensity, after you kick your legs out, do a pushup, then bring your right knee to your chest, then do another pushup, then bring your left knee to your chest, then do another pushup before jumping your feet to your hands.

    Burpees are so good for your overall cardiovascular endurance and a great total body movement to get your heart rate up, (you can also add burpees to your workout in the beginning as a warm-up or the end as a great fat-burning finisher) but...

    Behind every great person is a ton of burpees! The burpee is a great cardio exercise. You can do them anywhere and it gets your heart going fast. I remember a while ago I did a workout that was a squat/bupree pyramid workout it was really challenging it went like this: 10 burpees, 1 squat, 9 burpees, 2 squats, 8 burpees, 3 squats and so on. I give the burpee an easy 5 stars!

I'f I'm looking for a quick warm-up or I don't have much time to workout that day I'm hitting up the burpees. One of the best parts is no equipment needed and they can be done anywhere. They are a no excuses exercise!
