The Burpee

Hey Healthy Panthers! #chaptown

This week’s blog post is on burpees and why you should make them a part of your workout! #gethyped

Burpees are often performed by athletes, military forces, and crossfit junkies, because of their intensity and benefits #armystrong

The exercise involves starting from a squat position, moving into a push up, back to a squat, and jumping into the air with max effort #reachforthesky #buzzlightyear #toystory

There are six reasons why burpees are the best workout around #takenotes

#1 Burpees burn many calories because they are high intensity workouts, burning 50% more fat than moderate exercise and boosting metabolism #burnbabyburn #discoinferno #70ssongs

#2 Burpees increase strength by working your arms, chest, quads, glutes, hamstrings, and abs with every rep #getswole

#3 Burpees are great for conditioning and endurance because they rev up your heart rate #vroomvroom

#4 Burpees require no equipment or gym membership. You just need a flat surface and the right attitude #attitudeiseverything

#5 Burpees can be added to any workouts to amplify the intensity. Add them between sets of sprints or ab routines #hardworkpaysoff #pushyourself

#6 There are many variations of burpees to choose from. #burpeepullups #burpeeboxjumps #neverbored
