The ultimate burpee exercise workout routine is an exercise that gets the whole body moving and only requires your own bodyweight as the catalyst for working up a sweat. Doing a burpee workout routine is really about cardio but also building your shoulders, chest, glutes, thighs, and core as well as increases your respiratory endurance. Performing burpees is a little tougher on those who are heavy set or less fit, but there are modifications that can be implemented to ease the stress on the joints and, like all cardio exercises, you can adjust the pace to best fit your fitness level.
To perform the typical burpee, start standing. Squat down to the floor and place your hands on the floor in front of your feet and a little wider than your feet. Bear your weight on your hands and kick your feet back in one motion so you land in a plank position, and spring your feet back forward so they return to your hands and you are in a squatting position. From the squat, jump straight upward with your hands stretched above as high as you can. When you land you are back in the standing position to begin the next burpee. Some variations will have you do a pushup in the plank position before bringing your feet forward to the squat.
For a solid burpee routine, you need to incorporate some other maneuvers as your form will invariably suffer over a long enough period of time. For our purposes we will keep it as simple as possible; utilizing only our bodies with no other assistance or weight.
Squat, kick your feet out, kick your feet back in, stand. No pushups and no jump. Do this for thirty seconds.
Do 15 squats.
Back to burpees with pushup- squat, kick your feet out, pushup, feet back in, stand. No jumps. Do as many as you can for thirty seconds.
This should have been about 4 minutes of continuous activity.
While the exercise is simple, it will start to feel like a long time after the first two minutes. Work at a pace that is good for you until you get the hang of it. Go through the ultimate burpee exercise workout routine about three times for a solid 15 minutes of cardio and whole body burn.
