Benefits of the burpee
This powerful exercise uses the muscles of our abdomen, shoulder girdle, arms, legs and buttocks.
It’s also a great calorie-burning exercise—most people can do about 20 burpees in a minute. For example, a 150-pound person can burn about 250 calories doing burpees for 20 minutes.
You should keep in mind that you will burn more calories if you do burpees at a higher intensity.
How to perform the burpee
We stand tall, feet shoulder-width apart. We put our hands on the ground and do a deep squat. Without lifting the palms from the ground, we jump, stretch our legs and get into a plank position . It is necessary to ensure that the palms are exactly below the shoulders, and the body forms a straight line.
Now we bend the elbows along the body and touch the ground with the chest. In this case, the body must remain level. We return to the plank position, with a jump we press our knees to the chest, then we jump sharply with our arms raised. During the execution of the burpee, you should keep your back straight and look straight ahead. We do the exercise for 1-2 minutes, and we can increase repetitions and activity time as we improve our athletic ability.
