When it comes to burpees, many would agree that it’s a true love-hate relationship. Why?

Burpees are one of the single most amazing exercises on the planet and are highly respected within the fitness community. They require extreme effort using just your body weight and can be done anywhere at anytime. Known for their powerful results, burpees will challenge every muscle in your body. They are an intense combination of both strength training and cardio training which makes them a popular choice by all military forces, crossfit aficionados, extreme athletes, and fitness junkies.┬áIn fact, a 10 minute burpee session alone can burn approximately 100 calories. I’m positive you have heard the saying “sweat is fat crying”, right? Perhaps “calorie murdering” is more like it.

I failed to mention earlier that burpees are also a staple exercise within the prison community. Their explosive nature and high intensity requires not one, not two, but THREE jumps and while combining a series of standard exercises (push-up, squat, jump). Need I say more?
