Picture this – you’re in the middle of a set of burpees. The first five feel good, you can feel the burn but you’re handling it like the champ you are. Then you start on your sixth one, your legs are burning, your lungs are aching, and the thought of jumping up and then right into a push-up makes you have that sour throw-up feeling in your mouth.
Burpees are terrible. Period. But, (and there is a ‘but’) burpees are also one of the most beneficial exercises you can do. They increase your heart rate helping you burn fat while also helping you build muscles in your arms and legs. They can be done almost anywhere and don’t require additional equipment. So, we’re going to challenge you to become a Burpee Queen. To master the dreaded burpee and prove once-and-for-all that you are stronger than the burpee.
Take this HAPARI Fitness Test, and accept the Burpee Challenge!
