Burpees have a much-deserved reputation for being brutal, but they’re so popular because they get amazing results. Like most things that are hard, the end results make it all worthwhile.

How To do:

  • Start from a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Drop to the floor, and perform a push-up.
  • At the top of the push-up, jump forward to bring your knees to your chest,
  • And continue the jump to bring you as high off the floor as possible and back to a standing position.
  • These are real killers, but try to do as many as you can in two to three sets, lasting 30 seconds per set.
