Found out that you do alot of these in the army, start phase 1 soon and can do about 10 and im **ucked, other fitness standards of mine are fine like my situps press up and heaves, and 1:5 run are at a good entry standard but burpees kill me, are these designed to total *uck you up????

@ OP.

Practice, practice, practice...

If you want to go hard core, try a 'b4stard'

1. Standing position.
2. Crouch
3. Thrust legs back (as per squat thrust) so you are in a press up position.
4. Complete 1 press up.
5. Bring legs to front (completeing squat thrust exercise) so you are in a crouch position.
6. Jump in to air, in a star jump (Shouting "B4astard" optional).
7. Land with both feet together, in standing position. Goto 1. Repeat many times.

When you are in, you will not have the option of wimping out of exercises because of minor reasons like you are breathing out of your h00p.

If you do this and jump straight up as high as you can instead of in a star, you have what I would consider to be a proper burpee.

Nope, you have described the dreaded "B4stard with a clap".

Errrrr.... not quite. Hands straight to the sides in the attention position, toes pointed downwards. There is a variation, with the thumbs at 90 degrees to the palm but that's usually in Jock regiments and certain Irish elements of a Masonic persuasion :D

To be fair Chocolate Frog was describing a 'Burpee Royale', as opposed to M-t-G's more prosaic version!

i dont see the problem.
Was there an exercise going on? I was just mesmorised by the baps.

Burpees.. nothing to worry about there's not a "how many burpees you can do" test, its just progression. Bit of cross fitness and CV. Keep practicing as as you get fitter in other areas, these will become easier anyway. Practice things such as star jumps (A real star jump is bending down back straight touching your heels/ ankles and jumping up and out) and squat thrusts for example and you will be able to do more burpees. In honesty what a burpee is defined as depends on the instructor, if he's really generous it will be something really farfetched. Hope that helps :lol:

Eventually you will move on to 'Ninjas'.

Get a partner to hold your legs, and you do press ups... vertically.

Why are they called 'ninjas'?


I've always known them as handstand press ups or wall press ups.
