The burpee…it’s an exercise that people love to hate. In my opinion, it’s one of the best total body exercises you can do. The burpee can be done anywhere, and it’s the perfect combination of strength and cardio. Burpee variations are one of my favorite things to add into a workout. Adding variety to your burpees not only makes them more challenging, but it allows you to incorporate quite a few exercises into one movement.
Today’s workout is a great cardio workout. We’ve got some running and burpee variations that will get your heart rate up and get you sweating.
A Run and Burpees
Get a route mapped out because this workout starts with a two mile run (jogging or walking is perfectly fine here). If you don’t have somewhere to run, simply substitute 20 minutes of any cardio such as a stationary bike, elliptical, or row machine. Then, we are moving into some burpees :).
- 2 Mile Run
- Burpee Medley – REPS = 10
- Chest to Floor Burpee
- Squat Jack Burpee
- Jump Lunge Burpee
- Broad Jump Burpee
Get Those Burpees Done
