Exercise of the Month – Burpees!

The Burpee workout combines standard bodyweight movements such as squat, press up and vertical jump but put these all together and the end results are huge!

You can improve your ENTIRE body strength, including your core muscles, whilst increasing your Vo2 Max. The combination cuts away fat whilst keeping your heart and lungs healthy in the process.

Simply start with these 6 movements and repeat.

Try completing 10 repetitions, with excellent form, for 4 sets.
Variations can be made depending on your fitness level. For example; if you cannot complete 1 full press up. Instead try completing 4 tuck in/kick back out movements before the vertical jump.

The Burpee workout really does push your body to its limits.

Before starting any new exercise plan, make sure you consult one of our highly qualified Personal Trainers.
