I know what you're thinking, “I am so over these stupid, fad, fake, quick workout tricks that never get me the summer body before summer starts.”
And all I can say is … SAME
I hate the posts that give you false hope that you will have “6 pack abs in just 6 weeks.” Stop with all the miracle fat loss secrets that they will give up for the very vey low price of $28.99.
Just Shut Up.
But here I am to tell you what is the most beneficial move that you can add to your workout that will strengthen and tone everything you have ever wanted. It is also free. It also totally sucks.
And the workout is … BURPEES!
Ahhhhhh yes. The ever tough, never gets easier to do, makes you hate everything burpee. Body builders and fitness gurus alike believe burpees are known to help develop strength, power and anaerobic endurance. And yes you cardio loves, burpees count. It incorporates a squat and a push up which is what makes it the worst ,yet best, body weight workout.
Heres how to do it:
Begin in a squat position. After squatting as far as you can place hands on the floor in front of you.
Kick your feet back to a pushup position.
Preform the push up!! If you do not have that strength for that yet remain in the plank pose for a second.
Immediately return your feet to the squat position.
Leap up as high as possible from the squat position. And I mean LEAP, keeping your hands in the air as you do it as well.
And that is a burpee. Hate me all you want now, you will soon see a difference in the amount you can do, and your own personal strength. I told you this wouldn't be the miracle, easy fat burning post, but you will see results I promise!!
Happy Burpeeing…or be as happy as you can be while burpeeing!
