If you have ever heard of a Bupree, then you KNOW the pain and agony that comes with it. If not then consider yourself lucky enough to NOT have to do them ANYMORE! Making burpees easier on you is something not many people know about.
I have found an exercise that is just as effective as a Burpee!
Burpees Made Easier On You!
Ever since the first day of lab, in college, when we were “experimenting” with exercises the Burpee was one that has always been at the top of my list with the title of that category being VERY DIFFICULT.
I get asked all the time by my clients…
Do burpees get easier?
The sales person in me says to tell them YES, but the empathetic side (which is my former fat kid in me) says to tell the truth, which I do. The answer is Yes AND No. IF you have lower back pain or have an injury to your lower back then you should steer clear of this exercise. Anything like neuropathy may in fact get worse with this exercise.
Also joints that hurt worse will NOT heal with the impact from a true burpee. I really do think this exercise that I am about to let you in on shows you how to make burpees more efficient.
Now, I have also had clients ask me how to make burpees harder too, if that is you all you need to do is email me at [email protected] we can go over how to do that.
Lastly, before we get to the fun and easy WOD for today, be careful if you do look up what a burpee is and try it for the first time. You could easily be doing burpess wrong for quite a while and that can be both painful and damaging. Most people want to be doing burpees correctly right away. It simply takes doing burpees everyday to help build strength and endurance. There are MANY more benefits to a bupree AND this other exercise I am about to reveal to you!
Ok, I think I have lead you on enough. Here it is…
It’s called a Full Body Extension. It is just as hard as a burpee, but gives you WAY less impact. Watch the video below and you will see exactly what it looks like.
On top of that, here is today’s WOD:
