200 Burpee Workout

Happy Friday.  I hope everyone had an amazing week and is ready for the weekend.  One of my friends posted an image on Facebook that said “there is no tired like end of the year teacher tired,” so true!  When May hits I am exhausted.  So I am really looking forward to the summer and spending time with my family and traveling.  I am also looking forward to train for the Spartan Run in June.  I have to be honest though I am really nervous.  This is so out of my comfort zone.  However,  I know that if you cannot complete the obstacles then you can do burpees instead, so I figure I better start adding more burpees into my workouts.  Who doesn’t love burpees? They are a full body strength training and cardio workout all in one!  Here is a workout we did in my boot-camp class on Thursday.  They loved it!  Well at least they did at the end.  I hope you give it a try.  

200 Burpee Workout

Warm Up (complete each exercise in the warm up for 30 seconds)   

  • Jog
  • Jumping Jacks
  • But Kickers
  • High Knees
  • Squats Side to Side
  • Alternating Front Lunges
  • Standing Toe Touches
  • Arm Circles

200 Burpee Workout

  • 10 Burpees
  • 10 Side Lunges Right
  • 10 Side Lunges Left
  • 10 Side Burpees (legs kick out to the side)
  • 10 Bicep Curls
  • 10 Wide Burpees (feet stay wide when jumping back and up)
  • 10 Squats
  • 10 Burpees (add a push up if possible)
  • 10 Rows
  • 10 Burpees with 2 Plank Jacks

Complete this 4 times in 30 minutes.  Try to move quickly from one exercise to the next.  I suggest a heavier weight for the strength exercises since you are only completing 10 reps.  Feel free to add in some core strengthening following the workout if you have time.  

Always finish your workout with a cool down and stretch.
