We all know this quarantine will come to an end eventually, but in the meantime we need to make sure we stay sane and fit! We miss our gyms that’s for sure but we have to at least try to maintain in the mean time!
We've posted a few home workouts, and will continue to do so to help you switch things up. If you want to see those, simply click here.
So let's talk about one of our favorite/least favorite exercises; BURPEES.
How many should you do? Five to 10 is a good starting point. Then, follow it up with the same number of push-ups, squats, and mountain climbers. Repeat several times for an easy total body workout.
You can also do this with situps, pullups, lunges, planks, wall sits, etc. Just pick a few exercises and get after it!
If you're worried about missing out on cardio, add a jump to the top of movements like squats or lunges to kick your heart rate into high gear. Those explosive, plyometric variation, especially when combined with a circuit of other exercises, can give you a good workout even without a lot of time or space. One of the things I like to add in is jumping up and hitting something. If you have a low ceiling or tall door frame, that'll work perfectly. It gives you a target to jump up and reach for.
Burpees are a great way to push yourself to the limit, with limited equipment. Add them in to your next at home workout, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
And remember... Buck Furpees!
