I Love-Hate Burpees

(adapted from Green Eggs and Ham)

You do not like them.
SO you say.
Try them! Try them!
And you may.
Try them and you may I say.

Sam!
If you will let me be,
I will try them.
You will see.

Say!
I like these burpees!
I do!! I like them, Sam-I-am!
And I could do them them in a boat!
And I could do them with a goat...
And I will eat them in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
They are so good so good you see!

So I will do them on a box.
And I will do them with a fox.
And I will do them in a house.
And I will do them with a mouse.
And I will do them here and there.
Say! I will do them ANYWHERE!

Burpees are an activity I love/hate. I love that burpees do not lie, I know when I'm getting stronger because I can do more of them with less cursing. Burpees can be done anywhere and the variations are numerous. Burpees make my trainer smirk. They make me sore.

Just for fun describe your variations of the the dreaded burpee or post a pic of places you've done them...maybe you've done them in public!

Burpee basics

Burpees are an awesome, calorie-torching, strength-building, full body exercise.

Later in this post, you’ll learn why you should love them. But first, you need to know how exactly to actually do a burpee.

Just follow these simple...

The secret is in your breathing. Try to breath from the diaphragm and not the upper lungs only. So many people huff and puff almost to the point of hyperventilating, relax, slow it down a notch and breath, deep breaths and I guarantee you will...

Contributorgold Sheila G You can do them in the hallway, you can do them in the den.
Do some watching t.v., ... what rhymes with "den"?
Anyhow, it's sunny outside so I hope my fellow TS challenge junkies get out to play. Whatever/wherever you go, do some burpees, take a photo and post it.
