Fitness people all over the world practice burpees on a daily basis. it is standard at mma gyms, bjj gyms and ccrossfit gyms. It is for good reason! Burpees are a simple but extremely effective full body exercise. Burpees are what i call a compound bodyweight exercise. This means that it contains 2 or more exercises combined together into one movement. In the case of the burpee, you are using your chest, triceps, shoulders, core and legs.
I use burpees at my gym often. But i am all about variety. I feel variety is essential in keeping your clients interested. So even though burpees are an awesome exercise, me and my clients get bored of doing them all the time. This is why i have developed a lot of different variations of the burpee into what i call bodybuilder combinations. This video contains some of the variations that i use at my gym SoCal mm and on my upcoming dvd Kettle-jitsu Revolution. Try out them out for yourself and see if you like them! Burpee variations
