What Is A Burpee?
The burpee, a full-body exercise, is one of the cornerstones of the Burpee Biathlon™. You start in a standing position, drop down into a squat, kick your legs back, perform a push-up variation, return to a squat, and finish by jumping explosively with your arms above your head. View a burpee video HERE.
Burpees engage multiple muscle groups, including the legs, core, chest, shoulders, and arms. Your chest must fully touch the ground on each rep, your feet must come off the ground on each jump, and your hands must be above your head on each jump.
Alternatively, if you are unable to safely perform a burpee, you can do any of our elevated squat thrust variations shown HERE. No matter what your fitness level, you CAN participate in the Burpee Biathlon™!
