Work Smarter, Not Harder

We all have that one exercise that makes us cringe whenever we see it in our daily workout routine. My experience with group training has lead me to believe that the burpee is pretty high on people’s cringe worthy list. The burpee incorporates several body weight movements (squat thrust, plank, push-up, vertical jump, etc.) into one complex strength & cardio building exercise. The linking together of multiple movements creates the potential for improper technique which can lead to potential injury. I found this tutorial video on how to modify the burpee in order to ensure proper form and save yourself from potential injury. Check it out!
