10-Minute Burpee Mash-Up

burpee mashup
My love of burpees is well documented. Some would go so far as to say that it’s borderline unhealthy, but I find it’s best not to listen to those people – #hatersgonnahate and all that.

Burpees are an excellent, total body movement that just happen to be A WHOLE LOT OF FUN (#bonus). And because they recruit such a large number of muscles, you’ll find they’re also a big calorie burner and one hell of a cardio workout. They’re not for everyone (you really need to make sure your form is decent or you’re risking injury) but once you’re over the awkwardness of the movement – and the general hatred of the pain – you’ll come around to my way of thinking.

This little workout is simple – 5 burpee variations – 2 rounds – 10 minutes. But I guarantee you they’ll be some of the harder minutes of your life, in the best possible way. As always, this workout is adjustable, based on your needs. Increase rest time when you’re starting out, take a break between rounds etc – whatever you need to get through it. As you start to feel more comfortable, simply adjust the other way. Voila! A simple, incredibly effective 10-minute workout you can do in the comfort of your own living room.

Happy Monday beautiful Team!

    Love your 10 minute workouts Jess! I’ve been doing them at home for a few weeks now. Quick, easy and makes me feel like i’m getting healthy without spending hours at the gym!

  2. What a great post! Sometimes half the challenge is fitting in the time to train, so ten minutes? no excuses! Follow our blog for fitness challenges, discussion and motivation at https://wearedumbelles.wordpress.com
