Move of the week: Jump Tuck Burpees!

Most of us have a love-hate relationship with burpees. And by “love-hate”, store I mean “hate-hate”. They are HARD! However, ailment the truth is that burpees are an awesomely effective exercise that delivers both full-body strength conditioning AND major calorie burn. You don’t need to buy any equipment and you can do them anywhere! A few seconds of burpees will convince anyone that burpees are a major butt-kicking workout. Tuck-jump burpees are even more intense! This is a still from my Full Body Tabata Blast workout – getting some air on the tuck jump!

To perform a Tuck Jump Full Burpee:

1) squat down and put hands on the floor in front of you
2) kick your feet back and do a push-up
3) Immediately return to a squat position and explosively leap up as high as possible from the squat, while simultaneously bending your knees and tucking your feet up. Repeat, moving as fast as possible.
