I can’t help but be hell bent on figuring out how to master the exercise
“The Burpee” There are a lot of tough exercises even some made up, but
the toughest one is by far the burpee.
I’m talking about the way “The Guinness Book of World Records” defines the
exercise ( No Pushup) and I’ve watched the master at Burpees- Paddy Doyle.
Paddy Doyle has the current world record at 1,840 in 1 hour, that is an amazing
amount. Most people couldn’t do many more then 20 of these bad boys.
The Burpee in my opinion the Burpee is the king of conditioning exercises. There
are a lot of “fitness gurus and arm chair trainers that like to give a better variation
of an exercise like throwing in a pushup with a burpee or standing up and doing a
pullup. Yeah, you can make almost any exercise harder by using a different
variation I just think these guys like to show how smart they are.
If you want to test yourself try the burpee. It’s harder then running or squatting,
just think of the records for other exercises in 1 hour, squat thrusts over 3,000
bodyweight squats almost 5,000, pushups over 3,000, alternating squat thrusts
almost 3,000 and the Burpee only 1,840. Not even 2000, This has been known
as the toughest of circuit disciplines, and in my opinion it is.
The Burpee will test you in a big way, the fat will drip off your body, The Burpee
will excelerate your metabolism. And you will burn crazy calories. Don’t believe
me do Burpees for 1 minute rest 1 minute and go again. Just try 2 minutes and tell
how you feel.
There’s a saying squats are the total body builder and dips are to the upper body
is what squats are to the lower body, if that’s the case the Burpee is the king of
If I could only do one exercise it would be the burpee, it works a ton of muscles
burns fat and will whip you into shape in record time.
Some guys will tell you they can do 50 pushups or 50 bodyweight squats but
ask them to do 50 burpees and it won’t happen.
Using your bodyweight uses so many different muscles at one time
that you will build great musclar endurance, and that’s the type of strength you
need for athletics, MMA, martial arts, wrestling, boxing and everyday life.
Strength without conditioning is useless. But it’s tough to be conditioned and
not get strong.
