Workout Quickies: Burpee Burner

Workout Quickies:  Burpee Burner

Heyyyyy, Everybody!  As I was typing the “hey” out, I started to crack myself up.  I often do this, and lately, it’s while I’m in public.  Last week, my friend Jenn introduced this web series to me called,  Whine About It with Matt Bellassai.  (NSFW)  You’ll get the “hey everybody” reference once you watch these.

You must watch, btw.  Omg.  So hilarious.  You’re welcome.

Anyhoo, today we’re talking about quickies.  Workout quickies.

Who doesn’t love a quickie?  A workout quickie.

No one, that’s who.

Who doesn’t love burpees?

Almost everyone, I think.

That’s why it’s good to wham bam and be done with them and know you got a total body workout, am I right?

Workout Quickie #1:  Burpee Burner

As with any exercise I recommend on my blog, please check with your physician before performing.  Burpees are extremely challenging, so if you’re new to them, I advise you to start slowly and build up to this circuit over time!


I have included examples of some of the exercises for your reference!

180 Burpees

“Frog Hop” Burpees 

Half Burpee (Alternating single arm for an extra challenge)

One-legged Burpees (You can omit the plyo jump to modify)

    I find that if I need to get a quick workout in I go for a walk or do some yoga stretches. I sometimes find that simply stretching gives me the oomph I need/ want to get from a workout without the ‘huff and puff’.

      Sometimes the quickie just has to be breathing — so right, Jen! I also love walking in general. I don’t have much choice but to walk everywhere these days so I think that’s why I love short HIIT workouts! Also, I’m weird and like burpees. Haha!
