Friday Exercise: Burpees

Pretty much everyone dislikes burpees.  Stickie, to tell the truth, does not enjoy the process of doing them, but she likes the results in her body.  There are many variations of the exercise, but Stickie is sticking to the basic version for now.

She begins standing with good posture.  She raises her hands over her head and jumps into the air.  Upon landing, she jumps her feet out behind her into a plank position and does a pushup.  Then she jumps back to a standing position.

Someone doing burpees for the first time may find that sets of five are perfectly sufficient.  Stickie usually does sets of ten.  People who want to use an interval training or tabata style can go for as many as possible in a minute.
