Hate Burpees? Why not cut them in 1/2?

You hate Burpees? Stop it. It’s worthless to hate something so efficient. Sometimes though, depending on what you’re training, a full burpee can be too much.

Of course you will be winded, use all of your core to stabilize while half-burpee’ing, but the best part is that you’re working hip flexibility by getting your seat as low as your knees when you come forward and shoulder stability as you move in and out of plank.

Half-Burpees are a great way to get your heart rate up between lifting.

For example, let’s say you’re dead-lifting or squatting- the standing hop in the full burpee would exhaust your muscles by adding endurance training in the middle of strength. That would be silly and a waste of energy.

Do 20 in a row if you can. Stay strong with an even pace.

If this is a new move for you do 3x of 10x
