Your Burpees Suck

I’m not sure where this habit of clapping just behind your head while jumping two inches off the ground during a burpee came from, but I hate it. (cough) I’m not saying you’re not still breathing hard by the end, but I suspect it’s just to chase numbers, to be able to do more for the sake of doing more. I like to use burpees as a very explosive full body movement, high speed and high power, and that includes the jump. I don’t necessarily think you should be able to do a hundred of them in a row.

Anyway, here’s a video of some better ones, and some other advanced variations. Do them like this. Fewer, harder, in sets. And jump higher.
