Burpee Surprise (mashup)


Daily Extras - Add 15 reps per exercise!


Workout Notes: 

  • It's HELLth week. Try doing the "extras." (rookies ignore)
     
  • Had to do a mashup version of "burpee surprise" and "II." We did a lot of pushing yesterday. It'll be good to give your chest and triceps a break. We don't need to step all the way away from the pushers though. Notice we are still popping for some shoulders. 
     
  • Please note we are asking for a High Sumo with a KB today instead of a bar. Also note the weight of the KB.
     
  • This is the easiest of our burpee workouts.  Somehow putting another movement inside of a burpee makes it way easier. Stringing them together back to back is what makes them hard.  The first 25 are rough. After that - it's smooth sailing.
     
  •  Vets, if you want more out of this, leave the burpees for the end. They are harder at the end. Even though the rest of this is pretty easy.
     
  • Keep neutral spine on those PCs. Re-set deliberately after each burpee. 
     
  • Here are a couple of thoughts on burpees:

Better burpee box jumps (easier this way)

How are you doing this week? Rookies, your impressions? Those of you who have been through this before, what are your impressions? Easy stuff? 

My Impressions: It's nice not to be as "dog awful" sore as in years past. I liked especially the "lemonade" portion of yesterday's workout. In terms of full disclosure, I didn't do the Monday workout - yet. I plan to get after it on Saturday. I will do it. I will ...
