Burpees 101: Everything You Need to Know About How to Do a Burpee (Infographic)


If I had to choose on exercise to rule them all, there’s no doubt in my mind that the burpee would be it.

Burpees have it all: they’re cardio, strength training, balance, plyometrics and functional fitness all rolled up into one, incredible, mind-blowing exercise.

Sure, most people hate burpees. And if I had to take a guess, you probably do too. But burpees pack so many awesome benefits, they’re totally worth it.

That’s why I’m declaring burpees the official exercise of 12 Minute Athlete.

Because if I could only get you to do ONE of the 50+ exercises on the site, it would be burpees, hands down.

To celebrate, I’ve created a handy little infographic so you have no excuse not to do burpees at every waking hour (just kidding):
