Doing them with the pushups this time as well, or just the jump?

Know how you feel, was really getting into doing them everyday and increasing the number. Now after being sick for ten days, will have to be starting all over.

Doing them incomplete seems like it wouldn't be a burpee. Squat/thrust/pushup/jump -- whole thing, no way around it, sadly....

I guess ask as the definition I see often of a Burpee, is without the pushup. Then the demonstrator states can add a pushup, or other things to make it more challenging. In some ways having the bit of a pause to do the pushup slows down the cardio I think a bit, but then gets more of a pump with the pushup. Use to do a bunch of just the squat/thrust -that is a smoker as well. I do like these Burpees though, as seems one can get a complete workout, in a short amount of time, just about anywhere.

How far did you get last time SOTB, until you hurt your back?

Anybody here make it all the way to 100 days non-stop yet?

Is this an approximate visual on your routine?

I think/thought we've had this discussion before. Burpees aren't rocket science -- they may have been around for a couple of hundred years.

BURPEES....

I did it back in early 2010. Took :56 off my time from 10:37 to 9:41. Not a fast time but fast for me!

Wait, so I'm NOT cheating because I'm not doing a strict push up? Awesome.

To each their own. But in essence, it is a 6-count exercise, culminated by a jump into the air, raising your arms and hands above your head and reaching as high as you can (well, for that jump).

I think the idea -- IMO -- is to do the exercise the best (strictest) that you can, without hurting yourself. IE, I believe that dropping to the ground and kicking my legs out in midair would hurt my shoulders -- I'm not doing that. I will consider it imperative to do a strict pushup -- but who is to say my burpee is better than someone else's?
