Power, speed, coordination, maximum energy expenditure, time efficient.
General goals for any good workout. Hence why I’m a fan of one of the world’s most detested movements, the dreaded burpee…
The thing is, say you’ve become proficient at your body weight, are looking to incorporate some heavier loads, but don’t want to lose the skill sets you’ve developed, or the high intensity endurance you’ve developed. There’s a thousand ways to do that, high intensity weight training is a very complex, very advanced area of training. So, in order to transition in there, I’m going to build on some skills we’ve already covered.
So begins, the Burpee Combo Series. We’ll be getting more and more complex with these combos over the next few weeks, so be sure that if you decide to try these out, make sure you’ve got a serious hold of one before moving on to the next. This week we’re building off last week’s movement, the hang squat.
I’m using a standard bar with practice plates on the in order to not disrupt the view of the movement. Choose a weight that is challenging to you. I’d probably go up a bit on this in a real workout, but that’s just me. Be honest with yourself. Start slow and build up.
