4th Annual Burpee Challenge

4th Annual Burpee Challenge

Let’s be honest, does anyone actually LOVE burpees?! Hate them or love them, the burpee is a functional exercise that builds overall strength and challenges your cardiovascular system all at the same time! While they can be a soul crusher, what IS great about burpees is that you can do them anywhere or anytime and they will work your entire body for an overall workout!

This is a FREE event for ANYONE who wants to challenge themselves. BUT if you want to WIN and get a KILLER Endure the Burpee Challenge Tee/Tank Shirt…we ask you donate $20.00 and Team Endurance will donate part of the proceeds to St. Jude/Compete for a Cure!

This 30-day challenge is for anyone at any fitness level. We want everyone to participate! Here are the ways to complete burpees at all levels:



Level 1: Basic Burpee (recommended for beginners)
1. Stand upright, feet shoulder width apart.
2. Squat down.
3. When you reach the squat position, reach your hands down to the ground and step back one leg at a time into a plank position.
4. Drop down into a pushup (it’s okay to let your belly/chest to touch the grown). Push back up.
5. Step your legs back in and resume squat position.
6. Stand up (or jump up if you’re feeling strong!) and clap your hands above your head.
REPEAT!

Level 2: Beast Burpee (recommended for fastest times)
1. Stand upright, feet shoulder width apart.
2. Drop down into a squat.
3. As soon as you reach the squat position, bring your hands down to the ground quickly thrust out your legs out behind you so you’re in a pushup / press up position.
4. Drop your chest/stomach to the ground and push back up to the pushup / press up position. (Optional: do a pushup/press-up).
5. Quickly jump your legs back in and get back into the squat position.
6. Immediately jump as high as you can. Both feet must leave the ground and hands must go above your head. Once you land, get back into a squat position and repeat the steps above!
