Here are the ways you can perform your burpees and complete the “Endure the Burpee Challenge”:

Level 1: Beast Burpee

1. Stand tall, feet shoulder width apart.
2. Go down to a squat position.
3. As soon as you reach the squat position, quickly bring your arms down to the ground and thrust your legs behind you, putting yourself into a pushup/plank position.
4. Lower your chest to the ground (chest must make complete contact with the ground) and then rise back into the pushup/plank position. (Optional: Do full a pushup/ press up).
5. Quickly bring your legs back in (at the same time), bringing your body back into a squat position.
6. Come to a standing position with hips fully extended, jump as high as you can, making sure both feet leave the ground and hands are extended making contact above your head.
7. Once you land, get back into a squat position and repeat steps 2-6 above until all burpees are completed for the day.

Level 2: Basic Burpee
1. Stand tall, feet shoulder width apart.
2. Go down to a squat position.
3. When you reach the squat position, place hands on ground and extend legs behind you one at a time until you are in a plank position.
4. Lower yourself completely to the ground and then back up into a plank position. No push up necessary.
5. Step in one leg at a time until you are back in a squat position.
6. Come to a standing position with hips fully extended, jump as high as you can, making sure both feet leave the ground and hands are extended overhead making contact with a “clap”.
7. Once you land, get back into a squat position and repeat steps 2-6 above until all burpees are completed for the day.
