Buck Furpees!

April 18, 2016

There is a list of exercises that get hated on for various reasons:

  • Deadlifts
  • Back squats
  • Bench presses
  • Overhead presses
  • Burpees

Oddly enough – those are all great exercises!  It’s just that sometimes, the movement is not appropriate for the individual.  For instance: if you can’t touch your toes, you might not be deadlifting at KDR.

Out of all of those, burpees are the easiest to perform and, I think, the one exercise that gets the most attention, both positive and negative.

It is a great exercise, don’t get me wrong!  You hit every muscle group, have multiple level changes and work on end range of motion at both your hands and toes among a whole slew of other benefits.

They just suck to do!  But, with no equipment and short on time you are hard pressed to find a better exercise!

Here’s a quick burpee build up video where we start with the easiest movement – squats then progressing all the way to a no legged burpee.

The video is about 7 minutes, and we talk briefly about the benefit of exercise during chemotherapy treatment.  Thank you Dr. Court Vreeland from the Vreeland Clinic for being my model in this video!
