Burpees are considered a great workout that can be used by different individuals today. Doing non-stop burpees for an hour can burn 563 calories for a 155 pound individual. But of course, you have to make sure that you are doing the burpee correctly.
How exactly should you do it? Named after Royal H. Burpee, an American Psychologist who invented the workout, it is a combination of squat, push up and jump squats. This makes a full body exercise. In fact, it is included in some of the most popular workouts online today like the M100 (burpees, squats, jumping jacks, mountain climbers).
Other than a way to lose body fats, one of the most important benefits of burpees is endurance. This is why it is used in different endurance workouts of professional athletes from basketball players to football players.
