The burpee
This is one of the more complex movements found in a BodyAttack class. I will break it down for you and also provide a high intensity option to test your skill.

Standard option:

  1. Start with your feet wider than your hips. Toes and knees slightly out.
  2. Push the hips back and down into a squat.
  3. Place your hands on the floor.

4.  Jump your feet back into a plank position maintaining the hands under the shoulders whilst keeping the back straight.

5.  Then jump your feet back into a squat, push the hips back and down and push through your legs to stand up.

Mid-high intensity option:

Execute a triceps push-up all the way to the floor for step four. Keep your elbows tucked in.

If you want to make it more intense add a tuck jump.
