Burpees:
1. Jump as high as you can.
2. Placing your hands next to your feet, jump your feet back so that you end up in the starting point for a push up position.
3. Jump your feet up next to your hands again.
4. Repeat.

Most people say they hate burpees. That's just because they're hard. And that should in fact make you love them, not hate them.

Your effort strongly correlates with your results, so let's do our burpees properly!

Note: If you start to feel dizzy whilst doing burpees (due to low blood pressure or for any other reason), please opt for doing squat thrusts instead. You can find a video for them in the Fit as Hel exercise library.
