Your video will begin in How to Do a Burpee Posted on Tue, 24 June 2014 in Burpee Videos by Wodnation 428 Views 0 0 Hi, I’m Kelsey Lee and today I’m going to show you how to get your burpee on, alright? So I’m going to demonstrate kind of tutorial style and then I’m going to go nice and slow so that you can get in the groove. And then we’re going to pick it up. Okay? We are starting here in squat position, okay? Nice and flexed on the toes, put the weight in the heels, press the floor with your feet. Alright? So starting here, squat thrust. Kick it back. Don’t stick your butt in the air. Chest to the floor. Back up. Frog jump. Jump squat. Okay? Makes sense? Slow and controlled, no elephant actions, we’re not stomping. We are going to absorb that through the heels, the toes, all the way through the quads. Okay? So now I’m going to show you guys what we’re isolating, what’s really being activated, where you should be feeling it. Not all on your knees. So squat position. Remember what’s next is squat thrust. So kick it out. Controlled, nice, and fast. Explosive. Feel that in your core. If you’re sinking down, exhale and pull the abs up. Knock it down in the front. You shoulder and your triceps are also being activated, okay? From here, stabilising you. We are going ahead and do push-ups. Touch the ground. Come back up. Feel those triceps and those shoulders. And also the chest, of course. Okay? So now we’re going to bring it back up. Frog jump style. Also the calves as we come up into a squat jump. Absorb it like I said earlier. right through here, the calves, plus the feet, okay, the core. You guys good? We want to try this a couple of times slow. Let’s go for it. Squat position, kick it out, push it up, bring it in, and jump. Try it again? Squat position, kick it out, push up, bring it in, and jump. Okay? Perfect. So now that you have the technique down, and remember technique is going to take precedence over anything else. We don’t want to hurt ourselves. It’s not worth it. So let’s go ahead and start. Follow along if you want. So here I go. Notice my exhale. Perfect. Alright. Give it a shot yourself and see how you do. Alright you guys, you did awesome on today’s burpee tutorial.
