You Want Me To Do HOW Many Burpees?!

16 Jan

True statement from a BLAST participant!

The BLAST program picked right back up last Monday and I finally got around to doing the workout. I’m a BIG believer in never putting a client/participant/friend through a workout that I’ve never done before, but the other trainer designed the workout so I knew it was doable.

We incorporated AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) last session and the participants actually liked it (gasp)! It was challenging enough for their respective fitness levels; they didn’t have to worry about staying on beat or keeping up with the others. And trust me, when they say they like something, we do our best to incorporate it differently ever session!

But..this session..they (AND ME) have to do 30 burpees! 30 BURPEES? HAVE YOU EVER DONE 30 BURPEES? Consecutively. Not 5 here, another exercise, 5 more, another exercise, and so-on.

One after the other after the other after the other..until you hit 30. That’s tough. Hard. But believe it or not, doable! Now I’m not saying no one can rest (quickly) then get right back to it, but it’s such a huge accomplishment when you reach 30!

So I challenge you..

30 burpees. Consecutively. In under 2 minutes.

Ready? Go!

    The title of your post made me laugh. My sentiments exactly. I’ll do about 10 in row before moving to something else, and returning to them afterwards. But 30? Hmmm . . . I might be up to at least trying this challenge!! 🙂

      It’s the up/down movement that trips me up!! A great challenge though 🙂

    Burpees and I have a love/hate relationship for sure! 🙂

    Your post title really resonated with me. I think this every time I’m in a group fitness class where we do a round of burpees! It’s kind of like a “burp” — in that it feels unpleasant in the process, but you feel relieved afterward!

      This is awesome! I couldn’t agree with you more. Definitely a love-hate relationship with burpees!

      You know I did! Just because you designed the workout, I know you had my best interest in heart 🙂
