Everyone loves burpees right? Well if you don’t, you should! There is no other exercise around that delivers so many powerful moves in such a short time! That’s why this tabata workout packs a fat burning punch!
This Burpees tabata workout will challenge your core, shoulders, legs, and chest if you add a push-up. What more can you ask for?! This is my go-to move for a full body workout and as you will see, it is the star of my workouts a lot of the time.
I subscribe to the camp that says burpees are a simple movement that does not include a push-up (unless you want it to). It’s just the way I roll. I enjoy the added benefit of the push-up at times, but I like to keep that in my back pocket for special occasions. Today is one of those special occasions!
Burpees Tabata Workout:
20 seconds work | 10 seconds rest | 5 rounds
- Burpees with push-up
- Squat, side kick right
- Squat, side kick left
- Tricep Pushup
- Jump Squat
- V-sit, Sit-up
Tabata Workout Tip:
- When doing your first set of squat kicks to the side, find a place on the wall to focus on and aim your kicks to that spot. Strive to kick to that spot for the entire workout!
- To do the V-sit, sit-up movement: Alternate sitting up into a V-sit hold and then a full sit up. If this is too difficult, you can either hold the V-sit or do slow controlled sit ups!
What are your thoughts? Burpees, do they always have to have a push-up? Should I call my burpees something else if it doesn’t include push-ups?
