I LOVE Burpees

Yes you guessed it - our first workout for the week has burpees, and lots of them.  not sure if you can do a burpee??  Watch the video below for four versions of the typical burpee - if you come along to our sessions you will know which level of burpee you currently do so start there.  If not check the video and start with the easiest version, building up to the more challenging.  Take into account that if your bub is still very small or you have any pelvic floor weakness, knee injuries or pain, breast tenderness or generally don't like the idea of jumping at the moment to adopt the non impact versions where you walk your feet in and out.

Now you have watched the video you are ready for this weeks first do-at-home workout - elastics at the ready.

Squats x 10 with elastic
Burpees x 5
Push-ups x 10
Burpees x 5
Sumo Squat x 10
Burpees x 5
Standing Row with elastic x 10
Burpees x 5
Triceps dips x 10
Burpees x 5

Complete 5 rounds of the above for time - rest when you need to, spit water when you need to but the aim is to keep going throughout.  I'd love to know how you get on so feel free to post your results in the comments section or on Facebook.
