Burpees are one of the best total body exercises out there - arguably, the very best in terms of muscle groups used and calories burned. While they make many people cringe and most avoid the exercise like the plague, it’s also become a badge of honor, of sorts, to be able to claim that you “love burpees”. This 100 Burpee Workout is for those brave and boastful souls who are not afraid of the 100% effort that this awesome total body exercise requires.
Considering the relatively brutal nature of burpees, and the number of repetitions in this workout, this routine is really not all that bad. You will definitely break a sweat, but you’re not going to feel totally wiped out by the time you are done. In fact, we’re even relatively nice to you in this routine; we go very easy on you with the tenth and last set by doing 10 reps of our “Quiet Burpees” so that you can start slowing down your pounding heart before you move onto one of our cool down and stretching videos.
There is no warm up or cool down included in this video. We jump right into a 100 Burpee Workout; there are ten different variations and we will do ten repetitions of each. We are kind to you in that we give you a whole 25 seconds rest in between sets of 10 so that you can give your full blown effort to each rep. If this feels like too long of a rest to you, by all means you are welcome to step up the challenge by jogging in place during the rest intervals, or even doing something as high impact as high knees, or, extra burpees. On the flipside, you can always hit pause for a longer rest if you feel like you need it.
How to use this Fitness Blender Burpee Workout
Use this as a quick pick me up and to get your metabolism reeling, or tack it onto a longer cardio session, or, a strength training routine for either the upper or lower body.
How many calories does this burn?
We estimate that this high impact interval training workout video burns 8-14 calories per minute. There are many variables that go into a caloric expenditure estimate, arguably one of the most important ones being the level of effort that you put into the routine; make sure that you push yourself as best as you can in order to be at the upper end of that estimate.
How often should I do this routine?
HIIT workouts should not be done more than four times a week as the body needs time to repair itself after such an intense effort. You can combine this with our strength training routines or do them on opposite days if you would like to workout more often than four times per week.
