Instructions

From a standing position, squat down low, placing your hands palm down on the ground just outside of your feet. Keep your hands in place and quickly hop both feet straight back to go into a push up position. Quickly hop your feet back under your body, then jump straight up as hard as you can, dropping back down into the low squat as soon as you touch the ground. Repeat quickly until done with all repetitions.

Purpose of the exercise

The Level 2 Burpee is a great total body move that focuses on strengthening and toning the legs and core. In this more advanced level, the extra jumping motion increases the speed at which the body burns fat and calories. The jumping motion combined with the plank also offer an extra component of strength and toning for the legs. With high repetitions in quick succession, this is also great for challenging your cardiovascular endurance, specifically your anaerobic threshold. This is another great addition to a home workout because of its use of multiple muscle groups, giving you more calorie burn in less time. Once you have mastered this version, move on to the Level 3 Burpee.
