Target area(s): full body (cardio)

How to perform a burpee:

Start with your hands under your shoulder and your knees bent with your feet under your hips.

Quickly kick both feet back into a plank position.

Then just as fast bring your feet back to the starting position under your hips.

Jump up into a standing position, bringing your hands above your head.

You’ve done 1 rep.  These are meant to be done fairly quickly.  Complete 5 sets of 10 reps with a 20 second break in between sets.
