Burpees are fun, high-intensity exercises that target nearly every muscle in the body. And they're easy to do! Start with a squat with your hands on the floor, then kick out your feet so you end up in push-up position. Hop back into a squat, and then jump as high as you can and start again. Do 10 as fast as you can, and you'll feel the burn! Burpees are also endlessly variable. You can incorporate a push-up or, if you're feeling extra-ambitious, do them under a pull-up bar. When you leap, grab the bar and do a pull-up or two. Your body will be revving in no time!
