Progressive Stand Up Challenges – Burpees

In Bodyweight Mastery by admin1 Comment

This video is the third in a series of progressive stand up challenges, where I cover regressions and progressions to be able to do various bodyweight movements.

This video covers some possibilities with the basic burpee.

Prerequisite: None

Standard: Burpee. Squat down, jump the legs back to bottom of a pushup position. Then jump legs back and stand up.

Regression: Instead of jumping the legs back and forth, you can step them forward and back as needed. Makes the move less explosive, but is easier.

Progression 2: Add a full pushup.

Progression 3: Add a one arm pushup.

The previous videos in this series cover:
