What is a burpee?   Is it the gas you get after you drink a Slurpee too fast?

Burpee is the seed company I get my 'mater seeds from.

It's also a way to torture your body, as seen in this nifty video: Burpee

I hate blurpees, but I'm in.  

ETA, I'll see your blurpee and raise you a pull up.  In true arfcom fashion...do both.

You don't have to do them in a row, just through the course of the day

The last couple weeks would probably suck though, but think of the "turtle shell" you would develop.

I am in.

edit: do  as many as you can pullup/chinup or commando-ups after each burpee set

I'm in

This is bs. No way is this a way to get your body in any sort of well conditioned shape other than to be able to do more burpee's.

Anyone even heard of P90X? Sprints? cardio?

I'm afraid I don't concur.
Perhaps you sould stick to pilates untill you're ready.

Burpees are about THE best all around conditioning exersise.

Burpees are so cool- you can even do them in the SHU.

I decided I'm just going to start with 1 tomorrow, so I'll be 3 days behind.  I made an excel spreadsheet to track it.

Jenn



Girls are always welcome.



Thanks much! My husband (Sparky357) and 14 yr old daughter are now in also! It's a family affair...

...and might I say... have any of you checked out the workout videos for RossTraining that someone had listed here earlier on YouTube? Holy cow that guy is in shape! I was tired watching him!


Great to see a family entry!!!

Ross is an elite level performer.

He has good form, and for me, he provides inspiration to try harder after I see him crank it out.
Just go at your own speed.

I can manage 10 sets of 10, but it takes me awhile, and it's almost a NDE.
Are we posting our times???
