HOW TO WORKOUT LIKE A BADASS: BOX JUMP BURPESS

Apparently people hate burpees. There are countless fitness memes floating around Instagram and Facebook about how burpees are the seventh level of hell or one of Satan’s testicles. I don’t get it to be honest. I could be a fitness masochist for all I know but I happen to think burpees are like being licked in the face by a puppy or someone walking up to you and handing you a plate of pad thai. They’re amazing.

So that being said, you should learn how to do a normal burpee. Meaning “suck it up princess” or “man up” and go pro level on these. And THEN you can try the box jump version. Really simple. Sprawl out, do a pushup and instead of just jumping upward, jump onto a box. Jump backwards, slight hop and back down. Easy right? Not if you find the tallest box you can to do these. Then you’ll be hurtin. Takes focus, and a good pair of legs. Get to the gym, try them out. Impress your friends and become the cool kid in school. You know the drill.
