100 Burpees for Time

100 Burpees for Time

I know.

This is insane.

It really is.

And, even if you don’t already despise burpees (which, chances are you do!), you will likely despise them after this. That’s what happened to me… This exact workout was on the programming at my box a few months ago and I walked in excited and walked out totally whooped! I vividly remember feeling winded at 30, and panicking a little thinking “I’m not going to make it!” Of course I did but two days later I could hardly move my arms! Sign of a good workout, or insanity? You be the judge! 🙂

Yesterday, Karlye and had a similar reaction to this workout we did yesterday (another one from the programming at my box):

Of course neither of “enjoyed” the burpees, but we did enjoy getting in a really good workout in less than 10 minutes! That’s the beauty of burpees, right? No equipment needed, explosive and the perfect OMG-my-heart-rate-is-up movement, to make even the shortest workout feel tough!

So, how about giving it a try? If 100 seems way out of your league, try just 50 or 25. Don’t forget to time yourself, too, so you can retest in a few months and see if you’re any faster!

Do you hate burpees? 

Have you ever done 50 or 100 burpees for time? 

Hey girl!

      YES! Let’s do it! Does 3:30 work for you? We’re moving into our place that weekend but I’m sure I can sneak away for the fundraiser! It looks like it’s gonna be tough!

          I need to look at the levels but on first glance I noticed push press, wall balls and pull ups! That’s going to be a shoulder/arm scorcher!
