#BaptistHealthy In Motion: Burpee Breakdown

Burpees are considered a cardio-strength exercise that increases your heart rate while building muscle. Burpees involve your entire body, particularly your arms and shoulders. This powerful exercise is an excellent warm-up because it engages many muscle groups, while raising your core body temperature and getting your whole body ready for a workout.

“You can do burpees several times a week, as long as you have strong and healthy shoulders,” says Chantis Mantilla, Ph.D., community health manager at Baptist Health South Florida. She offers additional tips on how to perform the perfect burpee.

Tips:

Part 1: Stand to Floor

Part 2: Plank-Push-up

Part 3: Squat Jump

You should aim for 2-3 sets of 10 to 15 repetitions each.
