Start loving the burpees: a month's challenge to get fit

There is no exercise more hated and beneficial at the same time, it has as many detractors as followers, I talk about the famous burpees . I tell you its benefits (which are many) and a method to practice them progressively, so that little by little you can get the taste. If you want to practice them, stay with me and start ...

  1. What are the burpees?

It is a multiarticular exercise (several muscle groups are mobilized at the same time), and one of its main objectives is to raise the heart rate and temperature. The relative strength and the strength resistance are also worked on, which makes this exercise ideal for activating the metabolism and the burning of fats.

The relative strength is the type of force calculated according to the weight of each person. For example: 5 kgs for a person can be little, but for another I can assume 80% of its strength if we look at the individual weight. The mockery works that kind of force because it's about moving your own body.

The strength endurance is the ability to maintain movement for a specific period of time at the same speed of execution. It is the total objective of the exercise.


2. Why do burpees?

The reason is as simple as that of a single exercise you will get fit. Its benefits are:

  • When you do not need material , you can do it anywhere.
  • It is ideal to make them as warming or End of a continuous race .
  • You can train metabolically . Using the Tábata method or extending the repetitions from time to time.
  • It's a good cardiovascular and coordination training , one of the basic skills you barely train. It requires the neuromuscular concentration necessary to mobilize the whole body in an explosive manner.

3. How are they done?

The complete exercise consists of 4 main phases, take note of each of them, they are very easy!

  • Small squat or squat down your hip and touching the ground with your hands. In this phase a very common mistake is to bend the back and not the knees, which makes us reach the ground but put our lumbar health at risk. Start loving the burpees: a month's challenge to get fit
  • Rest your hands on the ground and stick a jump back in the iron position . You will know that it is good if you have your shoulders to the hips at the same height. Now you decide if you include a background or not, it depends on the intensity you want to give it.
