Burpees - Best Bodyweight Cardio Exercise for All Levels

by Monica

Burpees are one of the best bodyweight cardio exercises around for fatloss, endurance, and core stability. Check out 6 very different variations that all work for various people of all fitness levels.

If you're looking for ways to tweak your workouts for increased fatloss and to prevent boredom then be sure to try all these burpees and pay special attention to the last burpee variation in the video.

This is a great example of how combining two exercises with a fun piece of equipment can transform a simple exercise into something more fun and more challenging.



BTW, one thing you will probably notice is that I'm terrible at pushups (this was pointed out by one of my youtube subscribers). Many women and many men even those who are fit are not very good at pushups. It's not an exercise many of us choose to do often, which is why it's so important to modify any exercise in any workout to your fitness level and your needs so you can still burn fat without getting frustrated or injured.

Great Post!
by: Andi R.

Having just nixed my gym membership in an effort to be frugal I am on the lookout for cardio excerises. I have been run/jogging but 25 and below temps plus wind can sway even the most deticated to stay inside where it's cozy. So this is great. Thanks.

at home bootcamp madness
by: Monica

Hey Deb

Thank so much for posting. As always your comments are greatly appreciated : )

I think at home bootcamp workouts are insanely popular right now because people are into saving money and time.

I totally get it when a client says they don't have time to come in 3 days a week even for 30 min. sessions. It takes 30 min. to drive there, 30-60 min. to workout, another 30 min. to drive home plus it can cost anywhere from $20/hour to train with a group or $60-$80 to train one on one. The majority of the population just doesn't have the time or the money right now.

That's why I started this site and I'm so happy when people post here and tell me that they're actually using the workouts and tips to get fit at home on their own. That is the most important skill I try to teach all my clients believe it or not. Even if you have a gym membership or a trainer knowing what to do on those days you're not with them is so important.

3 hours a week with a trainer or instructor vs. 165 hours a week on your own: I think you better know what you're doing those 165 hours a week if you want to be healthy and fit, right! : )
