  2. Bernard says:

    Hi Louise,
    A burpee is a whole body exercise that utilises nearly all the muscles in the body to complete which makes it one of the best body weight exercises to complete!

    To complete a burpee,
    1) From a standing position drop your hands to the floor
    2) Then kick your legs back so your in a pushup position,
    3) Return your legs to the starting point as quick as possible
    4) From this position jump as high as you can
    5) Repeat

    I have also added the burpee to the basic movements page with an image to give you an idea what it looks like.
