Developing an effective fitness routine is key to staying in shape and healthy. Whether you go to the gym or workout at home, it is important to know your personal fitness level and find exercises that challenge you to obtain the results you are looking for. I enjoy going to the gym and taking Les Mills Group Fitness Classes in order to push me further than I would on my own and hold me accountable to the other participants. However, some days I like to switch things up and do High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to target specific muscle groups. If you don’t have much time to workout, HIIT is a great way to spike your heart rate and burn calories quickly. One exercise I think everyone needs to add to their workout routine is the Dynamic Burpee.
Start by going into a squat position with your arms straight out in front of you.
Next, you will jump your feet back into a plank position.
Then from the plank, do a push up making sure to keep your back and neck in neutral spine.
Lastly, jump your feet in to where your hands are on the ground and jump straight up in the air with your arm stretched towards the sky.
All of these moves combined counts as one Dynamic Burpee. If you are just getting started, try doing five Dynamic Burpees in a row then take a 30-60 second break. Also, if you need to there is also the option of doing the push up on your knees. Once you get the hang of it, increase your reps to 10-20 Dynamic Burpees before taking a break.
This move takes total body control and strength to achieve , but once you master it, you will see greater results in no time.💪🏽
