Weighted Burpees?

Did burpees the other day with a 10 lb DB in each hand. Wondering if thats even worth doing, or should I just stick to BW burpees, and do more reps?

Sounds challenging. Regular burpees are hard enough for me, I'll be interested in the responses.

Well considering the weight would do nothing for the pushup portion, you are basically just adding 20 lbs to a jump. If you are looking for a variation, just do tuck knee burpees.

If you insist on weighted burpees I'd probably recommend using a weighted vest.

Honestly IMO there's really no reason to add weights to burpees anyway, they are more of a conditioning exercise and I'd be willing to bet that you (or 99%) of the population couldn't do 5-10 min worth at a decent pace without feeling winded.

Did you mean to write couldn't?

Because I get winded after 1-2 minute of burpees.

At the risk of derailing my own thread, can any of you recommend a good (and affordable) weight vest?

I briefly looked into getting a weight vest a couple months ago. Everything that I found was extremely overpriced. In general a vest filled with sand should NOT be $50. They have some out there that are $300+. How crazy is that? people can buy a weight vest that costed more than my bench, rack, 350 lbs of weights, and dumbells combined.

If you can find one for maybe $20 - $35... In my opinion that would be worth it. It's definitly a good piece of equipment to have. Maybe I'm just an overly frugal person though.

AS has been mentioned...BW burpies are enough for most people. I would only use a weight vest with burpies under two condtions. A. training a VERY fit fighter. B. As part of a fight specific circut (5 exercises, 1 min each) for a guy who was fighting a bigger, stronger opponent, who liked to clinch (say Randy). The purpose of condtion B is to get him used to carrying the other guys weight. I would also have the same guy do weighted drills (say, sit outs, bridging) with the weigh vest.

A workout I did 2 weeks ago consisted of 10 burpees with a 20lb vest each minute for ten minutes so 100 total in ten minutes.
