    Is wasn't spelled out in the FAQ, but are the sample routines of Burpee Conditioning good HIIT sessions (with running as a warm-up/cool-down)? Often we will do 3-4 rounds of that at the end of TKD practice.

    Burpees are one of the best conditioning tools I have ever used (next to tabata). No equipment needed is great too.

    I just started doing the burpee drills the other day. As of now, my fat ass can only handle 4 x 2 min rounds with 30 sec burpee, 30 sec jump as the intervals. My goal is to get to a 30 sec break between rounds by the end of next week instead of the minute I use now. I dunno how well I will be able to achieve that though.

    Holy crap, this is insane. Looks good though, I think I'll make this my goal. Maybe I'll start with doing 5-10-15-10-5, that should be good. Prepare for pain!

    You're a stud, dude.

    I think I'm gonna start an ultimate burpee routine, maybe the Mike Mahler variation (I can't say I've liked much else of his I've read).

    can you break down the steps to a jumping push up burpee?

    do you actually jump up when you do a burpee?

    stand with feet together. or shoulder width i doubt it matters.

    squat down and touch the floor

    kick your legs back at the same time into a push-up position

    execute push-up

    pull legs back under you at the same time

    stand up

    then just perform a regular jump where you swing your arms forward

    that's how i would do em. should be good enough.

    i would touch my stomach and then raise my hands above my head with a normal burpee when i stood up but that's kind of done in the jumping movement.

    stand, squat down w/hands flat on ground just outside your feet, kick feet back and land in a BOTTOM push up position, push up at the same time hopping back into the squat position w/hands flat on ground, spring up and leap into air w/hands above your head, when you land you will land into the squat position w/hands on ground and imediately sprawl again.

    There is no pausing and no isolated push up. The movement is like a push up/mountain jumper/sprawl/squat jump all in one compound movement. it is all compound movement and non stop.

    If i were to do the ones with the top push up position and isolated push up i would be a lot less exhausted and could get my burpee routine to below 11 and a half minutes im sure.
