    I like, I can see much suffering in these, specially tabata'd.

    And I'd probably exaggerate the crunch more, and jump higher. I don't know if he mentioned this as I don't have sound here at work, but that would make it even more torturous.

    Cool. It's like an upside down burpee.

    Exactly. I was always wondering if there could be a reverse burpee. I guess so.

    this is what I get for hurting my hand...
    just as soon as I did it, I started finding hellish hands-free conditioning stuff to help make up for it.

    I just tried this holding two 25 lb DBs. :icon_twis

    It is like a hybrid crunch/get-up/thruster. Of course I only did 3 reps, not a whole Tabata workout. Good stuff.

    I think I know how to make this even worse: alternating crunchees and burpees. I have a feeling this has the potential to actually trigger heart attacks.

    I just tried these at the gym. It took me three tries just to get back to my feet w/o using my hands and that was only for one rep. Plus, once I was standing, I was all off balance and falling all over the place.

    I'm really impressed by how easy you make them look in the video.

    I just tried doing a crunchees to burpees alternating each time. It had a surprisingly nice/smooth flow to it.... it'll get your heart pumping :icon_lol:

    I've been playing around for about 6 weeks with different kinds of crunch to standup exercises, first with someone holding my feet, then with dumbbells on my feet, now this.
