One exercise to get a full body workout

In order to get a true full body workout you need to push your core muscles and cardiovascular system it highest point. There is a single exercise movement that will do just that with no exercise equipment needed… The burpee. There are many variants to this specific exercise and we will be talking about one of them today.

The burpee variant that we will be taking a look at is the 8 count burpee with a jumping jack on the ground. The steps will include the following:

1. Squat with your hands on the ground
2. Kick your feet back
3. Kick your feet out to form a Y shape
4. Bring your feet back together
5. Down into a push-up
6. Up part of the push-up
7. Bring your feet back under you
8. Jump in the air

I will have to warn you, this exercise is not for the faint hearted and will require a basic athletic skill level. But if you are looking for a exercise that will push you to your limit and give you a challenge of progressing further into your fitness journey, the burpee could be your exercise of choice.
