  • What is a Burpee without a push-up or jump?

    just going down to a plank position then back up to just a squat. Is this considered some form of a burpee?

    want to try the burpee/kettlebell swing ladder from a kettlebell topic a few days back but i can't jump = but can squat and my right shoulder is a little sore but i think just putting a bit of weight on it through the plank will help alleviate some of the soreness.

    The standard burpee is just the squat thrust and standing up without the jump(but arms tight by the sides). The jump burpee adds the jump, and the bast**d (as it was known at fire brigade training school when I went in 97) was the pushup > squat thrust> to jump, and jolly fine fun they are too :-)

      I think its just a squat thrust. But we call it a sprawl in Krav.
