Please critique my workout routine.
I don't have the funds for a gym and I don't want to go outside in the winter due to bad air in my state and also don't want to slip and fall on the ice. So my workout routine is:
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays: Doing SimpleFit. On Thursdays and Saturdays: I will be doing only Burpees for time. I will only be doing Burpees with the pushup variation.
I'm really out of shape. I'm thinking it's a good foundation to start with. What do you think?
I haven't ever really looked into simple fit but assuming it doesn't have you doing any crazy heavy weight lifting (Which is awesome I just recommend starting with a coach!) it sounds good! If you are 'really out of shape' then ANY moving around is good and burpees are in my opinion probably the best single exercise if you were going to pick just ONE thing to do. So go for it! See where it takes you in the next several weeks and then adjust your program if you need to!
I would love to have a coach. But I can't afford one right now. Maybe later down the line I can. Thanks for the feedback Noctiluca.

If you are really out of shape doing simplefit and two days of burpees will really hammer you. If i were you i would start with simple fit and maybe add some easier conditioning one day a week. things like jumping jacks, mountain climbers, bear crawls
I love doing burpees though. I just worked out an hour ago and I just 20 burpees. Out of breath but after that I felt pretty good. I feel like I accomplished something. That's how I feel when I do burpees. Also I did two minutes of jumping jacks to warm up.

yeah, that sounds pretty good to me.
