Full-body bodyweight exercises
50. Standard Burpee
The love-hate relationship of every Crossfitter!
Not coincidentally, burpees are a staple exercise in a lot of Crossfit workouts as you can see in the posts here:
The burpee is an amazing full-body aerobic exercise!
Start from a standing position and go down into a push-up, lowering yourself on the ground until you fully lie down.
From there press yourself up, jump back into a standing position again and finish the movement with a small jump.
In case you’re looking for some more proof of why the burpee is a great exercise, check out this video that explains the skill transfer of the burpee.
51. Burpee with a push-up
If you want to make your burpees a little more difficult, add a strict push-up.
52. High-plank burpee
If you’re looking for the easiest burpee variation – this is it!
52. Burpee Box jumps
Of course, if you’re missing a box, you can always use a stable chair or your couch/bench.
This box jump adds quite the intensity to your regular burpee.
One of my absolute favorites!
53. Burpee high jump
The burpee high jump is another great way to raise your heart rate and boost the intensity of your workouts.
54. Hollow hold to jump
Core strength and heart rate boost in one!
While holding a hollow position, rock yourself to your feet and jump up before lying back down and into a hollow hold again.
55. Boxer run
This one gets much harder than it looks! It’s a great finisher for any workout!
Focus on fully stretching your arms and quick movements.
Keep the same intensity throughout the whole duration of your set.
56. High knees bodyweight exercise
Another great finisher and heart-rate booster!
Much like running on the spot but lift each knee as high as possible!
Try to keep the same height the entire time – don’t slack!
