    It’s a full body exercise. Unlike a bodybuilding exercise that focuses on a specific muscle, the burpee , aka a squat thrust, is an exercise that focuses on a movement. Burpees can be used for conditioning, as well as agility, and power. Very challenging, and very good for the entire body. Perform at your own risk. 😉

Have something to say?
