7/9. Don’t let your metabolism slow down – Do BURPEES!
Full disclosure, this one is pretty difficult, and people will often say how much they hate doing burpees… Even though it has a funny name.
However, this type of exercise is a fantastic workout that’ll get your whole body moving, helping to improve muscle strength and overall endurance.
- Stand upright with feet shoulder-width apart.
- Put your arms in front of your chest, and squat down; when you reach the ground, jump your legs out behind you to form a plank or push up position.
- Do one push up, ending with your arms fully extended.
- From here, jump your legs back underneath you (get them as close to your hands as possible), and from here, jump straight up with your arms up over your head.
It sounds complicated, but that’s one complete rep. Start with 3 sets of 10 reps each when starting out.
