Trial By Burpee Workout


Hi Everyone!

Today’s workout is quick and challenging! In between each exercise I completed 5 Burpees. It was a great way to get my heart rate up, and keep my body working hard. I round took me just under 10 Minutes. It can be repeated up to 3 times. 

This workout is a great fat burner, and all over toner. I definitely felt like I got in a full body workout. I only went through this workout once today, but I followed it with a 3.5 mile run outside. I am planning on doing a modified version of this workout in my bootcamp class tomorrow night. :) 

I hope you guys enjoy the workout. I am going to be sharing more about my competition experience, so be sure to check back!

  1. Before seeing this workout i had decided i would come up with a circuit that included burpees between each exercise…then i saw this workout you did yesterday and thought, perfect! Just got done. Took me 17:30 to complete 2 rounds and that includes a 1minute break between rounds(kept the clock going). Thanks for your workouts! Also, congrats on your placing at the npc comp! You look amazing!

  3. i loved this workout! I made it a bit more challenging for myself by adding jump roping for 1 minute in between each exercise. I didn’t feel like running outside today :)

    Thank you for kicking my trash today with this workout! I really appreciate that you have this site and share all of your wonderful knowledge. I just started doing your workouts a few days ago and I love it so far.

    Hi, Melissa. Thank you for posting this workout, Day 5: trial by burpees. I’ll do it tomorrow, first thing in the morning.
    Question, in exercise number 3, “rock the boat”, how far down do we go? You don’t bring your shoulder plate down to the floor, right?
    Hopefully I don’t feel this in my lower back.
    Thank you! :)
