#45: Challenge of the week: burpee jacks

I like to give myself a weekly challenge in order to stay motivated. There are 7 levels for every challenge, so everyone can join in. Feel free to modify the challenges so they fit your personal needs. Remember always to listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard but keep moving. Doing only these challenges is not a balanced way to get or stay fit. If you have doubts about exercises, or your body, always ask a specialist for advice!

Burpee Jack
You know the Burpee. You know the Jumping Jack. Now it is time for a new level of both of these exercises. I love it. I actually love it better than the regular burpee or the regular jumping jack. Why? I feel it is faster, less impact on the knees, less stressing for the shoulders and still very well in getting the heart rate up, getting the strength to build and getting the core to work it hard! Make sure to break it down like you would with a regular burpee when you have any issues going on. With a weak back I would not recommend this particular exercise at all.

level 1: 70 reps
level 2: 140 reps
level 3: 210 reps
level 4: 280 reps
level 5: 350 reps
level 6: 700 reps
level 7: 1000 reps
