This is an advanced exercise involving several muscle groups at the same time: the shoulder and arm muscles, chest muscles and leg muscles. The Burpees is therefore one of the exercises most often used by American Marines in their training, as a complete and efficient exercise for improving aerobic capacity.
Instructions Crouch down until you can rest your hands on the ground. Putting your weight on your arms, with a jump extend your legs. Your hands are parallel to your pectoral muscles. Keeping your elbows tight against your torso, and forcing your triceps and pectorals, lower yourself with your arms. Push yourself up again and with another jump, bring your legs back up to your body. Then stand up again. All the steps of this exercise must be done as rapidly as possible.
