who likes burpees?

nobody.

burpees. the one move we all love to hate. we do them because we know they do a LOT for our fitness.. but i don’t think i have heard anyone profess their undying love for this dreaded little move.

not sure what a burpee is? well, then you should be glad that you’ve never done one. (but, really, you should probably do some. they are quite beneficial.) here, let me show you… here is a vid of my GPP gal pal, lil’ kate, busting out ONE HUNDRED BURPEES in under five minutes. uhh.. yeah.. you read that right.

she’s a machine. i am not sure i could do burpees for that long without stopping. just, no.

7 minute burpee challenge  No equipment? No excuses.  At Home WOD7 minute AMRAP - Burpees  GO.

we do a lot of burpees at my gym. heck, we even did a mile of burpees last october to raise money for charity. some call it sick, some call it inspiring. call it what you want… but i think we all agree we don’t love burpees.

in fact, we might even hate them.

well, guess what?

burpees hate you too.

and here’s a shirt that says so.

the trainers at GPP designed this shirt as a comeback. because what does everyone say when they hear it’s time to do burpees? “I HATE BURPEES.” and this tshirt is their reply.

I do CrossFit and I actually like burpees when we do 10 or less in a row. Even if there are lots of rounds, I can handle that many at a time. Any more and I am miserable! I hate overhead squats more than anything though!

I hate lunges, specifically propulsion lunges from BODYPUMP. Burpees are fabulous compared to those dumb lunges.

I crossfit and I hate and SUCK at the snatch. I’d rather do a hundred burpees than a snatch. I’d bitch about those burpees but I’d still do them over the snatch! LOL

I dread pull ups the most!
