Burpees and Sprints

Burpees are great for fat burning.

burpeesThey can be modified or intensified to suit any fitness level. The great thing about burpees is that they’re more effective for fat burning compared to long slow cardio like ‘jogging’.

If you haven’t checked out my Challenge Burpee program, then it’s time you did. I mean, who doesn’t LOVE burpees right?

Well, it may take you a bit of time to fall madly in love with burpees, but let me tell you, you can’t get more bang for your buck  than you can with the good ole burpee 😉

Now, burpees are much like sprinting.

My giant friend, Dennis Heenan, is a sprinting expert, (he’s in the video with me.). His definition of sprinting is anything done at a high intensity for a short burst.

If you love burpees (or are learning to love them), you’re gonna love what Dennis has to offer.

He’s got a super fun sprinting program you can check out here.

If fat loss is your goal, don’t discount sprinting in your program. Dennis breaks down sprinting, it’s not JUST running around a track at top speed. Seriously, many of us just aren’t up for that. Remember what the definition of sprinting is according to Dennis. In fact you may just do more burpees/mountain climbers/squat jumps etc. that traditional sprints (which is a good thing when there’s 4 feet of snow outdoors like in my winter climate).
