Burpees. The word itself may bring fear to your mind and there is no fun way to do them. However, the Gympass team has been learning to love them and below are a few reasons why.

You become stronger

Burpees will develop strength throughout your entire body, and the great thing about them is no muscle is left untouched. You will get stronger as your body will begin to fatigue and you carry on – that is when you know the progress is being made!

You can do them wherever you want!

Burpees work every muscle in your body, with no equipment, anytime, anywhere, and for free! You can do them in your bedroom, at the park, and even on holiday!

They improve your endurance 

While all major muscle groups are being pushed, burpees also increase cardiovascular endurance. As you move all areas of the body quickly, you will find your heart rate rapidly increasing which will improve your endurance threshold and anaerobic endurance.
