A Modern Twist to the Original Burpee

This new variation of the Burpee takes the exercise to new heights.

Eric Cook is a performance coach and personal trainer at T3 performance in Avon Lake, Ohio. Using the NOVA FTS, the creative Cook has added an extra challenge to the traditional Burpee, making the exercise an entirely new experience.

In the video below, you'll see how Cook has revamped the Burpee by adding a jump and hold onto a kick plate. His variation adds more upper-body work and grip strength to the exercise. If you want to try this, you don't need the exact same equipment, but you will need something sturdy that can hold your weight when you jump and hold onto it.
