• Kick feet back into push-up position
• Return feet to squat position
• Jump up as high as possible and reach arms overhead

Time: 60 seconds
Coaching Points: Keep core tight and back straight // Push legs out and bring them back in as quickly as possible // Explosively jump as high as possible, fully extending arms toward ceiling // Perform exercise as quickly as possible
Dr. Moreau: Burpees is one of those exercises where he not only gets core strength and endurance, he gets mentally tough, because performing it last in the circuit makes it extremely difficult.
