Until I started investigating crossfit, I thought a burpee was just yet another childish way to describe a belch (Wikipedia’s kind enough to offer a minute long recording such an event here, though this You Tube video is much better).
Turns out someone tried to get creative and renamed a squat thrust. I recognised the move from school PE.
I recognised it.
That’s not to say I’ve ever done it.
For me, the absolute beginner, the first video demonstration helped truckloads. The second served more as inspiration. I’d love to hang off the ceiling. You know, as you do.
So I followed their lead.
I learned how to do a burpee.
And did 10 more.
At the time, it kinda sucked.
Right now, it feels good.
I’ll let you know how it feels in the morning.
