Fitolution – Pre Fun

Hello my friend,

Welcome to The Fitolution.  How fit are you?  Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced enough for everyone’s favorite exercise . . . 

Everyone loves a . . . Burpee

Oh stop!  I can hear the sighs, boos, “I’m not gonna do that!” at my house in the bubble.  [You know who you are.]

Yes, a burpee includes many muscles.  One of which is the core.  Keep it tight and strong and you will see the gains.

You can do anything you put your mind to.  Limitations?  There’s always a modification.

INSTRUCTIONS:

BOSU Burpee w/o Push-up

  • Begin in a plank position with the BOSU directly under the shoulders and the legs out behind the body, dome facing down.

TARGETED BODY PARTS:

Instructions –

Step 1
Starting Position: Stand with your feet together and your arms raised in front to shoulder height, with your elbows fully extended. Depress and retract your scapulae (pull your shoulders down and back) without arching your low back, and “brace” (engage your abdominal/core muscles) to stiffen your spine.

Step 2
From the same starting position, step out sideways with the right foot (both feet remain pointed forward) to the 3 o’clock position. Once the foot is firmly placed on the floor, begin to bend at the hips, pushing them backwards while simultaneously shifting your weight over that same foot. Continue shifting your weight until your tibia (shinbone) is vertical to the floor and your knee is aligned directly over the second toe of that foot. Your left leg should be near, or at full extension while keeping the right foot flat. The heels of both feet should stay flat on the floor.
