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.
