The burpee: A burpee is a curious combination exercise. You start standing up. You then bent down so that your hands touch the ground. You support yourself on your hands and then quickly shoot your legs backwards to land in a sort of push-up. Then, you draw your legs in to jump up as high as you will go.
You don't need to follow a rigid routine with these exercises. You get to creatively mix them up each day. Whatever you do, though, you need to make sure that you warm up well before you work out in earnest.
