Can you handle it? Are you game?! Take my burpee challenge and find out what you’re really made of
Okay, here’s the deal: Lots of guys focus primarily on their chest, arms and (sometimes) back. But the legs usually get neglected. A powerful leg workout is one of the foundations of a comprehensive workout program – and so, I want to share one of my favorite exercises.
(And when I say “favorite”, I really mean that I hate burpees. They are tough. They are painful. But like I always say, if you dislike a given exercise, that probably means you need to be doing more of it. We like what’s easy. And burpees definitely aren’t easy.)
First, watch this video to find out what burpees are:
Now for the challenge: Beat me at burpees. I kicked my ass today by doing 3 sets of 20 burpees. That’s 60 burpees in total. It may not sound like a lot – but trust me, it is. I, Davey Wavey, challenge you to 3 sets of 20 burpees. The prize? Satisfaction, I suppose. And stronger, more powerful leg muscles.
So bring it on. Can you do 3 set of 20 burpees?
Of course, if you can’t – don’t feel bad. It’s really hard. But it’s something that you can work up to. Now you have a goal. Do what you can today, and slowly build over time. You’ll get there.
Let me know if you’re able to do 3 sets of 20 burpees (60 in total) in the comments below!
