I'm on the fence about this youtube video because it's almost pornographic but there are some really good burpee ideas. I love the burpee get down, roll over on the ground, burpee get up. That breathing drove me crazy.

Interesting... I definitely had to mute that as the breathing drove me nuts! I drown out my own breathing with music, I sure don't want to listen to someone else's.

New ideas are always good.

It was on the ground and he made it look so easy. I agree with you-it's not something I am going to do. I was more worried about breaking a wrist or hand but you are right-the should action must be brutal.

Did he start with the BOSU in his hands, or was it on the ground? Either way, I'm not doing it.

Jean, some guy at the gym was showing a bunch of us how to fall on a bosu and do a push up a few weeks ago. It did not look like something I want to do- I don't like anything that even remotely seems like I could get hurt. I don't like to do handstand push ups without a spot because I am afraid of smashing my face or falling over on my back (not that I can even get that far vertical!). lol

I actually learned a few variations on the burpee this weekend during that cross-fit class. My glutes are really feeling those things today!

lol Jean, we both must have had burpees on the brain. I posted about them on another board yesterday.

We did 70 burpees as part of my cross-fit class this weekend. Man it was hard! I had to break mine up into sets of 10. It is definitely a challenging move.
