How to Do Burpees for Beginners
We'll teach you how to do burpees - even if you're a beginner!
Start by standing tall, with your feet shoulder-width apart.
Lean forward and bend your knees, placing your palms flat on the ground more than shoulder-width apart. Keep your arms straight.
Shift your body weight forward so your hands are stabilized and can take the upcoming weight shift.
Kick your feet straight back until your body is in the plank position.
Perform a pushup. (If you've never performed a pushup, try to go down as far as possible and bring yourself back up. Check out our guide for How to Do a Pushup the Right Way.)
Once you return to the plank position, jump your feet back up towards your hands.
Lift your hands off the ground with your knees still slightly bent. Bring your hands up above your head, reaching towards the sky.
As you bring your hands above your head, jump straight up into the air as high as you can.
Once you land, slightly bend your knees and start back at step 2.
Repeat until the timer expires.
