Benefits of Burpees
Benefit #1 Rapid Fat Burning
Burpees is one of the most effective exercises to burn fat faster than doing any traditional cardio workout.
In fact doing any body weight circuit burns fat 9 times faster than doing long steady state cardio.
You'll burn fat faster because burpees is a full body workout working your legs, shoulders, chest, arms and abs.
After the workout you'll experience why is known as the "after burn" effect which is where you'll continue to burn fat hours after the workout.
Benefit #2 Strength
Burpees will develop a certain level of strength as you are working the entire body.
This will help you in the future when working with weights or any other style of resistance training.
Benefit #3 Endurance and Conditioning
Burpees will dramatically increase your overall endurance and conditioning.
While doing direct work on your abs is beneficial, burpees are an added benefit that will make your abs shredded and make you core strong.
You'll be able to tackle any challenge that comes your way when performing any type of future endurance training activities.
