    Yay! So glad to see some posts! I managed to do 2 sets of 15 today. I did one set in the am and one after dinner.
    Add me if you two like: who doesn’t want more mfp buddies! 🤗
    I am an old hat at both mfp and burpees. Dropped 60lbs but then I tried other things which just didn’t work in the long run, so I have returned to my roots. Time to build some strength, increase my mobility, and drop some lard along the way 🤞.

    I’ll add you @SammyDee2015 . I have been focusing on weight loss with a treadmill but I’ve hit that plateau. I’ve been trying to add on bodyweight exercises and apparently burpees hit every part. Just wish they were a bit more beginner friendly.

    I have my 3yr old granddaughter for the weekend, so we did burpees together. So fun! Did the whole set of 30 in one session yesterday afternoon but it took 20 minutes 😆

    30 burpees in one set this afternoon. Trying 2x30 on Monday. ( not all at once. I am not that crazy) 😆

    On Saturday, I started trying to jump my legs in and out of the plank. Jumping them in was easier than out for some reason. Not sure if I just wasn't getting my balance right or I was psyching myself out. Some are still a bit wobbly but I finally was able to do all 20 without walking my feet today. Now to get that push up in.

    Do you do the 30 non-stop? I still take a few deep breaths in between every burpee so I don’t get winded. I do separate cardio workouts, so I figure doing the burpees slow should still be okay just for the strength training aspect?

    I do 30 in a row, though I do rest at the standing position whenever I need to. Which is often. 😆 And yes, as a cardio & strengthening move , I keep it separate from anything else by a couple hours.
    Managed to do a set of 30 at noon and one after dinner on Monday 😊

    So on Tuesday I tried to do half burpees quickly, my form was all over the place and I kind of put too much impact on my knees. I took Wednesday to recover a bit and went back to my slower modified beginner burpees again today.

    Dec 10: 25 half burpees
    Dec 11: Rest day
    Dec 12: 25 modified burpees

    Good job getting it in Pisanee! 🤗

    I did none yesterday but today I did a 30 set in the morning before work and 30 just now. Since they only take me each under five minutes I don’t really count them as true exercise, tho I am rethinking that- my heart rate was thru the roof! 😆

    Just checking in to say not one burpee has been performed since my last check in. Think I have lost my desire to even try them!

    I know the feeling. I’ve been a bit fatigued and sore from some other stuff and have dropped back to my sad beginner burpees. Trying to work my way back up again.

    Dec 13: none
    Dec 14: none
    Dec 15: 10 barely burpees
    Dec 16: 14 barely burpees

    No bloody burpees- will the month ever end so I can stop baring my in- awesomeness? Or- better yet when will I just start doing them again?! 🙄
