    I secretly love burpees too! I don't tell any cause they'll think I'm crazy lol. I did a workout where we had to do a set of 40 burpees, then 30, then 20, then 10. There was other stuff in the middle but I was excited to do so many burpees :bigsmile:

    I am with you! I used to hate them because I found them really hard. Now that my fitness has increased I love doing the things that I used to hate (because I really struggled with them). This includes burpees, push-ups and plank. Now I like to challenge myself to do more than I could before.
    I used to struggle to do 5 push ups and yesterday I did 100!

    I did 103 traveling burpees today, they are easier than the traditional ones - I don't think I could have done them all if they weren't the traveling variety.

    Didn't know what a burpee was. Youtube has a beginner version which sounds good for newbies like me:

    I love them too and there are loads of variations you can do:

    Burpees with a tuck jump, burpees with 2 'superman' poses whilst in the plank position, one-leg suspended burpees (as someone else mentioned), burpees with 2 punches after the jump, burpees with a medicine ball.... I could go on.

    They totally rinse the calories too.

    Perhaps the reason I love them so is because they are literally the only exercise I can do more of than my fiance!

    That being said...our gym had a 100 burpee challenge. Each class you were in, you'd do 100 burpees...hurt so good.
