Burpee to Pull Up [Video]
22 Fri, 2011 § 6 Comments
One of my new, favorite moves.
Though the jump gives you some help with the pull up, this is still exhausting.
I like my burpees to be more dynamic than this & have a little more “pop” from the push up into the squat. I also want to work on jumping from the squat into the pull up more quickly, rather than pausing to establish my footing. Dave recorded me doing 8 of these after my workout last Sunday, so I am going to blame the lack of “oomph” on fatigue. 😉
Every day we push ourselves we get stronger, right?!
I like to do 3 sets of 10, which is fatiguing. Even more fatiguing is doing these as intervals like below.
Tuesday Morning HIIT
- Burpee to Pull Up : 10 sec rest; 30 sec max – 6 rounds = 4 minutes
- Hamstring Curls on yoga ball: 30 sec; 10 sec “rest” SWITCH TO Ball Pikes: 30 seconds – continue alternating 6 rounds = 3 xs each = 4 minutes
- Side Lying One-Arm Tricep Press Ups: 20 sec alternating each arm, no rests – 6 rounds = 6 xs each side = 4 minutes
- Hanging Knee Raises: 20 sec then Mt Climbers: 20 sec (no rests) – 6 rounds = 6 xs each = 4 minutes.
