How Burpee Finishers Can Take Your Bootcamp To The Next Level!(Video)
Guest Post Funk Roberts
As a Bootcamp Fitness professional there is one exercise that I injected into every single session, because it was paramount in getting results for my campers.
The exercise I am referring to is the one that trainers LOVE and campers HATE…the BURPEES!
Burpee Finisher Workout
You have to agree the burpee is the “Ultimate Metabolic Bodyweight Exercise”. This compound exercise works almost every muscle the body in one short sequence of movements.
Targets the heart and lungs to the max to increase cardio.
And forces the body to work far above the capacity to take in, transport and utilize oxygen and, subsequently anaerobic conditioning will improve.
Including this exercise into training sessions for your camper is a MUST if you want to produce RESULTS!
The problem is, burpees done over an over again will get boring, monotonous and become the most dreaded aspect of your bootcamp session…if it already isn’t!
Just say the word “Burpees” and 9.9 times out of 10 your campers will quickly become deflated, dejected, and disappointed, something you don’t want to see.
You know how effective burpees are for you clients, but the challenge is how can you continually include them into your training sessions without your clients suffering from BURN OUT or worse leaving you for another trainer.
I faced the same problems with my bootcamp and in fact started to lose clients because the same old burpees weren’t fun or even becoming a challenge.
So I came up with a way to include burpees into every workout without getting negative reactions.
Not only did I reenergize my bootcamp but I revitalized the burpee exercise and make it fun, challenging while leaving my campers wanting more.
I created my Ultimate Burpee Finishers, which were used at the end of each session. The twist was each Finisher used different variations of burpees.
Here’s how it works:
The campers would perform 5 burpee exercises done for 45 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds rest one after the other for 2 complete rounds for a total work time of 10 minutes…that’s it!
The key is having different burpee variations to challenge, excite and change up the workouts each time.
