I think most people have a love-hate relationship with burpees. They love how strong they feel after they do them, but hate actually having to do them.

Burpees work your entire body at the same time, which not many exercises can boast. They combine strength and cardio for a near-perfect exercise.
I share most people’s feelings about burpees, but I am always up for a fun challenge to make them a little more tolerable, so I thought I would put together a 30-day challenge where I start with 1 burpee and add 1 each day for a total of 30 days. Which, if my math is accurate, is a total of 465 burpees.
If you struggle with burpees because they do require some impact on your wrists, you might want to consider getting a thicker yoga type mat to do them on to offer you some cushion. A gymnastics mat would be even better! But you can do them without it, I find them easier than pushups as far as the stress on my wrists.
So what are you waiting for, take my 30-day Burpee Challenge now!
