Burpee Variations

I'm just wondering if anyone knows any particularly deadly ones...
Searching some old threads, I found:
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA5HzQQfOD8&NR (Safe; a lot of jump direction variations)
- the "Slurpee" (ball slam + burpee)
- burpees where you hold dumbbells in the push-up position for a clean & jerk rather than a jump

There's also:
- burpee box jumps (I love these... It'd be fun to add a backflip off the box, but I lack the skills.)
- burpee pull-ups
- burpee muscle-ups (Tried these, but tree roots got in the way of the burpee under my rings.)
- burpees with punishment reps (eg. "For every time you stall before completing 100, do 5 pull-ups..." It's fun.)


Any others I'm missing out on?

Re: Burpee Variations

www.bodyweightculture has an amazing burpee variation video, in fact they have two.

I believe the link is w/f safe. However, it is constantly changing and has a forum.

Make sure you have good back flips before you try this though and know your limits.

Re: Burpee Variations

My favorite is the burpee snatch with either dumbells or a barbell. Some guys like wearing a weight vest but that slams the crap out of my joints.

Barbell (with plates and stuff) burpee squat snatch = WTF burpee
Barbell burpee squat clean and jerk = WTFO burpee
