There are videos. I know I've seen them, can't remember where.

If it's the same as a "reverse burpee" then I think this is what it is:

squat, roll backwards onto your back/shoulders, roll forward onto feet (preferably w/no hands), stand up/jump up and clap overhead

Re: Inverted Burpee

I thought it was a spring up off of your back, kung fu style, then a wall handstand.

There are lots of video demos if you search.

Ooooh . . .that doesn't even sound pleasant! LOL! Yeah, wasn't real sure-we've done "reverse burpees", so that's what I went off of
