Apologies if this an old idea. I spend a lot of time traveling and sleeping in hotel rooms. Instead of trying to get something done in the standard recumbant bike/broken treadmill hotel exercise room, I end up working a lot body weight calistenics in my room. I have found the 100 burpees for time to be an especially uncomfortable enterprise. For standardization I define a burpee with a kick back to low push up and a jump or squat leap at the end of the stand up/extension phase. PR to date 11:35. I'm not the smallest person I know at 6' 3"/210# but this seems like a good strength to weight and strenght endurance test. I wuz wunderin if any other CF road warriors had tried this little jewel.

Best regards,
Bruce

Bruce, this bounced up a little while ago but I definitely agree it is a neat little smoker. Think my last was around 8:30 with a press-up and a clap.

Nice work mate

Cheers, kempie

8:30 is impressive, doubly so with a clap. Something to work towards.

Cheers,
Bruce

For a twist, set up under a bar and throw in pullups. I do one pullup every 4 burps. I'd love to do more but it just becomes too crushing and I end up having to rest way to much. Any number will do, I spose.

Sweet, I love burpees. And all kinds of variations.
I've yet to really find one that can be done without any equipment or apparatus that can really work the abs, maintain rhythm, and that is simple enough beginners through intermediate can do. I tried them with a tuck or pike jump and it didn't seem to be all that. I thought the ab compression in the jump and in the kick out might do some.

The pushup part promises to be tiring.

Perhaps friday after coaching.

This morning I did 100 each with a pushup and a pullup. The pullup bar is about 8'-8.5' off the ground. The time was about 20 minutes, that left a lot of room for improvement.

Excellent work Tim! I've seen the height and diameter of the bar you mentioned; jumping up to it when tired had to be a bear. Jon doesn't believe in "normal" height and size pullup bars does he?? :-)

Just for giggles, I gave the pushup/pullup burpees a whirl using my 7' high 1" diameter bar. 50 in 8:14...jammed my fingers hard twice while in the 60s when I jumped up to the bar. I used my head for once and stopped to save my hand from further damage.

I'm lousy at burpees anyway plus I'm lousy at doing anything coordinated like jumping and catching bar....I'll try this one again sometime when my fingers can straighten without pain.
