It’s all about conquering 125 burpees today. Yeah, we are that crazy! Start your timer for 1 minute intervals. Complete exercise 1 for the first 40sec of the minute. Then complete as many burpees as you can in the last 20sec of the minute. Remember how many burpees you completed. Then move to exercise number 2 for the first 40sec of minute 2. Again, complete burpees for the last 20sec of minute 2. Then complete exercise 3 for the first 40sec of minute 3 and burpees for the last 20sec. Keep a running total of how many burpees you are accumulating during the entire workout. Keep moving from exercise to exercise repeating all the exercises as many rounds as necessary to accumulate 125 burpees total for the workout. (To modify, perform a no push-up burpee). If you are extra crazy shoot for 150 total burpees.

The Goal 125
To modify the burpee, perform without push-up at bottom or without the jump.
Hover from side to side keeping your torso upright and staying low.
Support your body from your forearms and your feet with hips off ground. To modify, go from the knees.
1 ARM KETTLE SWING
Use your hips to swing your your arm up to shoulder level with the weight.
Stagger your feet slightly (not quite a lunge stance). Squat down with most of your weight on front leg. Back heel can elevate.
LAWN MOWER ROW AND PRESS
Row your weight as if starting a lawnmower. Then rotate the torso and hips and press the opposite direction.
Use your core to crunch upward on your side.
