Spice up your burpees

Spice up your burpees

Add some spice to your burpees.

It’s no secret, we like cadence exercises. Why? Because there’s no where to hide, you can either do it, or you can’t. And there’s no bonus for speeding through, as if it’s some achievement that you’re done before everyone else.

Cadence exercises separate the herd, because its instantly obvious who’s trying to skate by - and they know they’re exposed too.

We use the Maelz App for our cadence stuff (on the App Store, look it up, no affiliation, just a good app).

Spice up your burpees with a cadence, set beep at 4 seconds.
  • Start position is with your chest on the ground.
  • Beep, explode up, jump as high as you can, return to start position.
  • Rinse repeat.

Miss one cadence? That’s fine, wait it out. Miss two? You’re done.

They don’t need to be pushed or motivated, they need to be controlled.

Strength, stamina & skill. They’re the three vital components in being hard to kill. Being fit is hard. Being strong is hard. Being equally fit & strong, near impossible. Being highly skilled is good, but lacks lethality without the other two. These are not mutually supportive concepts, and they’re exceptionally hard to plan and train for. To a good standard that is.
