Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Many bodyweight training programs include very advanced bodyweight exercises and one those bodyweight conditioning exercises is called the Burpee. Mike Whitfield, a trainer in Atlanta, GA who has lost over 100 pounds, understood this and decided to release a video demonstrating the modified version of the burpee. After creating the popular program called “Bodyweight Torch,” Mike wanted to share some exercise videos using bodyweight training and conditioning circuits along with modified versions of the advanced bodyweight exercises.
“The burpee is one of the most effective bodyweight exercises that target the abs, chest and glutes all in one exercise. However, this total body bodyweight exercise can be difficult for some people. When starting out on a bodyweight training program, it’s always a good idea to start with a conservative approach and that’s why I wanted to share the modified burpee exercise with our readers over at bodyweighttorch.com. The modified burpee is a burpee exercise but both the pushup and the jump at the end are removed. This way, this total body ab exercise will still get anyone amazing benefits, but the intensity is taken down a little bit. Even with the pushup and the jump removed, the modified burpee exercise is still a great way to improve core strength and improve conditioning as well. I use a variety of burpees with different intensities with my online and offline clients depending on their fitness level. So if someone is just starting out with burpees, I always recommend to remove the pushup and the jump and then progress from there. The modified burpee is one of the best total body bodyweight exercises that can be included in any bodyweight conditioning program,” said Whitfield.
