Hate Burpees? Let's Modify Them


Are you one of those people who gives excuses about not doing high intensity interval training because, well, they are hard and you don't think you can jump around that much? Here's some good news: you can modify your workouts to reduce the intensity but still get some good points. An example of one of these monster exercises is the burpee. Ugh! Killer.

If the motion is too much for you at this level and you'd like to work your way up to this full-body exercise, trying slowing it down and going step by step. You'll still get the same benefits, but at a lower intensity.
