What is an X-Burpee

I do not know if this exercise exists already or if you can find it anywhere else.  However, it is an exercise I am not quite fond of, but it really works the full body.  You will see this exercise in much of my routines.

X-burpee really stands for extreme burpee.  To perform this exercise, you drop into a squat, thrust your legs behind you, and do a pushup.  Then you shoot your legs back into a squat position and jump in the air as high as you can.  We will eventually see this exercise on our How-To Videos page.

    That’s how I instruct my students to do a burpee. The push up is always a part of it. One of the differences from a squat thrust. Have you tried a spiderman push up or spiderman push up plank?
