Burpee Training, 2 month recap


After completing 2 months of training in which I performed 3 workouts per week of only burpees I have found my aerobic fitness levels to be as high as I expected. My test was the FireKracker 5k on the 4th of July. Up to this race I did run occasionally, but never more than [...]

Burpee Training Week 8, 6/29/2018


Burpee training week 7 recap. I have taken that "stair-step" up in my burpee ability. We are 3-4 weeks into a surprisingly easy chunk of workouts. That was not the idea when these workouts were written but I have adapted very nicely. Next four weeks will have to be a little tougher! With the [...]

Burpee Training Week 7, 6/19/2018


Week 6 results. Solid week. Everything completed as written and felt strong through it all. A few weeks ago I really struggled with the Long workout. I have a feeling that adding one minute of 12 burpees performed every :05 seconds every week will eventually lead to a time/amount of burpees that I will [...]

Burpee Training Week 6, 6/13/2018


The three workouts were very manageable. Up to this point every long piece makes me a little nervous of being the first one to end the streak. This 14 minute one was no exception. However I never felt like I was close to not being able to continue. I finished feeling like it was [...]

Burpee Training Week 5, 6/5/2018


Tough week! The long 13 minutes nearly got me! I did not think I was going to be able to complete it until I was 5 burpees away from the finish. I knew there would come a long workout that I would not be able to complete but I hoped it would be a [...]

Burpee Training Week 4, 5/29/2018


Unfortunately week three brought me my first failed workout. And the other two workouts were such a success that I didn't even see it coming. I was lucky enough to do 12 minutes of burpees with Marcia. She kept the :05 seconds-a-burpee pace up to about 50 burpees. She took a very short break [...]

Burpee Training Week 3, 5/22


Last weeks workouts were perfect! However I can tell that this week's will definitely push my limits. Here is the recap: The LSB was great. I lucked out and had Erika do it with me! Having a partner made the entire process much more enjoyable. It got hard at the normal spots, just before [...]

Burpee Training Week 2, 5/15/2018


The first week was not too bad. I was expecting it really hit my shoulders and triceps a lot harder than it did. I think I started with the right mix of small numbers and just enough, but not too intensity that I was able to complete everything as written and not feel defeated. [...]

Burpee Training day 1, 5/8/2018


I tested my mile time with burpees. Right now, the fastest I can run a mile is in about 6 minutes. So today I performed my "burpee conversion" test to see how many burpees equal a hard run mile. I stuck to my plan, see yesterday's post, and was able to sneak a few [...]
