What You Need to Know About Overtraining?

At 26 years old I felt like I was 100 (ok that may be an exaggeration, but still it hurt!).

So I walked into Ascension Fitness one day and complained to Jenn Lormand about my pain. She turned to me and said “Jamie, it sounds like you are over-training; you need to take a break from running for a bit.” Wait what, stop running?

Why Burpee Why?

Yes, I am back to argue for another exercise that has not really gotten a fair shake. Burpees are a form of punishment in the eyes of most people.

A burpee is performed in four steps, from a standing position place your hands on the ground in a squat, then your feet jump out to a plank and immediately jump back to the squat and finishes with a jump back up to your feet. The rest is just repeating at a rapid pace. They are rarely a favored option, but this is not respecting what a burpee offers. Maybe I just spent too much time thinking about burpees while mentally preparing to do 500 over a lost bet, but I think there is a need for a better understanding. An understanding that maybe burpees are not some torture tool schemed up by trainers to punish clients. Rather that these burpees were created for a happier purpose with proven benefits. Burpees are the superhero exercise that gives any workout a major boost, in record time, with no extra equipment necessary!
