The Daily Echo: Are Those Burpees Baking Your Back? May 5, 2020

May 5, 2020

Burpee haters turn away now.

In addition to be mad effective at smoking your athletes (and yourself), burpees are a great movement for teaching global extension and global flexion of the spine.

Just check that worm-up-to-pike sequence. Good, right?

BUT, you can also see how improper sequencing (eg no butt squeeze) is a Do Not Pass Go card straight into the Meat Club…and a recipe for a baked back.

Squeeze your butt, people. Respect the opportunity to teach/learn skill. #IUTU #liveready #thereadystate
