Did you ask for the mother of all Tabata bodyweight workouts?
The one that makes you sing “my quads are on firrrre!” Where no equipment brings pain.
Well, it doesn’t get better then these compound exercises the Squat and the Burpee.
The burpee is one of those exercises that when you hear it, part of you dies inside.
As a trainer, I have a love-hate relationship with them. I love them. My clients hate them.
