Burpee Box Jumps Are the Devil….

but are they sure are worth the pain!

Before I continue I want to apologize that I haven’t posted much this month. It has been a very crazy hectic month. Once the summer rolls around and our schedule is less jammed packed.  I hope to post on a regular basis once again. I have some posts ideas that I am gnawing on so please stay tuned.

Today I wanted to share the really hard work out I did today. It was again one of those situations where it looks easy on the white board, but in reality it sucks! The burpee box jumps are killer and they took me FOREVER. In case you don’t know what this gem of an exercise is just look below.
