Muscle of the Month: BURPEE CHALLENGE

  • Location: Fitness Center
  • Time: 6:00am - 10:30pm

This is a new challenge that requires you to perform as many burpees as possible within a 1-minute time limit. Burpees are fantastic full-body workouts that engage the upper body, lower body, and core. Not only do the focus on muscular fitness, but they train the muscles engaged for both endurance and power. The high intensity of this challenge is also a great way to exercise the heart and lungs. Come give it a try!

Rules:

  • Ask a FC Attendant to time you and keep count of your burpees.
  • Perform as many burpees as possible (while maintaining proper technique) within the one minute time frame.
  • Make sure a Fitness Center Attendant supervises your attempt and records the number of burpees you perform on the MOM board, adds up the total number of burpees (including in your previous trials), and places your name in the raffle.
  • Challenge can only be completed once per day.
  • The male and female who accumulate the most burpees will win $15 gift cards.
  • Two raffles will be drawn for $10 gift cards.

Proper Burpee Technique:

  • Begin in a standing, upright position.
  • Lower yourself into a standard squat position with hands on the floor in front of you
  • Kick your feet back to a pushup position
  • Proceed into a pushup (modifications allowed)
  • Immediately return feet to the squat position
  • Jump up as high as possible from the squat position
