How many burpees can YOU do in a row without slowing down?
This challenge will test your “burpee tolerance”, as my friend Dennis Heenan calls it.
Here’s what you do…
1 – Get warmed up and ready to rock
2 – Perform as many burpees in a row as possible without slowing down
3 – Once your pace starts to slow, that number is your “burpee tolerance”
The key is to start at a reasonable, brisk pace, and NOT SLOW DOWN. As soon as your pace starts to slow, the test is over.
(Dennis recommended that you do as many burpees in a row without stopping completely … but this is a little tweak that I think makes the test even better. This way, your form stays impeccable and it’s a better test of your “burpee fitness”)
After going through the challenge, make sure you write down the amount of burpees you were able to get in a row.
Your goal now is to beat that score the next time you perform this test.
As you can see in this video, when I took the test myself, I got 18.
Take the test yourself today, and let me know how you do!!
