Y Gymnastics - Burpee Challenge

21 May 2020 - Y Gymnastics

Coach Jess from the Y Bankstown City has challenged our Levels Gymnasts to a Burpee Challenge!

How long can you last?

Correct Burpee Technique:

  1. Start in standing position, feet shoulder width apart
  2. Crouch down, put your hands shoulder width apart on the floor in front of your feet
  3. Jump feet back into front support position
  4. Complete one push-up (lower your body flat to the floor and return to front support)
  5. Return to crouched position
  6. Finish with a rocket jump



See how long you can last! start by doing one burpee in the first minute, and add another burpee for each following minute. 

Minute # of burpees in that minute
0-1 1
1-2 2
2-3 3
3-4 4


5-6 6
6-7 7
7-8 8

Continue this until you can physically no longer do any more burpees in that minute.

The number to record must be the number that you completed successfully.
For example, Minute 16-17 must complete 17 burpees in that minute to count. If you only completed 16 burpees in that minute they did not achieve 17, your total is 16!
