When the gym I belonged to closed I swore I would never get wired into a gym membership again.
But I do occasionally drop into the community gym. (Despite the sucky equipment.) For variety, I have outfitted my office with plenty of equipment I use. Including bands, free weights, kettlebells, and my ball.
Despite this stuff I am always on the look-out for new ways to strengthen up. Which lead me to CrossFit. They have a lot of workout material online (including videos) and are wizards at providing variety.
Just check out one of their WOD.
A popular workout is the Burpee.
And there are many variants to this one routine:
- No-pushup burpee
- Non-jump burpee
- Long-jump burpee
- Jump-tack burpee
- Jump-over burpee
- One-armed burpee (Holy crap)
(For instruction examples see YouTube Body Building or visit a local CrossFit.)
The Burpee was supposedly named after a person - Lieutenant Thomas Burpee (1757-1839) of the American Revolution. -Wiki
