If you spend a great deal of time at the computer, I do not have to tell you the shape for which your body will eventually mold into…
Like all geeks, we look for the quick fix, the reboot, the format, the hack… Today on LifeHacker I ventured across this (5 minute) exercise routine (called a “burpee”) that reportedly a prison inmate performed on a daily basis, in confined quarters, to remain in shape. Not to take anything from the LifeHacker story, I encourage that you visit LifeHacker [ CLICK HERE ] to preview a video they have posted where Mike Rowe, from the Discovery Channel, demonstrates how to do the “burpee” routine.
Now my disclaimer, so that I do not kill off any Geeks out there; “always consult with your physician prior to performing any exercise routines; especially burpees!”
Mike Rowe from Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs demonstrates how to get a great workout in any space by performing several sets of descending repetitions of the classic “burpee.”
The burpee is by no means a new exercise routine, but if you’re looking for a little variety in your fitness routine or you don’t have space for a treadmill or other exercise equipment, burpees are a great option for staying fit. [via Kyle Pott]
