Burpees go great with everything. They’re even better when combined with another movement to create something more punishing than the sum of its parts. Tuesday we’re melding the burpee with the box jump for burpee box jumps. This mutant movement requires greater agility, coordination, and accuracy than a standard burpee or box jump, while also adding to the range of motion required, and turning up the suck factor. The burpee box jump is paired with kettlebell swings for what should be a fast, but brutal couplet.
