Diesel Burpees – Various Modifications for Athletes
Thanks for checking out DieselCrew.com!
Today, we are looking at ways to modify Burpees to make them more challenging for athletes.
I train Baseball Players here at my gym, and I have used many variations of Burpees with them.
The Burpee can be very challenging as it tests the athlete or trainee’s conditioning as well as upper and lower body strength, power, and flexibility.
Burpees are interesting enough, but with some imagination and creativity, there are almost endless ways to kinetically modify the burpee, intensifying it for various parts of the body or emphasizing specific portions of the movement itself.
These modifications make it possible to tailor the Burpee to match the energy pathways and movement patterns of their sport.
In the video below, you will see several different ways to modify the Burpee.
These are just a few ways Burpees can be changed up to make them even more INTENSE!
If you work with Baseball Players, then you can make the Burpee even more Baseball-specific. To see how, check out my new baseball strength training website, Advanced Baseball Training.
