Half Burpees

Half Burpees are a shortened version of the Full Burpee movement. Burpees are cardiovascular in nature due to the large amount of muscle groups used. For this reason you won't build large amounts of strength from this movement but you will build quadriceps and core endurance along with aerobic fitness

Functional Benefit

When done correctly with the heels on the ground full squat position half burpees increase hip and and ankle flexibility. The catch phase or bridge phase is a dynamic core stabilization exercise which strengthens the abdominals. Half burpees are a whole body movement, this means they are the best choice for weight loss workouts buring large amounts of calories
