I don't know about you but I am a visual person. If someone tells me to do a burpee I need to see it a few times first.
To help you out here is a video of a burpee. I like to go all the way down to lying on the ground. Then I get back up and do a small hop with a clap overhead. Here is a link to the video. While you are there please subscribe to my You Tube channel.
This is one of the exercises in my new book, "31-Day Workout Challenge." You can find it on Amazon here.
As always, reach out if you have any questions.
