Scott: My trainer loves burpees and tells me they’re worth the effort. Why are burpees so effective?
Megan: Burpees are a total body calisthenics exercise that hits the upper and lower body simultaneously. It is a high calorie burn that also involves the cardiovascular system. The core even works to stabilize the body during the movement patterns. When you want a quality workout, especially if pressed for time, get those burpees done.
