Burpee

What it hits: Whole body

Crash course: Burpees are one of the most efficient functional exercises. They increase strength and boost endurance.

Make it work: Stand straight then lower into a squat position with your hands on the floor in front of you. Kick your feet back into a plank position and return your feet back to the squat position as quickly as possible. Jump into the air as high as you can and then return to the squat position. Repeat as quickly as possible.

The rules: Each leg 15 to 20 reps
