Burpees

It's okay – most people don't like burpees. But the reason we do them is because they're a great whole-body exercise (and hence, calorie burner).

Start in a prone plank position. Jump your feet towards your hands into a low squat and spring off the ground with force. Try to get as much air as you can! Land with soft knees and return to your plank position to repeat.These will also hone your coordination – enjoy the challenge!
