his week’s exercise combines two of my favorites…burpees and punches. Now I know most people don’t care for the first one, but when it comes to straight punches let’s face it…it feel good! Great for the arms, amazing cardio, and excellent stress relief, anger management…whatever you want to call it!
You can do this drill solo or with a partner holding the bag. A heavy bag is used in our video, but a kick/punch shield works great too.
Basic set up is starting off with 10 punches immediately followed by 2 burpees. From there we decrease the punch count by two, while increasing the burpee count be two each time, until we reach 2 punches and 10 burpees to finish the set. Basically it breaks down like this:
- 10 punches/2 burpees
- 8 punches/4 burpees
- 6 punches/6 burpees
- 4 punches/8 burpees
- 2 punches/10 burpees
