Movement Standards

Burpee Star Jump: Perform a standard Burpee but instead of clapping hands above the head, jump with both arms and legs extended in opposite directions to complete the repetition.

Prison Burpee: This is a complex variation of a standard Burpee. Athlete goes down for a Push-Up, then from the extended position, move the right knee towards the left elbow. Complete another Push-Up and move the left knee towards the right elbow. Then, perform another Push-Up and move the right knee towards outside the right elbow. Complete another Push-Up and move the left knee towards the left elbow. Do another Push-Up and from the extended position, raise the right arm towards the sky perpendicular to the floor. Finally to finish one repetition, perform another Push-Up, and extend the left arm towards the sky perpendicular to the floor. Watch: Prison Burpee Movement Demo

Hands to Toes V-Up: This is a variation of the standard V-Up. Instead of starting from a Hollow Hold position, lift the legs perpendicular to the ground and reach for the toes to complete one repetition.

Jumping Squats: This is a variation of the standard Air Squat. Perform an Air Squat and complete the repetition by jumping from the squat to the full extension.

Scaling Options

Use 35/20 lb Dumbbell.

Scale down the Burpee Star Jumps to standard Burpee.

Backgroound: Pride Month-inspired 26-minute full-body Dumbbell workout. I have given this workout a lot of thought and broke it into four sections: self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility. I wanted to show my support to the LGBT community and wanted to do a workout…however I found that there weren’t any specific ‘Pride’ inspired workouts.
