Burpee/Pull-ups!!! -BodyRocker Tommy -Team USA

Hey BodyRockers!! Tommy here again. I just wanted to share with you my variation of Burpees Everywhere. I don’t get to travel or see exotic places very often. So I did these Burpee/Pull ups in the comfort of my own backyard:) I took a 2×4 and nailed it across two trees. You can easily do these on any pull up bar but I thought being out in the woods would spice it up a little bit ha. This is an awesome workout! I usually do 3 or 4 sets of failure… Meaning I go until I can’t go anymore, rest for a quick minute then do it again 2 or 3 more times. Quick, but very intense. Give it a try! Let me know what you think. Excuse the tubby-ness of my stomach I have been slacking big time on my diet lately! Today was actually the first day back on strict diet in like a week. I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am if it weren’t for!!!! I love you all!!!! Bodyrock on from MN!

    Tommy—thanks bud! What you’ve suggested is pretty much on my menu most of the time–minus the rice. Instead I’ll have quinoa. I do however need to become more diligent in incorporating more fruits and veggies into my eating habits. Rather than eating them at meal times, I have grown to LOVE the spinach, kale and fruit smoothie mentioned somewhere in the “Food and Diet” section. 1 every morning does the trick for me–gets all the veggies and fruit I need for the day. AND it tastes GREAT!! Thanks again :) Tammy

    Not sure if you’re interested but you can ferment brown rice for it’s mineral availability.

    Great idea doing this in the backyard!! Definitely trying it, I just need to get two trees and the 2×4 =)

      I go to the local playground, they have hanging bars there.

    It seemed so effortless and easy that for a tiny bit I forgot how I still do struggle with push ups if I have to do more than 2 in a row LOL
