Arms: Burpees With Push-ups
Burpees are the ultimate fat burning and strength-building exercise move. Go into a squat position, put your hands on the floor, and kick back your feet to land in a push-up position. Do a full push-up to strengthen those arm muscles, return to squat position, and jump up high. After 60 seconds of this move you’ll without doubt have to wipe away that sweaty brow.
