In this week's fitness tip, instructors Jessie and Ron of Trainer to Go show how to do a proper burpee, also known as a squat thrust.

With feet hip width apart bend the knees into a squatting position, placing your hands on the floor in front of you.

Hop, or for lower impact step your feet back to a plank position.

For a little more intensity, lower your body halfway for a push-up, or all the way and touch your tummy to the floor.

Hop or step your feet back in. Stand; then hop into the air with arms overhead.

Burpees are an excellent total body workout incorporating cardio and strength.
