We are starting things off with a bang. Burpees are a full-body workout that scorches fat, fires up your metabolism and tones muscle.

To do a burpee, simply squat, kick your feet back into a plank position, do a push-up, return your feet back up to squat position, jump into the air and land in a standing position. Repeat over and over again. If you are a beginner, leave out the push-up or cycle in a few during your workout and build as you gain more strength.

See how many you can do in one minute: Take a 30-second rest and repeat. Keep going for at least five minutes.
