Squat, plank, push-up, jump forward, explode up, and repeat. You've gotta love burpees (or hate them because they're so intense!). There's a lot going on in this dynamic move, and not only does it tone your arms, core, and legs, but it also gets the heart rate pumping, so you know it's burning calories too. Check out this GIF to ensure you have the proper form and order of moves.

Start off cycling through 10 in a row, or if you're ready to step it up, try this challenge: see how many burpees you can do safely and effectively in one minute [1]. If you prefer, you can also do a burpee by jumping first, and here's a tutorial [2] breaking down that version.
