What's this? Two work outs in one day or a choice of which one we prefer? They both look like killers but I think I would choose the second (21-15-9).

What are burpees? I remember them from High School, but that was a long time ago!

SL -- Yup, 2 workouts in a day! The first one was the usual 0600 one, and the second was the introductory CrossFit workout I did together with my friends from the crew team to show them what it was all about! The first one took considerably longer, though.

Spider63 -- Check out this site and scroll down to "Burpee Demo" under the CrossFit Exercises category. Basically it's a squat thrust into a pushup, followed by a jump. They are potentially nauseating, particularly in copious quantities.

Spider - to get a good feel for the Burpee you may want to give the "Sissy Test" a try. Essentially 20 burpees, 1 overhead DB or KB swing, 19 burpees, 2 overhead DB or KB swing, etc. You will definitely get the hang of the burpee.

SL -- HAHAHA yes the "Sissy Test" will definitely give you a good feel of the burpee! LOL.
