Because sometimes burpees just aren’t difficult enough, Go Green demonstrates how to do dumbell burpees in this Instagram video. They even look painful. But dumbell burpees are worth the struggle. Like typical burpees, you give yourself a cardio workout while simultaneously putting your muscles through a good amount of strain. The added weight of the dumbells thus increases resistance as well as the benefits of burpee reps.
Go Green combines dumbell burpees with burpee muscle-ups, a rowing machine set, and other exercises for a total body workout. The dumbell burpees though are the best move in the set. They aren’t simple to do, but you can do them anywhere for a quick and powerful exercise that elevates your heart rate.
