Inspired by a workout used by prisoners and Special Forces Soldiers
The 10k Burpee Challenge is at it again! The company has had a crazy year with the addition of 3 challenges already; the 20k, the 30k, and the Burpee Board Game. Now, they are adding what may be their hardest challenge yet! The Burpee Prison Challenge! The Burpee Prison Challenge is a workout inspired by the exercise routine used by prisoners who want to survive the yard but don’t have the luxury of a gym. That workout has been used by special forces soldiers to stay in fighting shape. Now, a slightly modified version (amped up a bit) is available for you to attempt!
The workout involves counting up reps of burpees starting at 1 and ending at 20 reps. In between each rep the athlete performs 10 jumping jacks. So, the athlete does 1 burpee and then 10 jumping jacks. Then 2 burpees and 10 jumping jacks. And so on. If you can complete the whole workout you earn an awesome finisher’s patch! Oh! We may have forgotten to mention the time limit. This 210 burpee workout has a strict time limit of 20 minutes! All attempts must be recorded and reviewed by 10k Burpee staff to ensure only those who earn it get the patch!
Burpee Prison will be open for registration on the 10k Burpee website July 1st, 2019 and will be $15. More details available on the website!
