Video: Push-up, Burpee, Pull-up Combo

 I filmed this after practice last night since I got about 10 emails asking what this was in my previous post.

This is by far one of my favorite "combo" exercises. At the studio I used to train at, they had one of those Keiser racks where the chin-up bar was 9 1/2 feet high. There were only a few trainers at the gym who could do this combo on that rack because you had to be able to jump (yes, I was one of them).

This chin-up bar isn't nearly as high (maybe 8 1/2 feet), but is still just as effective.

Enjoy your weekend!

    Thanks Chris, I am going to give this a go at the gym today. I have always done the pushup after I have jumped my legs back, so knowing I should do them at the same time is great.

    As for pullup bars you should try being 5’3″, even your average bar I have to really jump for……

    Killer combo! Doing burpee pull-up tabatas would be brutal indeed.

    I’ve also done a ridiculous workout where you do 100 of these for time. That’s no joke either.

    Keep up the good work with your blog!
