The burpee, also known as the squat thrust, is a full body exercise used in strength training and as aerobic exercise. It is performed in four steps, and was originally known as a "four-count Burpee":

Begin in a standing position.

Drop into a squat position with your hands on the ground. (count 1)
Extend your feet back in one quick motion to assume the front plank position. (count 2)
Return to the squat position in one quick motion. (count 3)
Return to standing position. (count 4) [1]

not sure what a burpee is either, but I definitely got a good workout, zumba, walking and a few machine exercise, and lots of walking, did I say that?

Since the date is March 21st, I was inspired to do a pyramid workout (3-2-1). The moves are
-Burpees
-High knees
-Plank Obliques
-Butt kickers

In round 1, perform 1 rep of each move. Round 2=2 reps, round 3=3 reps, round 4=3 reps again, round 5=2 reps, and round six brings you back to one rep. You are probably wondering, "What the Heck is a plank oblique?" In plank position, bring your right knee out to your right shoulder (not into your shoulder under your body, out and around to your shoulder). Then bring your left knee out to your left shoulder. That is one rep.

Have fun!
