Reebok Challenges You For World Burpee Day
So you think you’re in shape? The Reebok has a World Burpee Day challenge just for you! Even if you aren’t in shape this will reveal just how much work you need to do.
And yes we had no idea that burpee day was a thing let alone WORLD burpee day. But thanks to our friends at Reebok we now do.
Not only are they challenging you just for fun; they’ve also got some really fun prizes on the line. Yes this will require you to get out of your cars for a few hours but you’ll live.
What is a burpee you may ask yourself. The burpee, or squat thrust, is an absolutely sadistic full body exercise used in strength training and as an aerobic exercise that when enough reps are done leave you feeling as if your lungs will explode and your heart will burst.
The basic movement is performed in four steps and known as a “four-count burpee”:
- Begin in a standing position.
- Drop into a squat position with your hands on the ground. (count 1)
- Kick your feet back into a plank position, while keeping your arms extended. (count 2)
- Immediately return your feet to the squat position. (count 3)
- Stand up from the squat position (count 4)
There are at least another dozen or more variants of the burpee to be done as well as the video shows. Reebok wants to see how creative you can get with doing burpees and is challenging people on the Reebok Twitter to numerous burpee exercises.
From 10 a.m. through 10 p.m. EST today, Reebok will be issuing Twitter challenges every hour on the hour that present fitness enthusiasts across the U.S. with a chance to cash in their best, most creative burpees tagged with the hashtag #WorldBurpeeDay for some epic experiences and prizes.
Prizes will range from free concert tickets to private training sessions with professional athletes & celeb trainers, Reebok is ready to reward you for your personal best burpee, in celebration of the day.
Fans and non-fans alike are encouraged to tune in to @Reebok on Twitter throughout the day on Thursday 10/12/17 for challenge announcements, or better yet, just break into a few reps right now and force your swole mate to film you performing them.
In order to be considered, fans of the brand must tag @Reebok using #WorldBurpeeDay.
Last year, Reebok celebrated the full-body movement we all love to hate by live streaming 24-hours of hardcore burpee footage from people and athletes around the world.
This year they’re upping the ante by rewarding the brave souls who aren’t scared to bust out a set of burpees, with some highly coveted Burpee Bucks — aka some pretty cool prizes.
