We love to hate ‘em: burpees. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be doing them. In fact, burpees offer a multitude of training benefits including improved endurance and stronger glutes, quads, hamstrings and chest muscles. It’s an exercise that helps you build the type of functional fitness that can help you tackle the Mud Hero course. They can also be done anywhere without any equipment, making them easy to incorporate into any workout regimen.
