GTS April Challenge Tabata-A-Day Day 7

Day 7 of the GTS Tabata-A-Day Challenge 

Here's another bodyweight only exercise. We've modified your traditional burpee and added 2 claps. This is another great total body exercise thats very aerobically demanding.  Check out the video for instructions on how to perform the movement.

If you're looking for some added resistance I definitely recommend the Hyper Vest Pro 10 lb Weight Vest.  The additional 10 lbs adds up real quick. You can pick up your own here.

Don't forget to email your results or post in the comments section!
