Why It Works: This total-body exercise gives you all the benefits of pushups while also challenging your cardiovascular system and ratcheting up the intensity of your workout. If this workout ever feels too “easy”—and we doubt that it will—try doubling the number of burpees and watch what happens.
How to Do It: From wherever your run ends—assuming you’re not standing in or near traffic—squat, place your hands on the ground, and “jump” your feet out into a push-up position. Perform a pushup and then jump your feet to your hands. Then jump as high as you can, throwing your hands over your head.
