The burpee tuck jump is an advanced, high-intensity exercise that adds a vertical jump to the traditional burpee exercise. This exercise is perfect for those looking to add some intensity to their fat-loss program or increase their overall athleticism. The burpee tuck jump starts with a traditional burpee. Begin in a standing position with your feet hip-width apart. Squat down and place your hands on the floor, then jump your feet back and land in a plank position. From there, you will perform a standard pushup and then jump your feet back up to your hands. Once you’re back in the standing position, you’ll begin the tuck jump.
