SO HOW DO YOU COMPLETE A CLASSIC BURPEE?
Follow these steps:
1. Go down into a squat position with your hands on the floor.
2. Push your feet out into a plank position.
3. Do a push-up until your chest hits the ground. Slightly remove your hands to ensure that your chest has fully hit the ground. Push back up to a the plank position.

WHAT COUNTS AS ONE BURPEE?
For the purposes of this challenge, a single burpee is one complete run through of the steps listed above. Ideally, you'll start to improve the number you can complete as
the month progresses.
CAN I DO MORE THAN THE CHALLENGE ASKS FOR?
Yes! As the challenge progresses you may find that 30 burpees becomes too easy. Increase the number of burpees to your breaking point. Do multiple sets, focusing on form over duration.
WHAT IF I CAN'T DO A BURPEE?
Then this challenge is PERFECT for you. Spartan Race is about personal progression, and so is the #Spartan30. Coach Casey will walk you through a progression of exercises that will you get to the point of burpeeing!
CAN I CHALLENGE MY FRIENDS?
Yes! Having a partner can help motivate you to stick with the challenge. Share our link with your family and friends!
WHAT DO I WIN IF I DO THIS?
This is not a contest, although the reward is something that we could not give you anyway - a healthier, fitter you.
