3. Burpee vs. Other Exercises

Studies suggest whole-body workouts like burpees are typically more effective than exercises that work only one muscle group. Researchers at the College of New Jersey found burpees elicit a greater metabolic response than traditional weight training. The Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research published a study noting burpees produce metabolic and cardiorespiratory results equivalent to sprint interval cycling, and the participants reported the burpees were easier to execute.
