Guidelines for how to do the half-burpee:
Step 1: Start in a standing position with your feet slightly more than shoulder width apart (as if you’re about to start squatting), chest and head up and facing forward.
Step 2: Initiate the movement with a squat. Keep your weight on your heels and your hands in front of you. As soon as you reach the bottom of a squat position, bring your arms down in between your legs (or outside your legs – whichever feels more comfortable) and quickly kick out your legs so you are down in a push-up position (or an extended plank position).
Step 4: Do a push-up.
Step 5: Swiftly bring your legs back in between your hands and move back into the squat position.
Step 6: Repeat.
