What It Measures: Total Body Strength and Endurance
The Burpee measures total body strength endurance and power. Athlete will have a 15# bumper plate starting 3ft in front of them. Athlete will take entire body to the ground and the chest must touch the ground in front of plate. Athlete will jump up in front of plate and then jump entire foot on to plate, (both left and right feet must land on plate before jumping off. no part of foot can be off of plate), come to full extension in the hips while on the plate and show control. Jump off the plate with both feet to complete one good repetition. The judges will score a good repetition based on completing 3 points of contact for the jumps – land in front of plate, then jump onto plate showing the hips completely open in full extension, and back off plate in front of plate - before returning body to ground.
