Burpee Over Bar
Join Coach Gus at WIT House Ldn to learn how to best do the Burpee Over Bar movement. Showing three variations, Coach Gus guides you through a regular bar facing burpee, a "surfing" bar facing burpee and a lateral bar facing burpee. Each can be used in a Crossfit WOD or competition.
Coach Gus' top performance tips are:
- Stay close to the bar on take off and on landing
- When doing a regular bar facing burpee, the movement standard allows you to step up to the bar, which is slower but more efficient
- When doing a surfing bar facing burpees, move up and over the bar in a circular motion
- Lateral burpees are the fastest to do. Never drop down to the bottom of the burpee if you aren't ready to bounce back up and jump over the bar
