How to Do a Burpee with Lateral Leg Raise

Learn how to do a burpee with lateral leg raise in this Howcast workout video about plyometric exercises.


Here's another great exercise. This is a burpee with a lateral leg raise. I'm going to tell you, this is a burner. It involves your total body. Shoulders, abs, back, hamstrings, glutes. Everything is working, so this is one that you can do at any time, anywhere. And I would really incorporate it because it's a total body workout.

Your burpee, and I know when I say "burpee" a lot of people know what it is, but there's a lot of different modifications and variations. This one, what you're going to do is, you're going to start in a push-up position to your burpee. Getting down, legs back, pop up, lateral leg raise. Okay? Once again. Down, push-up position, up, get your balance, lateral.

Now, two things you can do. You can do five burpees with a lateral leg raise, so you're going to go one side at a time. Or you can alternate. Okay? Why don't I do it when you're alternating? From here, burpee up, lateral, go right, left, right. Okay, again. What's really, really working is your core, and everything else.

When you do this, make sure when you're in your push-up position that your abs are really in tight, because I don't want you bowing, which will injure your back. You have to make sure you don't bow, and that you keep it firm. Okay. Back up. Laterally. And pop back up. And right. Okay?

And that's how you do your burpee with a lateral leg raise.
