Wow! Now that is a lot of burpees. Go ahead and test yourself to see how you size up with the average numbers. And don't worry burpees don't like you that much either.

Let's put this into a different perspective for a minute, or 25 burpees. Here is a list of some common food and drinks that may have you making some different choices at the checkout counter.

• White bread (2 slices): 170 calories: 200 burpees

• Milk (200ml): 100 calories: 150 burpees

• Pizza (regular/cheese): 1,400 calories: 1,650 burpees

• Tomato sauce (100g): 111 calories: 170 burpees

• Big Mac meal (Large): 1,350 calories: 1,375 burpees

So, there you have it. All the information you need to make healthy choices. Here is my advice, "Eat lean meat and lots of vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake of food to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.”

Moral of the story, eat to fuel your body properly so you don't have to do too many burpees. Try this at your next workout — 7 minutes of burpees. Best to-go workout there is. Happy eating and happy burpeeing. Is that even a word? I mean it is a noun after all.
