The burpee. Holy smokes, there are a lot of ways to break down this movement and improve form. Today though, we are going to focus on breathing and modifications. It is so important to know how to harness your breathing for power and also to protect your core. If you have diastasis recti (abdominal separation common after pregnancy), urinary stress incontinence (you pee when you jump, run, cough, etc.), or pelvic organ prolapse, or a sense of pressure down there…it is epically important to use your breath, engage your transverse abdominis and modify when needed.
