  1. hey Brad, how often do you do bodyweight, hiit exercises vs weighted
    exercises? or do you combine them in one session?
    great channel btw 😉

  2. Wow this was sooo helpful I am just getting started so knowing how to do
    the beginner moves is great. I was just not doing them. Love it.

  3. I actually love to do burpees! I’d say I work on normal burpees most of the
    time (progression #3) however I’m still working on doing the push up at the
    bottom. I don’t feel my upper body & core strength is quite there yet. I
    also seem to have trouble with tightness in my lower back & hips which
    makes it hard to get my hands flat on the ground and then to jump my feet
    back. I always used to elevate my hands on a step or a bosu to help, or
    maybe I should just try to work on going to the floor??

  4. If you hate doing this bodyweight exercise…ask yourself this…”What do I
    hate more, this exercise or my stubborn body fat?” … do it!
