Burpee Workout

I have a love/hate relationship with burpees. They are an awesome exercise, but they make me want to curse while I do them.  This morning I got an email about a new blog post over at Lifting Revolution. 30 burpee variations.  I went to check it out. 
Taylor challenged her readers to pick 15 variations and do 10 reps of each. So I did. Holy cow! Talk about a workout!  I almost stopped at 10, but I kept going. I felt like puking a couple times and my pushups on the last few sets weren't awesome, but I finished. I think this particular workout will be making a regular appearance in my exercise rotation.  
I was dripping sweat afterwards.  I almost took a picture, but I didn't want to gross y'all out :)
Anyway, if you're looking for a challenge, or just want a few ideas to mix it up, you should head over there and check it out. Don't say I didn't warn you though lol.
