Transcript of The Biomechanics of a Burpee

Overall Performance Objectives 3. Acceleration Phase (Push Down) The Burpee! By: Claudia Martinez, Irvin Medrano, Michael Jimenez, & Veronica Burks. Body faces the ground.
The entire body is aligned.
Torso is lowered to the ground.
Body lowered until chest is hovering above the ground. Analysis of the Movement Coming Up: The Phases of a Burpee

There are 7 phases (including recovery phase) 5. Acceleration into preparatory (Tuck in Legs) 6. Acceleration (Push Up to explode going upwards) Introduction of the Videos Main Objectives Overall Performance Objectives
Analysis of the Movement
Phases of the Movement
Comparison of Subjects Manipulate a resistance
The OPO of a burpee is to position the person doing the movement in a way where he or she will maximize their force and resistance. Discrete Movement
Closed Movement
Simultaneous Kinetic Link Movement Pattern
Closed Kinetic Movement 1. Preparatory Phase (Tuck Down) Body remains upright
Body moves towards the floor into a squat-like position
Body gets ready for acceleration phase 2. Acceleration (Kick Out) Weight shifts upon chest and arms muscles
Kick heels back
Whole body is aligned
Body reaches plank position Advantages and Disadvantages 4. Acceleration (Push Up) Body is still hovering facing the ground.
Back is straight, the entire body is aligned.
Force is generated from pushing up..
Body raises, lengthening arms. Body must be in prone position from the push-up
Keeping hands apart for base support
Legs are bent and knees are tucked in towards the chest
Back is curved upward Body is in a low squat position
Have both arms up towards the individual's side and over their head
Legs are extended as their body jumps upward, propels to a peak 7. Recovery (Land) Slightly bend knees to absorb the force coming down, disperses impact to not aggravate the patella/knee/leg muscles all at once
Back is upright, shoulders straight
This will maintain their center of gravity
The energy is decelerated, and body is back to anatomical position Comparisons of the Performers Expert (Julian) vs. Amateur (Patrick)
Subjection for Improvements THANK YOU!!!!!!(: any questions?
