She expressed:

“By day five, I notice I’ve already got what I’m telling myself is more muscle definition in my arms and abs. I put it down to the high-intensity nature of burpees, and maybe a splash of my intense desire for this horrible exercise to do the business.”

This result was paired with proper nutrition.

According to Healthline, the calories one can burn in doing this depends on one’s weight. By doing 20 burpees, a 125-pound person may burn 8 calories, 10 calories burned for a 155-pound person, and 12 calories lost for 185-pound person.
