This martial arts move is like a burpee but your chest and stomach touch the ground. "Going deeper gives the move a greater range of motion and forces you to lift more of your body weight in the pushup portion," says Ramona Braganza, celebrity trainer and creator of the 321 Training Method. It targets all major muscles--including the legs, glutes, chest, back, arms, and abs--and will get your heart rate up.
