    Fuck no, I loathe burpees. I loathe push ups, sit ups and all plyometric exercises. Can't fucking stand anything like that. I honestly feel that these things do absolutely nothing for me other than put unnecessary stress and strain on already injury ravaged body. I just want to drill techniques and spar. If I get injured whilst sparring then that's fair enough. If I get injured because I'm being made to jump up and down like a cunt for no good reason then I get a little emotional.

    Weighted vest burpees are pretty hardcore if you're into that sort of thing though. I also have great admiration for guys (heavy guys especially) who can do lots of chin ups and pull ups. Even without a weighted vest they're an excellent test of strength and endurance.

    Personally though, none of that is really my bag.
