Trivia Time: THE BURPEE
Credit for the now-common name of the exercise goes to Royal Burpee, who, while enrolled as a PhD candidate in physiology at Columbia University back in 1939, codified the movement into four separate “counts” or steps (a progression that’s since evolved to five or six steps, depending on the coach). Burpee apparently didn’t see this as something that should be done in high volume — as when CrossFitter Mikko Salo bangs out 1,000 to prove a point — but rather a movement that could be done in spurts to warm up the body.
