Enjoy this post via the September 2011 issue of Competitor Magazine.
"Once used as an agility test for the Armed Services in WWII by Royal H. Burpee and as punishment for prisoners following the Civil War, the exercise known as the burpee is accepted as one of the best full-body strengthening moves, particularly for runners.
