Death by Burpees will not kill you. It only will make you stronger than ever.

“To do a burpee, stand with your feet slightly beyond shoulder-width apart. Bending at your hips and knees, squat and lower your body until you can place your hands on the floor. Kick your legs backward into a pushup position. Do a pushup, and then immediately reverse the move. As you rise to the standing position, explosively jump in the air. That’s 1 rep. (To make sure you’re doing it right, check out our burpee blueprint.)

One important note: At Gym Jones, we have standards for a rep to count. During the pushup, you must maintain a perfect plank and your chest must touch the ground.

At the top of the burpee, you must jump at least six inches high and clap. If you miss one of those criterion or your form breaks down at any point, the rep doesn’t count.” http://www.menshealth.com/fitness/death-by-burpee
