For maximum effect, the burpees have to be performed with a firm core and good technique. You can try to rush the burpee, but it will cost your results.

Squat and break at the hips before the knees start to bend, at the lowest point, place your palms on the floor and straighten your legs behind your torso. Execute one pushup and bring back your legs under your body to jump back to your original position. Lift up your hands above your head before landing, this completes one repetition.
For the squats, stand with your legs apart and your feet pointing outwards. Put your hands on your head, alternatively, you can stretch them outwards and perform a sitting motion. Break at your hips before you bend your knees, ensure that your back is straight and get as low a possible. Your knees should not go beyond your toes. Engage your glutes and push up your heels to return to the original position. This completes one cycle. Increase the depth and form of your squats to get the most out of them.
