Video courtesy of Invictus Fitness.  For the Cobra to Hip Snap, watch this video.  Why is this so important?  The more efficiently we use our hips to generate the force to come off the ground, the less stress on our arms, chest, and shoulders.  Plus, the more efficient our landing position, the quicker we can jump at the end of the burpee, allowing us to cycle the burpees even faster
