with a squat thrust you dont jump up i think, wheras in a burpee you do.
burpees are a brilliant conditioning exercise, youll absolutly hate them when you do them but they are brilliant

lol Then add on this:-

Instead of just thrusting the legs straight back you can split them whilst thrusting back too. Make sure you keep a flat bodyline though at full extension (no sagging in the middle).

Try burpees with a weighted vest.. that's when you know you're a man, or the 100 burpee test for time of course
