Wikipedia: Burpee (exercise)
The burpee, a squat thrust with an additional stand between reps, is a full body exercise used in strength training and as an aerobic exercise. The basic movement is performed in four steps and known as a “four-count burpee”:

1. Begin in a standing position.
2. Move into a squat position with your hands on the ground. (count 1)
3. Kick your feet back into a plank position, while keeping your arms extended. (count 2)
4. Immediately return your feet into squat position. (count 3)
5. Stand up from the squat position (count 4)

Moves from 2-4 constitute a squat thrust.

Wikipedia: Slurpee
Slurpee is the 7-Eleven-exclusive brand name for a frozen carbonated drink.
