Over here a burpee is what you call a squat thrust and a squat thrust is a mountain climber. I do burpees US style but I notice Ross Enamait didn't always add the push up.

Sometimes people call a US style burpee a 'Bastard'. If only:

Squat down & kick the legs out
Push Up
Bring legs back in
Star Jump from the squat
Land and squat back down and up
1 rep.

I think Renegade Rows were originally just the rowing portion back when John Davies pulled the world of xtreme S&C out of his arse while standing on a space hopper. Guys like Mike Rutherford denote DB Push Up-Rows. You kind of know what you're doing then.
The rationale for reduced gin intake and the knowledge of the perils of alcoholism and attendant metabolic derangement has almost entirely come from physicians and researchers.
