Check out this AMRAP Workout Video
It’s always a good idea to change up your workout occasionally in order to keep you engaged and interested. Stagnant workouts lead to stagnant results or dropout completely! Try this workout today and let it revitalize your fitness routine!
The AMRAP workout is based on the AMRAP principle or As Many Reps As Possible. For all of these timed exercises, you need to push yourself and perform as many reps as you can possibly do (with proper form) in the time given. For this workout, start out by doing each exercise for 30 seconds for a total of 3 sets.
If you push yourself to the max during this AMRAP workout you will be toast….maybe puking 🙂 … but you will help ramp up your afterburn effect which can have you burning calories long after the workout is over!
Hypothetically, you can even have your metabolism boosted 24+ hours after your workout (Schuenke et al 2002)!
The AMRAP Workout
This workout is great for helping to tax the legs (really the entire body)! From squats to lunges, to burpees plus so much more, this difficult workout will just be what you need to break a sweat and burn a ton of calories!
Heel jack, squat punch, lunge with squat, basketball shuffle, burpees, offset pushup
You are basically performing a jumping jack with a squat between each jack. Perform a normal jumping jack but touch your heels (you will have to squat down each time) in-between the jacks! Trust me this exercise can get pretty taxing towards the 30-second mark…push yourself!
Walking Lunge with Squat
Try this workout a couple of times this week and see how you feel!
