3 AMRAP Workouts

Tight on time? AMRAP workouts are not only quick but tough, effective and straightforward.

AMRAP stands for “as many reps as possible” or conversely “as many rounds as possible”. AMRAPS force you to work super hard but with a time limit so you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

When working out with AMRAPs there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Always Warmup: It is easy to skip a warmup especially when you are tight on time. Give yourself an extra 5-7 minutes to run through a few active stretches and a warmup before jumping into the AMRAP. This will help your body prepare for the workout ahead and prevent injuries.
  • Pace Yourself: It is normal to complete the first round or two at a fast pace, and then start to taper off in speed as the workout progresses. Try to pace yourself throughout the entire 10-minutes. Make sure that you keep good form and breathing throughout the whole AMRAP.
  • Break Records: One of the best parts about AMRAPs is that they can be used to show progression in fitness. Keep track of how many rounds you can complete and compare week over week to see your improvement.
