8 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible)

8 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible)

Shewee! Sometimes this is the kind of workout I need. I’m not one for rushing my workouts to this extent too often. Generally speaking, I like to take my time, focus on good form and enjoy the workouts I do. But I wanted to fit this quick, high intensity workout in during a break from work and it definitely pushed me! I don’t do AMRAP workouts often but this was a welcome change.

So, what is it?!

8 Minute AMRAP

  • 10 Thrusters (I used 20 lb dumbbells, use what you can control and maintain good form)
  • 5 Push-ups
  • 2 Burpees

This is one round of the workout I completed.

This is a very high intensity workout that will work your cardiovascular system and muscular endurance. Therefore, REST as you need to. With an AMRAP workout, you are trying to get in as many rounds/reps as you can in a certain amount of time so you are going to want to try and push yourself. However, always listen to your body and take a few seconds of rest if you need. 

Good luck!
