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!

10 Minute Core and Legs Workout Routine

10 Minute Core and Legs Workout Routine

This is how I got through this workout…dreaming of treats…


ANYWAY…who knew we could get so sore in 10 minutes?!

This workout is quick and targets the legs and core but the arms will still get some attention, too. The point here is to keep rest periods short and work through the exercises as quickly as you’re able to get the most benefit.

3 Rounds, or more šŸ˜‰

  • 20 Squat Jacks
  • 20 Pulsing Lunges (10/side) holding weights
  • 10 Push-ups
  • 10 Bottom Burpees (only do bottom half of burpee: knees to chest, jumping up not included)
  • 30 Mountain Climbers
  • 10 Butterfly Crunches


  • Try to keep rest periods short.
  • I challenged myself to do each round in 3 minutes or less, but focus on good form!
  • For an added challenge, try to maintain push-up position (on hands and toes) from the start of your push-ups until after you complete the mountain climbers. Fair warning – your quads and shoulders might start burning!

Good luck!!
