Monday Move[s] – AMRAP

Are you familiar with AMRAP style workouts?

AMRAP stands for As Many Reps As Possible, within a certain time limit.

I have been trying to do an AMRAP style workout in the morning because they are short and sweet but pack a good punch!

I did this one the other day using a medicine ball, but if you don’t have a med ball you can use a kettle ball, dumbell, or just your body weight.

10 Min – AMRAP

  • 10 sumo squat with overhead swing
  • 30 mountain climbers on medicine ball (if no ball, put your hands nearly on top of each other rather than shoulder width apart like a regular mt. climb)
  • 30 russian twists
  • 10 figure 8’s (in-and-out through the legs with the ball, like you do in basketball drills)

*Record the number of reps of the circuit you did in the 10 minutes and then do it again in a day or two, always trying to increase the number of reps you complete!

Challenge yourself!

  1. Great workout, Kara! I love short, high-intensity workouts, and this is one style I try to incorporate regularly. There are just so many health benefits to challenging your body with this type of exercise…kind of like Fartlek training: tough, but worth it!

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you Elaine! I also love these type of workouts. It’s sometimes really tough to fit in a workout but not when it’s 10 minutes and really challenges you! I think anyone can do anything for 10 minutes!!
