Guest Post: 20 Minute AMRAP At-Home Workout with BONUS Abs

What a great opportunity to be able to collaborate with such an inspirational blogger such as Jen, Founder and Editor of Style in Shape. Her blog, her style, offers a newbie, such as myself, so much to learn from and so many #goals! You cannot even imagine my excitement as we began talking and decided to guest post on each other’s websites. I was definitely up for the fashion and experience she could offer my readers.

Since our blogs align in the fitness sense, I thought a workout would be very appropriate. Therefore, your trainer (If I’m not yet, I should be 😉 ) has created a nice 20 minute AMRAP workout that can be done anywhere! First, if you are not familiar with my blog, go check it out here! I’ll wait….Pretty cool, yeah? With my additional passion for coffee, I’d recommend 1 cup of black coffee 30-60 minutes before beginning this workout.

Now, let’s see what we’ll be doing!

If you are new to AMRAP, it is a pretty simple, but very effective type of exercise. The goal is to go fast and keep moving until you have completed your time. You want to complete as many rounds as you possibly can within your allotted time.

Below is our workout  today. You will need:

  • A notebook
  • Timer
  • Set of weights (not heavy, something lighter because you will be doing a lot)

I want you to keep a notebook handy to keep track and have a timer set for 10 minutes. After you complete a round, put a tally mark in your notebook. For instance, your first circuit is:

  • 25 Squat Jumps
  • 25 Burpees
  • 25 Deadlifts
  • 25 Lunge Jumps
  • 25 Kettlebell Swings (If you don’t have a kettlebell, a dumbbell will work the same)

That’s one round. See how many rounds you can get within the 10 minutes, rest for 2 minutes, then do the same in Circuit 2.

Now, don’t you feel AMAZING!? And strong? Congratulations for completing this workout, I know it’s not easy! How many rounds did you get in each circuit? Next time, we’re going to try and beat that number, okay?

Because I know you are super strong and I believe in you, I’ve also added a little core workout for you.

Perform each move for 1 minute, stretch a little to bring your heart rate down, and then you are done!

Thank you guys for reading and thanks to Jen for allowing me this opportunity. For more workouts, reviews, and much more, follow us online and on Instagram. See ya later!

25 minute Kettlebell Workout

Kettebells are a great tool for exercise! The types of movement with a kettlebell workout promotes functional strength with flexibility. Plus it is cardio and strength all in one which is always a bonus! I’m sharing a 25 minute kettlebell workout that I did last week. Warning- my legs and abs were sore for a few days! #nopainnogain I used a 10lb kettlebell for this workout. If you do not own a kettlebell you can substitute with a dumbbell. Run through each exercise, then repeat the round before moving on. Make sure on those single side exercises that you complete a […]

Why Your Phone Should Be Your Running Buddy

Last week I decided to go for a run on my lunch break. Something I never do but the weather was not too sunny-not too hot-not too cool. Basically a perfect day for a run. In my subdivision all the streets either dead end or dump back into the road used enter/exit our sub. So when a car with only a male driver passed me not once or twice, but five times at an alarming slow speed I was totally creeped out and a little frightened. I was glad I listened to my intuition and brought my phone for my […]

A PSL Workout

It is PSL season after all- let’s have a little workout pun fun! This quick workout will work arms, core and legs.. oh the legs. Full disclosure, I have totally fallen off the motivational wagon and have slipped on making it to my workouts. I am working on adjusting my focus to the long term effects/goals of a fit lifestyle instead of the quick obtainable ones like fitting back into a fair pair of jeans. For some reason Lil Miss has wanted to party for a few hours every night around 2:30am. This Mama is tired and has hit snooze […]

21 Rep Burnout Arm Routine

Hey babes! I’m really excited to share a new arm workout with you all today! It is going to leave those arm sore that’s for sure! One aspect the hubs and I love with Les Mills workouts is the muscle confusion. I brought a little muscle confusion into this workout. The workout seems so simple (and it is) but it is a real challenge! The key here is form. During the burnout- only keep pushing while your form is still good. If your form slips, slow down. There is nothing to gain by rushing through these exercises. This workout is […]

Collab: 6 Back to School Fashion & Fitness Tips

Hey guys! I’ve been a little off the Internet grid for the past couple of days. The husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a getaway to Miami Beach. I had all intentions to blog & take you guys with us via Insta stories but somewhere along that first night I put away my phone & decided that what I really needed to do was unplug and reconnect with my number one. And that’s just what I did! (A’s swim trunks | A’s tank (similar) | Bikini top | Bikini bottom) Now I’m back, and brainstorming my next month of content. […]

Must Own Post-natal Fitness DVDs

Honestly, I forget sometimes that I’m still in a post-partum stage when it comes to exercising. Then I’ll attempt some plank move that I can’t quite master because it’s still hard to use those lower abdominal muscles and instantly reminded that my body is still recovering. Today I’m sharing post-natal workout DVDs that really helped me get back into the swing of exercise. Read on to see my picks! Postnatal Rescue with Erin O’Brien Okay, I’m going to disclose that this DVD is very calm and quiet. Erin is very gentle which can feel cheesy, dated and a little non-motivating. […]

5 Fitness Tips for the Busy Mom

One of my biggest struggles is fitting everything into the 24 hours of the day now that I am back to working full time since the arrival of my little lady.  I’m learning to make the most of free time whenever it presents itself. It’s hard to find the balance with all that I want to do and all the roles that I play. (keep the house tidy, stay up on laundry, exercise, blog, creating content, building connections & Instagram followers, working 9-5, quality time with my husband and kids, family adventures, date with my husband, showering..) While I love […]

Little Miss started in the infant room at her school this week and I’m back to working full time. I was that hot mess Mom with a stream of tears down my face on our first drop off. This week has been an adjustment; emotionally & physically. I’m still trying to juggle to fit everything that I want into my day/week. (Like blogging, laundry!) Since my little lady […]

SIS: Spring Into Summer Shape Up Week 4

Wow, May is kinda flying by- am I right? Over here in Dayton, the schools will be done for the year this week. Maybe it’s because I had a baby one week into 2017 but it seems crazy that summer is weeks away. (Days if you feel that Memorial Day is the official kick-off to summer like I do!) Last week my husband was out of town which made it a challenge to get the workouts complete. Truth be told, I didn’t get to all of them which means I want to make those up this week. Not really looking […]

SIS: SPRING INTO SUMMER SHAPE UP WEEK 3

Hi all! It’s been such a busy week. I made some updates to the site and computer coding is not a strong suite of mine- everything took a lot longer than anticipated. And then last minute at the end of the week I got a new MacBook; which required getting all that set up and files transferred. It’s been a week of lots of computer nonsense! It’s also been a SORE week! I can really tell I’m pushing and challenging myself- I feel like I am seeing changes in my arms! (or imagining?) I’m starting to fit back into some […]
