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!

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 […]
