Upper Body AMRAP Workout #25DaysofMFit

It’s Day 14 of the #25DaysofMFit and I don’t know about you, but my legs are incredibly sore from yesterday’s workout. So today, we are working the arms!

Today will be an AMRAP (As Many Reps/Rounds As Possible) workout. These AMRAP workouts are meant to challenge your cardio because they are a race… with yourself. In this workout, we will do an upper body circuit as many times as possible¬†within 6-minutes. Then we will rest and do something else, until at the end of the workout we do the 6-minute AMRAP again. Create some friendly competition with yourself and do more and move faster the second time around.

The thing that will make this workout harder is that extra effort during the second time through the circuit. You could easily slack off and move slowing through this 15-minute workout, but what is that going to do for you? Work hard and make the most of this short workout!

If you prefer to do the AMRAP at your own pace, at your own time, follow the instructions below:

Do the following circuit as many times as you can in 6-minutes

  1. Bicep curl to shoulder press (10 reps)
  2. Bent lateral raise (10 reps)
  3. Burpee (10 reps)
  4. 3 Bent over rows + 1 push-up (5 reps)
  5. Commando plank jacks (10 reps)

Rest for 1-minute

Do 1-minute of lizard hops (as many reps as possible)

Rest for 1-minute

Do the upper body circuit again, AMRAP for 6-minutes
* Try to do more rounds than you did the previous time!

Be sure to SHARE this workouts with your friends and give everyone the gift of health this year.
