Workout Wednesday – Mini AMRAP

Posted on July 19, 2017


 

We’ve gotten a lot of requests for workouts you can do from anywhere now that summer is here. Whether you’re vacationing by the lake with family or traveling to the desert for work, you’ll want to keep getting your workouts in and might not have access to a lot of equipment. We’re here to help! Here’s an all bodyweight workout you can do, with some special stipulations to make it as challenging as you need it to be as you go!

 

You’ll be doing a total of four mini AMRAP workouts. AMRAPs mean “as many rounds as possible,” so you’ll want to keep a pen and paper nearby to keep track of your progress. The only other thing you’ll need is a stopwatch!

 

Each AMRAP round will last 5 minutes, and you’ll take a 2-minute break between each one. The workout looks like this:

5 Reverse Lunges (per leg)
10 Squat Jacks
20 Mountain Climbers
30 Jumping Jacks

 

You’ll get as many rounds and reps as possible in 5 minutes, then rest. For each successive round, you’ll try to add 5 reps to each movement. So round 2 would look like this:

10 Reverse Lunges (per leg)
15 Squat Jacks
25 Mountain Climbers
35 Jumping Jacks

And so on! This will get very difficult by the end, so try to pace yourself a bit and keep water nearby!

We love to see how you get your workouts in when you’re not at the gym, so tag @UnionFitnessPGH on Instagram with your workout videos!
