The 20-Minute AMRAP Workout That You’re Going to Love

Have you guys ever done an AMRAP workout, where you do “as many rounds as possible” in a set amount of time? It’s one of my favorite types of workouts because you can do it together with people of all fitness abilities (you’re all working together for a set amount of time, so it doesn’t matter how fast or slow you go or how much you’re modifying — you’re all in it together!) and because when you’re racing against the clock to get as many rounds in as you can, the time goes so much faster — and you work a lot harder.

The first time I did an AMRAP workout was with Bob. Ah, that day was fantastic.

And since then I’ve done a lot of AMRAP workouts. But I would say that this “3, 6, 9” one I did recently at my gym is just about right up there with the Bob one. You know, minus Bob. (Bob, come to Kansas City and work out with me!)

Try it and see what you think!

20-Minute AMRAP Workout


AMRAP-585With 15 minutes of total work and five minutes of rest, it’s tough but fairly quick. And the rep count of 3, 6, 9 is really doable. You never have to do too many of one thing and you get a minute of rest every three minutes, so mentally, it’s easy to really push it.

Not sure how to do a power clean or don’t have a barbell? Grab a dumbbell and instead do a bent-over row or a push-press. You got this!

Anyone else love a good AMRAP workout like me? I think I’m kind of addicted. —Jenn
