ALL LEVELS / Push-pull AMRAP / 10 minutes
Equipment: Pull-up bar, exercise mat & stopwatch
By now, we trust you’re familiarised with the meaning of the acronym AMRAP. It stands for As Many Reps or Rounds As Possible (we’ll explain it later) and it’s a type of HIIT workout that suggests you only rest when the clock stops. This means you can have a 5-minute abs AMRAP to finish a more extensive workout, or it can be a 20-minute full-body session — here’s a good example.
The R in AMRAP can stand for reps or rounds — and that can alter your training session significantly. For example, an AMRAP based on repetitions can be a period to perform as many reps of specific exercises as possible during that time. As for the one consisting of rounds, you get a pre-planned number of reps for a different number of exercises, and you must do as many rounds as possible during the overall time of that AMRAP.
Today’s workout is the latter. A 10-minute push-pull AMRAP with predetermined reps for each exercise.
When you’re ready, let’s start the clock!
