10 AMRAP Workouts To Improve Your Endurance

10-amrap-workouts-improve-endurance

Oh, the sweet (not really) burn that an AMRAP workout gives!

Yep, just last night I reminded myself exactly how much 20 minutes of constant movement can hurt you and simultaneously give you the endorphin fireworks. Boy, I love the endorphin fireworks! (Even if I had to agonize on the gym floor for good 5 minutes until I managed to get up.)

If you are unfamiliar with the term, AMRAP stands for As Many Rounds/Reps As Possible – you repeat a certain rep scheme of exercises in a given time frame as many times as you can. This type of workout is extremely useful if you want to learn how to pace yourself and at the same time improve your endurance and stamina. The best thing is that you can challenge yourself by repeating the workout a few weeks later and try to beat your previous record. A great way to track your fitness progress!

So, if you are ready for a sweaty challenge, prepare your timer and check out the 10 AMRAP workouts I’ve selected to share with you.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I
    submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to
    the whole thing. Do you have any points for newbie blog
    writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

      Hey Shelton,
      Thank you so much for your feedback and sorry something went wrong with your first comment!
      We’ve been getting quite a few questions like that recently (although we still have a loooong way to go), that’s why we’ve decided to add a blogging section on the site. We’ll use it to share what we’ve learned so far about maintaining a blog and how we try to improve. It’s coming in the next few days! But if you have any specific questions, feel free to hit me up with an email – [email protected], I’ll be happy to help you with whatever I can!

    I do love something that gets the heart going, although since discovering weight lifting I do prefer that over cardio. Plus, I have an irrational level of hate for burpees! Nice to see another lady on the bloggersphere who lifts!

      That is interesting to hear! When I found weightlifting for me, I also started to neglect all the cardio routines & functional training routines! But at one point I started balancing it out more because I started missing it! So know I combine weightlifting & cardio, similar to how most of the time people at Crossfit are doing it! And let’s be honest – who loves burpees? 😀
