Happy Friday my friends! Today’s fitness Friday post is a fun and quick, but intense, 5 minute AMRAP workout that you can do anywhere. I love AMRAP workouts because they are an easy way to track your progress. AMRAP = As Many Rounds As Possible (at least for this workout…you can also have As Many Reps As Possible if it’s timed intervals).

For this workout you just need to set a timer for 5 minutes. I use the clock app on my iPhone but you can use a kitchen timer, GymBoss timer, old school stop watch, or whatever other timer you have on hand.

You will do each of the following exercises in order for the required reps then if you need to rest, then move on and repeat it all again. One round = going through the exercises once. Count how many rounds you get in 5 minutes, then try and beat that score the next time you come back to this workout. If you want to do this 5 minute workout 4 times through, make it a 20 minute workout! This is a workout you can do anywhere so if you are traveling next week for Thanksgiving, you can take this workout with you and do it wherever you are. Get your family to join in too and make it a fun way to burn extra calories together!

Exercises:

10 reps – Push-Up to Crab Toe Touch Dips (1 rep = 1 push and 1 crab toe touch dips set)

20 reps – Alternating Side Lunges (equals 10 each leg)

30 reps – Side Lunge Hops (equals 15 on each leg)

I hope you enjoy today’s workout! If you would like more 5 minute AMRAP workouts join me for a fun 30-day Beat the Bulge Holiday Fit Challenge!

Comment below and let me know how many rounds you got through in 5 minutes!

Stay Healthy my Friends!
