Find a place that has lots of space to move around, a place that is cool, and a place where you are comfortable with minimal distractions.

What Is AMRAP and Why Is It Important?

AMRAP? What does it stand for? Pretty simple actually,  AMRAP means: “As Many Reps As Possible.” In practice you would incorporate “AMRAP”  during your training session, pumping out as many reps as you can in a certain amount of time. A lot of time I encourage this concept at the end of a set, as a finisher to bring the muscle to full fatigue while using a lower weight than you would use during the sets you are doing for maximum burn.  Plus AMRAP is a really great way to challenge yourself to push till there is nothing left!

Full Body - Bodyweight Workout

There is no time like the present to make working out a priority.  The saying “there is no better feeling than a finished workout” is pretty much fact. Sometimes we literally have to drag ourselves to the gym, but nine times out of ten we leave with an endorphin flow and a bounce in our step. Not to mention the mental clarity and feeling of “I can do what I put my mind to” that influences much of our attitude in the hours post workout.  So I’m going to cut right to the chase and share a workout you can try today to either get started or to mix it up and try something new.
