You only have 20 minutes so you don’t have time to mess around! This workout gets right into it, and within the first few minutes, you’ll feel your blood flowing and your breath heavy. Since you only need a pair of dumbbells, it’s the perfect workout to do at home or the gym when you want to get in an intense workout that targets every part of your body and leaves you sore tomorrow.
This 20-minute CrossFit workout is an AMRAP, which means “as many rounds as possible.” So set the timer for 20 minutes and don’t stop until the time is up! Jade Jenny, head CrossFit coach and owner of Champlain Valley CrossFit says AMRAP workouts are meant to push your pace, to be competitive with yourself and to see how many rounds you can get. Complete this workout, write down how many rounds you get through in your fitness journal, and the next time you do it, see if you can get more reps in!
