What is an AMRAP?

The acronym stands for As Many Rounds or Reps as possible.

An AMRAP workout works like this: You have a certain number of reps of each exercises to complete in every set before moving onto the next. Once you have completed all the sets you go back to the start and begin again. That counts as one round.

The aim is to perform either as many reps and rounds in the given time. Between the rounds you can take little breaks but they shouldn’t be too long, since time is limited. The aim is intensity. AMRAPS are scored by the number of reps and / or rounds you completed in the time frame.
