AMRAP” means As Many Rounds as Possible or As Many Repetitions as Possible. Either way it’s a type of circuit workout in which an athlete completes the specified exercises as many times as possible within the given time frame. Athletes should break only when needed, to keep the intensity high.

For example: AMRAP in 8 minutes, 5 Pull-Ups, 10 Push-Ups, 15 Double-Unders means complete the pull-ups, then push-ups, then double-unders, then repeat until time is up. When the eight minutes is up, record your score as the total rounds and repetitions completed (a score of 10 rounds plus 3 pull-ups would be written as 10+3).

AMRAP workouts are great for measuring fitness. Athletes can track how much work they’re able to complete in the specified time, so they can compete agains themselves – or compare their score to others’ – each time. By doing the movements correctly and pushing hard athletes should be able to complete more rounds (or reps) over time.
