When a workouts is scored as “For Reps,” “For Rounds and Reps,” or “Max Reps,” the goal is to complete as many rounds/repetitions as possible (“AMRAP“) within a given amount of time.
This is also known as a “time priority” (as opposed to “task priority“) workout, because the goal is to do as much work as possible in a fixed amount of time.
The score for AMRAP workouts is expressed as the total number of repetitions completed (eg: 303 reps). Scores for AMRAP workouts that include repeating rounds may also be expressed, for simplicity, as the number of completed rounds plus repetitions of the last incomplete round (eg: 10+13).
Example: “AMRAP in 8 minutes, 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 double-unders” means on an 8-minute clock, complete the 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, then 15 double-unders, then repeat that cycle until time is up. Record your score as the total rounds and repetitions completed by the 8-minute mark. A score of 10 rounds plus 3 pull-ups would be written as 303 reps (or 10+3).
