Wednesday Workout: Quickie 20 minute body weight AMRAP

Hi! I’m popping in this morning to share a quickie workout I did while I was in Maine a few weekends ago. When I got up, I got changed right into my workout clothes but just wasn’t sure I was really feeling a workout. This rarely happens to me, so I decided to just go with it and if I decided to workout later, great. If not, great. I ended up offering to vacuum and mop for my parents, which, in a 3,000 sq. foot house is quite a workout in and of itself! I loveeee those types of active chores so even though I was helping my parents, I was really helping myself get more movement in 😉

However, after I finished cleaning I found myself feeling more motivated to get a little workout in. The sun was shining and I had the privilege of working out outside in private, so I came up with a quickie 20 minute body weight AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) workout that left me sweaty, newly tanned and sore the next day. Win, win, win in my book!

You’ll notice that the workout format is similar to other workouts you’ve seen on the blog, these 3 in particular:

Got 20 Minutes?
My Favorite Cardio Blasts
Men’s Health Inspired Circuit & Cardio Blast Workout

I mean, why change a good thing if it’s still working for you?! I did change up the exercises, but I love the descending ladder format because mentally it’s nice to know you’re working your way down, right?!

Next time you’re running tight on time and are looking for something you can do quickly with just your body weight, I definitely suggest checking this out! With summer and weekend trips right around the corner, this is one you’ll surely want to take with you!

Questions for you: Do you like to workout outside? Do you like descending or ascending ladder workouts? What’s your favorite way to get in a good workout quickly?
