Wednesday Workout: 20 Minute Bodyweight AMRAP {Cardio/Full Body}

Good morning! It’s been ages since I’ve posted a workout for you, right?! I’m changing that today, though! I love the holidays for an excuse to get off of my regular schedule (eating, drinking, working out, working, etc.), but I have to say that getting back ON schedule is a pretty awesome feeling, too. So, if you’re feeling anything like me and craving a bit of normalcy, then I hope you give this workout a shot- it’s so very normal and classic Monique-like ๐Ÿ˜‰

I did this when I was at home at my parents house a few weeks ago. I wasn’t sure I wanted to workout, so I came up with something that included some of my favorite exercises and told myself that if I didn’t get into it after the first round, I could call it quits. Well, 20 minutes later, I was sweaty and so happy I got in a quickie workout. I’m sure you’ll feel the same way!

A few explanations/videos in case you need a little clarification on anything…

  • Narrow & wide squat jumps– you’re taking a standard squat jump, but adding a little intensity. Check out this video for a demo.
  • Inch worm push-up w/knee tuck– I posted this on Instagram a few weeks ago- check it out here
  • Cursty lunges- alternate right to left, making sure you keep your hips facing the front direction and that your knees don’t go over your toes.
  • T-raise side planks- I posted this on Instagram a few weeks ago, too! I used a band, but you could easily do it without. ย Check it out here
  • Burpee Jacks- Perform a standard burpee (with or without the push-up) and then when you come back up instead of jumping, do a full jumping jack.
  • Supine Extension- Lying on your back with your core engaged, lift your legs and shoulder blades off the ground and then crunch up and then extend back out.

If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I hope you give this a shot- it’s perfect for those days/weeks where you don’t have a lot of time to workout.

Questions for you: Did your schedule change at all throughout the holidays? How do you deal with schedule changes?

    you crush those quick workouts! I got new sneaks and workout clothes for Christmas, ended up running 4.5 miles around the Charles in Watertown on the 26th. Felt good, especially in the beautiful weather we had.

    Great looking quickie workout! My schedule gets all thrown off during the holidays — since I work out at my gym at work, and the college is closed through the holidays, I HAVE to get creative at home! Luckily, this year has been warm enough (until now) for some great outdoor runs/hill work and we also have lots of equipment at home — KBs, bands, ropes, etc. so it’s not hard to stay in the groove. Although some days like yesterday I just lay around on my couch anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

      Good for you! The weather on Monday made for a GREAT day to lay around on your couch ๐Ÿ™‚ You seem to have a great at-home fitness collection- I’m jealous! My goal is to keep building up mine… piece, by piece.
