This Fast-Paced 20-Minute CrossFit Workout Will Leave You Breathless and Sore as Hell
Since you only need a pair of dumbbells, this is the perfect workout to do at home when you want to get in an intense workout that targets every part of your body and will leave you sore tomorrow. This workout gets right into it, and within the first few minutes, you'll feel your blood flowing and your breathing getting heavy.
This 20-minute CrossFit workout is an AMRAP, which means "as many rounds as possible." So set the timer for 20 minutes and don't stop until the time is up! Jade Jenny, head CrossFit coach and owner of Champlain Valley CrossFit, says AMRAP workouts are meant to push your pace, to be competitive with yourself, and to see how many rounds you can get. Complete this workout, write down how many rounds you get through in your fitness journal, and the next time you do it, see if you can get in more reps!
