8 Minute AMRAP – Legs and Core

Here’s a quick 8-minute AMRAP (as many reps/rounds as possible) workout. Push yourself for the entire 8 minutes to complete this workout as many times as possible. Take a quick break when needed, but work your ass off for just 8 minutes to get the most out of this workout.

I completed 4 rounds + 13 reps of this workout.

Set a timer for 8 minutes and complete the following back to back:

Suitcase Squat  – 5 reps/side
Weighted Sit-up – 10 reps
One-Leg Row and Tuck – 10 reps/wide

——————————————————————————————

Suitcase Squat (left/right) Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms by sides, holding a dumbbell in right hand. Lower into a squat bringing weight as close to the ground as possible and repeat.Complete reps then switch to the left hand.

Weighted Sit Up Start laying down with legs straight and holding a dumbbell with both hands back over your head. Sit up- keeping the reaching with the weight toward your feet. Bend your knees slightly if needed. Lower back to star, bringing the dumbbell back toward the floor behind you.
One Leg Row and In (left/right) Stand holding a dumbbell/kettlebell in your right hand and put all weight on your left leg as you raise your right leg behind you as you hinge forward and hold the weight straight down from your chest, left arm reached out past your head for balance. Row the weight toward your chest bringing your elbow back as you bend your elevated leg tucking the knee toward your chest. Lower the weight and straighten your leg back behind you. Repeat keeping all weight on your standing leg and leaning forward. Complete reps then switch sides.
