CrossFit 623 - 9 Best CrossFit AMRAP Workouts to Reach Your Fitness Goals

In CrossFit, AMRAP stands for ‘as many reps as possible’ and the term is a staple of many workouts of the day (aka WODs) conducted by Crossfitters around the globe. Because AMRAPs challenge you to push harder, they are one of the best types of workouts you can do in effort to reach your fitness goals. AMRAPs are also beginner-friendly; so regardless of your skill level, you can participate and benefit. The following information explains what exactly an AMRAP is and lists nine of the best ones you can do to lose weight quickly.

What Does AMRAP Mean?

CrossFit 623 - What Does AMRAP Stand For?

As mentioned, AMRAP commonly refers to ‘as many reps as possible,’ but it can also stand for ‘as many rounds as possible.’ Rounds are made up of sets and sets are made up of repetitions (reps). For example an AMRAP may ask that you do 10 muscle-up reps, 10 squat reps, and 10 burpee reps in sequence as many times as you can within five minutes. Every time you complete 10 single reps of muscle-ups, squats, or burpees, you’ve completed a set; every time you complete 10 reps of each exercise, you’ve completed a round. So it doesn’t really matter whether you refer to the ‘r’ in AMRAP as ‘reps’ or ‘rounds;’ you are doing the exercises over and over as many times as you can within the allotted time limit – essentially meaning that you’re doing both.
