AS MANY ROUNDS AS POSSIBLE
This training protocol (AMRAP for short) involves completing as many rounds of a circuit as you can in a given time with minimal rest. I love this as you can use your previous score as a target to beat, so it’s you versus you. Choose four exercises, one from each group, and perform ten reps of each to complete one circuit. Set the timer for 10 minutes and repeat the circuit as many times as you can until the buzzer stops.
Whichever protocol you choose (check out all six in the book), there will be some exercises that you feel capable of doing and those that you may feel are too advanced for your level of fitness. Start well within your abilities and build from there. It’s your body, so you’re in control: you choose the exercises, the circuit and your goals. NOTE For single leg exercises, the number of repetitions is for each leg, eg, ten reps of side lunges means ten on each side.
