Fit in Five Minutes: 3 Move AMRAP

If you have just five minutes, this is a workout sure to fit into your busy life. An AMRAP workout stands for “As Many Rounds As Possible.” Perform all the reps for each movement in the circuit to equal one round. Complete as many rounds as you can in 5 minutes. This workout is sure to give you a full body workout!

10 Banded Air Squats

Step 1: Place a resistance band just above your knees. Begin in a standing position, feet shoulder-width apart, toes pointed slightly out from parallel.

Step 2: Keeping your weight in your heels, bend your knees and lower your buttocks down and back, as if being pulled from behind from a belt.

Step 3: Using your arms as a counterbalance, reach upward as the crease of your hips drops slightly below your kneecaps, pushing your knees outwards as you squat, using the band for resistance.

Step 4: Return to the starting position.

10 Dive Bombers 🏊🏼‍♀️💣

Step 1: Begin in a plank position, ensuring tight and drawn in core.

Step 2: Pike body and lift hips into the air, dropping head down through shoulders.

Step 3: Bending your arms, slowly dive down toward the floor, swooping body down close to the ground, to upward dog position.

Step 4: Return to piked position and repeat.

10 Bench Crunches

Step 1: Begin by lying on a bench, upper body and legs slightly raised off the bench. Remember to keep your core tight throughout the movement.

Step 2: At the same time, bring your knees to a 90 degree angle while lifting your upper body off the bench until the fronts of your thighs hit your chest.

Step 3: Return to the starting position and repeat.

Three moves, five minutes…seems easy enough, right? I promise you, you’ll be burning calories without burning away minutes, but you’ll absolutely feel the burn. 🔥
