“The first handful of rounds might seem reasonable but if you push the pace, you’ll torch your muscles and definitely feel the heart thumping. It’s the perfect routine when you don’t have much time, when the gym is super crowded, or whenever equipment is limited.” —Rob Sulaver, C.S.C.S., founder of Bandana Training
How to do it:
Choose weights for each movement that would be challenging for 10 reps. Set a timer for 10 minutes. Do five squats, then do five dumbbell bench presses. That’s one round. See how many rounds you can complete in 10 minutes. You can do dumbbell floor presses if you don’t have access to a bench.
Make it easier:
• Shorten the time of the workout; make it an eight-minute AMRAP.
Make it harder:
• Make the workout longer
• Add more reps.
