It’s time for the fourth and final weekly workout challenge giveaway—where has the month gone?? These AMRAP posts have been so fun for me because it’s the first time I’ve been able to gauge how many people actually do all these silly workouts I post every week. Most people don’t feel compelled to comment on my posts each and every time they try something from P&I (I know I wouldn’t haha), so for all I know, I’ve just been making pretty tutorials to decorate Pinterest boards with these past two years. I’ve LOVED reading all the comments from readers who tried the workouts this month.
You know the drill by now, but I’ll just reiterate that everyone who completes this workout by Sunday evening will be able to enter to win this week’s prize package. It doesn’t matter how many rounds you get through–everyone has an equal chance of winner. I’ll post the giveaway entry post later today–get excited, it’s a big one!
30-Minute Bodyweight AMRAP Workout
Set a timer for 30 minutes and complete as many rounds of the following circuit as possible.
- 10 Jump Lunge to Mountain Climbers: Start in a lunge position and jump up, landing with opposite leg in front, back in a lunge position. Place hands flat on ground and do a mountain climber set (one on each side) so that the same foot ends up in front. Stand back up into lunge position. That’s one rep.
- 10 Breakdance Planks (each side): Start in a plank position. Step your right foot up and out to the side. Bring your left foot across your body, in between your right hand and right foot. Lift your right hand into the air as you twist your body, thrusting your hips up towards the ceiling as you shift your weight onto that left hand. Think of the motion as weaving your left foot through the right side. Reverse the motion back into a plank position. See the exercise in action HERE if you’re reading this like whaaat is this chick talking about (it’s a tough one to explain!).
- 20 Alternating Sumo Squat Jump Leg Lifts: Squat down, legs wide apart and butt back. Jump up, landing back in starting position. Shift your weight to your left leg and kick your right leg straight out to the side, staying low the hold time. Return to starting position. Repeat, only lifting left leg after your next jump squat.
- 20 Leg Lifts to Butt Lifts: Laying on your back with hands under your bum for support, lift legs off so that they’re hovering off the ground. Lift them up, perpendicular to the ground (keeping them straight the whole time) and then lift your butt off the ground, thrusting your feet up towards the ceiling. Lower butt to ground, and then lower legs back down to starting hovering position.

I got through 7 and a half rounds. Seven full rounds and was just about to start the sumo jump squats in the 8th when the timer went off. By the end my quads were on fire! See if you can beat my time!
