Killer Equipment-Free AMRAP Workout
As already mentioned, you won’t need anything but your own bodyweight and a small amount of space for this workout. You’ll need to set a timer to count down from 12 minutes, then complete as many rounds as possible before the timer beeps:
Work as hard as you can! You’ll get what you put into this workout, so don’t hold back.
Candlestick Jump Ups
How to do it: From standing, squat down, roll onto your back, and lift your legs off of the floor straight above you in a candlestick position. Try and keep your knees as straight as possible and your toes pointed as you contract your abs.
Bend your knees and quickly lower them to the ground touching or almost touching your butt. Use momentum from the roll and lean forward and stand up.
Immediately jump into the air with your arms above your head, then repeat.
Push Up In/Outs
How to do it: Get into a push up position with your shoulders directly over your hands and your arms close to your sides. Lower down and do a push up, focusing on keeping your arms as close to your sides as you can.
Next, push up explosively and land your hands in a wide push up position. Lower down and do a wide push up.
Push up explosively and return to the starting position.
Burpee Lateral Jumps
How to do it: Stand up straight, then drop down and do a burpee and instead of the jump up, jump as far to you can to one side. Immediately do another burpee then jump back to the starting position.
How to do it: Start in a lunge position with your back knee touching or almost touching the floor.
Jump up explosively and switch legs so that your rear leg is in the front and front leg is in the rear. Repeat as fast as you can.
How to do it: Lay on your stomach with your arms straight by your ears. Raise your arms and legs simultaneously as high as you can, making sure to squeeze your butt as you do so. Hold, then lower back down and repeat.
Split Leg V Up Combo
How to do it: Lie on your back with your arms straight above your head and your legs straight. Pull your belly button towards the floor, then raise your right leg as you reach both arms towards your right foot at the same time. Lower back down then repeat on the left side.
Next, raise both legs up at once as you reach your hands towards your toes. That’s one rep.
AllWhites Strawberry Protein Pancake Recipe & Giveaway
Although we love a quick and easy post-workout smoothie, protein pancakes are another delicious and super satisfying option that help to encourage faster recovery and don’t actually take that much time to make.
We’re using AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites as an additional protein source in these pancakes because with 5 grams of protein and only 25 calories per serving, they’re a low-calorie protein source perfect for post-workout nutrition. Plus, they’re a great addition to protein pancakes because they help make them nice and fluffy without adding fat (ideal for your post-workout meal) or many extra calories.
Here’s how to make this AllWhites Strawberry Protein Pancake Recipe:
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites
2 Tbsp Greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, chopped
Blend everything together except for the strawberries until there are no remaining chunks. Heat a nonstick pan to medium high (a large or pancake pan works best). Pour the batter onto the pan in small circular shapes, then evenly sprinkle strawberry chunks on each. When the pancakes start to bubble, flip and cook the other side.
Top with more strawberries, maple syrup, yogurt, or whatever you like!
