AMRAP CrossFit Kettlebell Workouts are a very efficient way to work on your endurance and strength. Since AMRAP workouts cannot be performed slowly (obviously), combining them with kettlebells can bridge the gap between strength training and cardio.
AMRAP stands for “as many reps/rounds as possible” and is a perfect format for building intensity, conditioning, endurance and mental toughness.
Kettlebells, with their uneven weight, engage a vast number of muscles and reflect real-life activities like no other accessory. The whole body can be trained with just this one tool, and kettlebell workouts can be an incredibly efficient form of training.
When it comes to AMRAP workouts, mental toughness is key; high reps and the clock ticking down are certainly aspects to work through. Endurance WODs in your Crossfit training are a vital way to build mental strength, aerobic capacity and the ability to just keep going.
