6 AMRAP CrossFit Kettlebell Workouts to Build Endurance and Strength

AMRAP CrossFit kettlebell workouts should be an important part of a CrossFitters routine. They don’t only build strength but also develop your conditioning and stamina, further boosting your overall performance in CrossFit’s varied workouts.

Kettlebells are known for bridging the gap between strength work and stamina. Their constantly changing centre of gravity replicates the forces that you’d encounter in day-to-day life. Adding kettlebell work to your AMRAP workout – which means “As Many Reps/Rounds As Possible” – means an athlete has to give it their all.

AMRAP workouts are usually short and explosive; you could end up panting on the floor after just 10 minutes of exercise. They allow everyone to work at their own pace even whilst doing the same workout, being challenging at all levels.

There are many reasons why you should train with kettlebells; they activate dozens of muscles and improve your ability to perform fast, powerful movements during an extended period of time. They’re also easily packable and can be used pretty much anywhere.
