Think you can go all out like the pros do in a supercross main event? Time to prove it in this all-out AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible) workout created by our good friend Greg Hammond at Concept 2. The workout is called "Cry Me a River," but the #1 rule is no crying. Tom Hanks famously preached, "There's no crying in baseball" and I'm extending that to training. Good luck!

This time of this AMRAP is listed below. One time through and you are done so give it your all.

The Movements

Warm up for 10-minutes then:

3 min Kettlebell swings (can use a dumbbell ) 24 kg or 50 lb. dumbbell (scale weight as needed)
1 min rest

3 min Box jumps 26 inch box
1 min rest

3 min “hand release” pushups
1 min rest

3 min Max calories on Concept2 rower. (Substitute any form of cardio)

Score equals total number of reps plus calories.

Couple of Rules:

  • 50 lb kettle bell swings are pretty advanced so if you need to scale, try 35 lbs
  • Box jumps - If you don't have a box use your bike stand
  • Hands must come off the floor on the BOTTOM of the pushup. Your body will on the floor
  • If you do not have a rower substitute any other form of cardio like a run sprint or jump rope. "Max calories" means to go as hard as you can!

How to do the challenge.

  1. It's very easy to follow. Set a stop watch for 3-minutes and do as many kettle bell swings as possible. Rest for 1-minute.
  2. Set your stop watch for 3-minutes and do as many box jumps as possible. Rest again for 1-minute.
  3. Set your stop watch for 3-minutes and do as many hand release pushups as possible. Rest again for 1-minute.
  4. Row for 3-minutes as hard as you can and record your max number of calories.
  5. Count your total number of reps for each exercise and calories on the rower. Add all those numbers together and that is your total score.

Post your score in the comment section. Let's see some videos people!
