You know what's scary? Thinking you need to spend hours in the gym to get results. Not so scary? Toning your legs and lifting your booty in less than 30-minutes from wherever the heck you want to! The days are getting shorter and schedules are getting busier (and we aren't even to the holidays yet!). This means we need to make sure to take advantage of every minute of your workout.

Guys, I am OBSESSED! I have found a style of training that gets you in and out of the gym in 30-minutes but gives you the results of working out for 1+ hours. Okay, so maybe I didn't come up with it from scratch. It's a type of training that has been around for a while. But I finally made it the bulk of my workouts and it works! It's a combination of HIIT and strength training and it's called AMRAP or "As Many Reps As Possible." AMRAP is exactly as it sounds. You try to get in as many reps of a set of exercises in a designated amount of time. This is the perfect equation for a short
