Workout with Jenni Lynn and Chris as they try to beat their own and each other’s reps in this fun S’WET AMRAP Challenge.  This quick 15-minute pool workout features five of their favorite S’WET moves, taught with “as many reps as possible” (AMRAP).  Each move is performed for 60 seconds followed by 30 seconds of rest and then repeated so that you can challenge yourself to beat your first round of reps. 

AMRAP is yet another form of high intensity interval training (HIIT) that features basic moves taught with all-out intensity, followed by a brief rest period.  Intermittent training that includes high intensity work cycles followed by rest/recovery has been proven to be an efficient way to elevate the metabolic rate and burn body fat.  In the video, the work cycle involves performing as many reps as possible in 60 seconds, followed by 30 seconds of rest.  However, AMRAP can be taught with the timing cycles of your choice. 

Hopefully by now, Poolfit subscribers are starting to identify simple ways to create challenging workouts in the pool.  AMRAP is as simple as it gets.  Just pick out 10 of your favorite water exercises and perform each for as many reps as possible for 60 seconds, followed by 30 seconds of rest for a 15-minute round.  Repeat the rounds two times for a 30-minute workout.  You can even consider three rounds for a 45-minute workout.  Add in a warm-up and cooldown and you have a 60-minute workout.     

Best of S’WET AMRAP is not only a challenge to do, but it is fun to watch Jenni Lynn and Chris compete with each other and against their own times in the second round.  This video is another example of filming with the new boom mic system so that the viewer feels like they are in the pool with the instructor.  We hope you enjoy this workout and that you get an opportunity to try it out with the new playlist feature. 

What is the playlist feature?  On the IOS app, you will notice that the bottom navigation bar now has a tab called Playlist.  On that tab you can do two things.  You can create a playlist that plays videos one right after the other so that you don’t have to get out of the pool and load a new video or touch your device with wet hands.  Also featured on the playlist tab, you can add your favorite videos which will make creating playlists much easier.  Ultimately, the new playlist feature is designed to allow you customize your pool workouts with multiple videos.  Please let us know how you like it and if you have questions.  Email us at info@poolfit.tv
