Exercise with Andy: Living Room Workout 31

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

Welcome to my living room workout series! Each week, I share a workout from my personal exercise routine — and then do it in real time so you can follow along. These workouts are optional and are simply one of the many ways you can accomplish your daily exercise.

Living Room Workout 31

This week’s workout is a little different in that we’re not working with any sort of interval. Instead, we’re going to do an AMRAP, which stands for “as many rounds as possible.” And we’re going to work (at our own personal pace) for twelve straight minutes.

We’re going to do a circuit of three exercises. Watch the video for an explanation of each movement, plus how to modify them to your fitness level. Here’s what the workout looks like:


  • 8 arch rocks
  • 12 knee down and ups
  • 16 duck under lateral squats

Remember: there’s no “right” or “wrong” way to approach these living room workouts. Listen to your body and work at the speed and range-of-motion that feels okay to you. That doesn’t mean you should go easy on yourself, but it does mean you should feel free to modify the movements.
