AMRAP & Power Workout

Meet Morgan Stiffler, B.S. Exercise Science from Bloomsburg University

Morgan Stiffler

Morgan is a Personal Trainer and Parisi Sports Performance Coach at the Newtown Athletic Club. When she attended Bloomsburg University, she began weightlifting and playing rugby. Becoming a more fit adult she realized the advantages she gained. Through building knowledge and confidence in others, she hopes to help the people around her be healthier and get the most that life has to offer!

Here is an AMRAP (as many reps as possible) power workout that Morgan does when she wants a high-intensity workout!


This workout revolves around power production and overall conditioning. I prefer to keep the weight low to work on getting under the bar quickly. I used the front squats eccentrically (three second lowering) and isometrically (three second hold at the bottom) to increase the time under tension, which works the weak points in normal workout movements. Eccentric training helps with flexibility as well as strength. I use AMRAP (as many reps or rounds as possible) to keep the intensity high and to condition myself. You might only be able to do three rounds and be totally wiped out in seven minutes but the week after you might be able to fit in  four rounds of the exercises, and so on. It’s a different style of training to only take rest when you need it, and to compete with yourself for time. It’s important to keep the same amount of reps, calories and distance the same, as you can accurately track your workouts over time.
