Weekend One-Up: Burpee Buy-In and 15-Minute AMRAP

Are you a weekend warrior looking for a challenge? You’ve come to the right place. It’s time to test your abilities—and your mettle. Each week our fitness expert PJ Stahl, owner of PJ Stahl Fitness, lays out a quick workout that measures your level of strength, speed, power, endurance, and skill. Think you can “one-up” our guy? Get ready to throw down.

This week’s challenge—a 15-minute AMRAP. You’ll set your clock for 15 minutes and do as many rounds as possible of:

  • 5 mountain climbers, each leg
  • 10 wall ball squat cleans
  • 15 situps


Here’s the kicker: you have to do what’s called a burpee buy-in. That’s 20 burpees before you even start the workout.

A good score for this challenge is 10 rounds. But if you want to “one-up” PJ, you’ll have to do more than 12 rounds. Watch the video for some helpful hints with the four exercises.
