Here’s a workout which does exactly what it says on the tin. A body weight triple. In that there are 3 rounds; you do each round for 3 minutes; and you do them 3 times. You need something to mark out an area approx 20 metres. This could just be whatever you have to hand – like jumpers for goal posts in the good old days! Then you just need a stop watch and some energy! If you don’t have time to do each round 3 times – just do what you can.

The Rounds

Set your timer and get ready to work!

Round 1.

  • Lunge walk from one end of the area to the other
  • Once you’re there, do 10 x squat jumps and 10 x press ups
  • Then RUN back to the starting point and repeat.

Round 2.

  • Complete 10 x full range squats (ATG if you can) and then bear crawl to the other end of the marked out area
  • Once you’re there, broad jump all the way back to the starting point and repeat.

Round 3.

  • Perform 5 x plank walk outs
  • On the last walk out, remain in press up or full plank position
  • Complete 5 x single legged mountain climbers on each leg (leg up in the air then down across the body to the chest)
  • Then onto your back with your feet in the air and do 10 x toe touches.


I want to say “simples” but I tested it on my class on Friday, and it really wasn’t! We actually did each round for 3 minutes, then repeated each round for 2 minutes and ran out of time before repeating for 1 min. So how you use these rounds is entirely up to you. Regardless, you need to push yourself. That said, this is a great one to do with other people so that you can compete against them!
