Workout Details

Love cardio and bodyweight workouts? Then this workout is for you! This workout is perfect for travelling since all you need is a box or bench and a place to run. You’ll be alternating between cardio and a lower body bodyweight exercise.

The goal is to move through this entire workout with little rest. Just try to keep moving. Here’s how it looks:

Complete 3 Rounds:

  1. 400 m (0.25 mile) run
  2. 50 steps up
  3. 400 m run
  4. 50 walking lunges
  5. 400 m run
  6. 50 air squats

Workout Notes

  • If you don’t have space for walking lunges, do reverse lunges.
  • The 400 m runs should be done at a moderate pace. The pace should feel a bit uncomfortable but something you could maintain for a while.
  • Use an approximately 20 inch bench or box for the step ups. Complete 50 in total, 25 per leg. Alternate legs whenever you want.
  • Not ready for 3 rounds? Try just 1 or 2!
  • The workout can also be scaled by reducing the reps of step ups, lunges and squats to 20-30.
