Double Circuit Bootcamp Session For Twice The Workout

You’re stuck with one of my awesome workouts today. In case you missed it, yesterday I announced

I like to pack light when I can for my bootcamp sessions so rather then bringing something for everyone, I like to split the group up and use a double trouble circuit like below.

Double Up Circuit

Equipment: Cones, Mats, Tyres, Ropes

Warm Up

Reverse Races (from Outdoor Fitness Games)

Get into groups of 3 people. Each group has one person facing the finish line while the other two are facing away from the finish line. All three people have their arms linked together.

Each group of three people line up side by side at a starting line. The finish line can be anywhere from 20 yards to 100 yards away.

On the coaches “Go!”, each groups center person, with arms still linked, runs or lunges to the finish line as quickly as possible.


Split the group into two even groups. One group will start on circuit 1 the other will start on circuit 2.

Spend 7 minutes completing AMRAP on each circuit, then take a 2 minute break and swap circuits. Repeat so that each group does both circuits a total of two times.


Circuit 1 – to be completed with a tyre (or DB or KB), clients should carry the tyre from station to station. Perform 15 reps on each.

  1. Overhead Press
  2. Reverse Lunges – 15 each leg
  3. Mountain Climbers – hands on tyre
  4. Squats – hold tyre
  5. Circuit – run around exterior of circuit holding tyre

Circuit 2 – Bodyweight. Perform 20 reps on each.

  1. Prone Pulldowns
  2. Oblique V-sit
  3. Pushup to Plank (suicide planks) – 10 each arm, 20 total
  4. Rope Slams
  5. Side Plank Hip Drops – 10 each side, 20 total
If you want to add a competitive edge, add up each team’s number of rounds.


Note: On the second round to increase the intensity I lessened the reps to 10 for both circuits 1 and 2.


This workout has since appeared in The Little Bootcamp Book of Tyres and Ropes. A collection of the most awesome tyres and ropes exercises, drills and workouts.
