The 300 Workout or How to Look Like a Spartan

If this workout doesn’t kill you it will get you as shredded as a Spartan. Or, at least the portrayal of Spartans in the epic film 300, that is to say ripped.
The exercises in the 300 Workout are basic. Some of them were definitely around back in the glory days of Sparta. Although, when you spend your days lifting bales of hay or donkeys and doing manual labor instead of sitting in front of a computer screen, Floor Wipers become a lot less important.
In this workout, you do 5 exercises. That’s it. Five. It’s easy to remember but hard as hell to do.
Pull-Ups 25
Deadlift 50 (reps, non-stop)
Push-Ups 50
Box Jumps* 50 reps
Floor Wipers 50 reps
Kettle Ball Clean Press 25 with each arm
Pull-Ups 25
That’s 300 reps total. Do NOT try to do this right away. Build up to it. Start with 100 total and, when you can, move on.
Men’s Health breaks it down to Beginner, Intermediate and Gerard Butler’s level.
It’s cheap, you can do it almost anywhere, and it will get you ripped.
Watch a video of the workout.
*Box Jump: Jump up onto a 2′ bench or platform.
