Tuesday Training

December 21, 2010 § Leave a comment

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time to kick your workout into shape!  What are you waiting for?  Every Tuesday, Spartan Race Blog offers you training tips and advice.

It’s only fitting that they inaugural Tuesday Training post features a 300 WORKOUT offered by the experts at Men’s Health.  This is what the actors in 300 did to buff up before the film.

For a Spartan-sized challenge to your daily routine, consider this your new fitness gauntlet:

Pullups – 25 reps
Deadlifts with 135 lbs – 50 reps
Pushups – 50 reps
24-inch box jumps – 50 reps
Floor wipers – 50 reps
Single-arm Clean-and-Press with 36 lbs Kettlebell – 50 reps
Pullups – 25 reps

All exercises are done without scheduled rest between moves. Obviously this is an advanced workout…you shouldn’t do it unless you are already in great shape.

Fortunately, this can all easily be adapted. Appropriate exercises can be subbed in: Drop down to 150 total reps, or 4-6 exercises of 15-25 reps each. For example, you might try this workout, great for a guy with moderate fitness:

15 bodyweight rows
25 bodyweight squats
15 pushups
50 jumping jacks
20 mountain climbers
10 close grip pushups
15 bodyweight rows

Here’s a video demonstration of the workout.
