c) Pushups - 50 reps
d) 24-inch Box jumps - 50 reps
e) Floor wipers - 50 reps

That's a test, not a workout. The guys from 300 done a different workout every day, kind of like Crossfit.

No it's actually called "The 300 workout"

It's on the men's health site.
My brother does this and he has been toning up from it.
I doubt he does the full set of reps but he is doing this workout.


Sometimes a movie takes off for no apparent reason.

And sometimes the reason is readily apparent. Take 300, for instance. This epic account of an ancient battle between the Spartans and Persians contained the kind of eye-popping visuals and head-snapping violence that men can't get enough of.

Plenty of women, too, appreciated the parade of ripped bodies. The movie made a record $70 million in its first weekend and earned $210 million domestically since March.

The release of the DVD today will no doubt extend the phenomenon.

At MensHealth.com, 300 has been a sensation as well. Ever since Gerard Butler appeared on the cover of the March issue of Men's Health, visitors to the website have been clicking on everything 300.

By far the most popular video on our site since March has been the "300 Workout," as demonstrated here by Men's Health contributor Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, M.Sc., a strength and conditioning coach in Toronto.

"It looks simple on paper, but I promise you, it's a great workout," posted one man on MensHealth.com.

Another posting noted the extreme interest generated: "I sense a new 'Brad Pitt in Fight Club' standard being born."

Butler's training for 300 simultaneously built muscle, increased muscular endurance, and stripped fat fast. To achieve movie muscles that pop, he and other cast members used this grueling, unorthodox 300-rep rite of passage.

Ballantyne put together this workout video series for you to follow along with and -- provided you're fit like a king-- try for yourself.

"One actor from 300, Andrew Pleavin, completed the workout in 18 minutes,11 seconds," says Ballantyne. "He didn't practice this workout...and neither did I. My time? 19:07. My butt was kicked by a Hollywood actor!"

"It's a brutal workout, starting out strong and slowing down, finishing at a crawl," explains Ballantyne. "I don't plan on doing that any time soon or, really, ever again."


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

a) Pullups - 25 reps
b) Deadlifts with 135lbs - 50 reps
c) Pushups - 50 reps
d) 24-inch Box jumps - 50 reps
e) Floor wipers - 50 reps
f) Single-arm Clean-and-Press with 36lbs Kettlebell - 50 reps
g) 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

like virus said this is more of a test, if you watch the 300 journals their coach says he changes their workouts everyday.

Watched the dvd other day and all the special features. I dont think i could do all of the above work out ( wouldnt want to tbh like my work out). In the diarys the coach said they never did the same work out twice and also that there was a vast amount of exercise. From standard - to endurance - gymnastics - to weight lifting . + for a film like that they would have at least one nutrionalist expert designing a diet regime for them. Alot of expert help. Unless i had the same i wouldnt expect to end up looking like any of those guys.

You don't need help from a nutrionalist to have a good body. If you do a bit of research you'll find eating healthy isn't difficult.

I never said you did im a firm believer in eating healthy and exercising well and not worrying too much and your body will take care of its self. But thats not what i said . What i said was that, that work out there doesnt mention the fact that the people in that film would have had an expert nutritionlist working out every gram of every piece of food in there diet. All im saying is that if you followed the above exercises you would not look like ud just walked off the set of 300. I know i couldnt look like that without the same help those films stars did. If you think you can then all respect to you.

I don't think anyone thinks they will look like the stars from the movie from it but maybe see some results in toning from it.
