300 Bodyweight Workout Challenge (Videos)

When the “300” movie came out I was so impressed and fascinated with the physiques of the Spartan Warrior Actors and especially King Leonidas (Gerard Butler.)

They were muscular, shredded and in amazing shape. I don’t remember any other movie having the amount of actors with such incredible bodies

And right around the same time the “300” workout came out. So of course I had to try it and man was it brutal. On paper it looked easy but actually going through the workout was so tough and such a humbling experience.

The actual 300 workout was the brainchild of fitness trainer Mark Twight. Because of his training plans, many of the actors went from being around 40 pounds overweight to lean, mean fighting machines…in a matter of months.

In Twight’s own word about the routine he created…

“When describing the workout, it is more accurate to say that it requires strength, power endurance and aerobic fitness, as it is generally a person’s inability to continuously produce the power needed to do the movement over and over again.”[2]

The original workout is done in a giant set with consisting of 300 reps. You go from one exercise to the next with little to no rest in between.

The aim is to complete all exercises in the fastest time possible with the goal of beating that time in subsequent workout sessions.

The workouts have their own unique set up, some following the original 300 while others are different.

One thing is for sure…with each circuit your aim is to complete the 300 reps in the fastest time possible.
