The look like a Spartan workout.

If you have ever read the "300" book or seen the movie you know how 300 Spartan soldiers completely destroyed 10,000 Persian soldiers then you would more than likely have left the movie theatre all pumped up and motivated. The power displayed by those 300 soldiers was motivating to say the least.

Ever since the movie which reached stellar box office levels in the first weekend of release people have been asking about how the actors got to look like a Spartan warrior. It should be emphasized here that all the actors were trained hard for three months before the movie started filming.

All the actors that were given the roles were first tested to find out their current training ability and none of them had been training for less than a year. They were all in peak condition even before the grueling workouts started. These workouts have now become famous and are now called the 300 workouts.

If you would like to know how to look like a Spartan warrior then you should read about what Gerard Butler (who plays King Leonidas in 300) told Men's Health: "You know that every bead of sweat falling off your head, every weight you’ve pumped — the history of that is all in your eyes. That was a great thing, to put on that cape and put on that helmet, and not have to think, shit, I should have trained more. Instead, I was standing there feeling like a lion".

This is important to note because your workouts should be planned and executed like a battle plan and that you should approach it with the attitude that you will make you reach levels never seen before. As they say in the classics you need approach you workouts that you will "Go hard or go home. And home isn'’t an option".

The routine is simple and uses compound movements as the Spartans never did have any Nautilus equipment, fancy gyms to go to and cables or hydraulic weights synchronization. They only had their bodyweight and a few heavy sacks to lift. So here is a sample workout to help you start to look like a Spartan warrior:

Pull-ups – 25 reps

Deadlifts with 135lbs – 50 reps

Pushups – 50 reps

24-inch Box jumps – 50 reps

Floor wipers – 50 reps

Single-arm Clean-and-Press with 36lbs Kettlebell – 50 reps

Pull-ups – 25 reps
