Original 300 Workout by Mark Twight

300 movieThe original 300 workout, designed for the actors of the movie 300, is definitely a challenge. Here’s how it goes:

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) 1-arm Clean & Press with 36lbs Kettlebell - 50 reps
g) Pullups - 25 reps

And remember, there is NO scheduled rest between exercises. Although eventually, you’ll slow down.

has done this workout in 19 minutes and 7 seconds, but he cautions people, not to do this all the time. This is something you have to work towards and do as a “1 time” shot to test yourself every other month or so. Read Craig’s thoughts on the . The 300 workout was done against the clock, the quicker you could get it done, the higher you ranked. Mark Twight, the creator, used it as a way for the 300 movie actors to compete against one another in their fitness levels.

If you’re going to do this, train for it, then do it on the clock. Then train for it for a few more months, then try and beat your time. That’s how it works. If it takes you an hour the first time, then 55 minutes the second time, you got better. Get it?

My goal is simple: to just complete it, and then to do it in under an hour by the end of the year. I'm not in THAT great a shape yet, but I intend to be. This 40th year for me is going to be my best!

Craig Ballantyne, the creator of Turbulence Training, is sometimes credited with the workout because of his work with Mens Health magazine. He put together the 300 workout video and now gets credited for the actual workout.

I didn’t actually create the 300 workout.

It was designed by Mark Twight. He trained the guys for the movie.

I just showed all the exercises in a video I did for Men’s Health.

That looks like a great workout, but it means I would have to get up from the couch.
