After the movie 300 came out, there was a big buzz going around as to how exactly the actors become so ripped for the movie. I decided to check out the workout today to see how hard it was. Here's a link to it: The 300 Workout: Can You Handle It? The workout consists of: 25 pull-ups 50 deadlifts at 135 pounds 50 push-ups 50 box jumps with a 24-inch box 50 "floor wipers" (a core and shoulders exercise at 135 pounds) 50 "clean and press" at 36 pounds (a weight-lifting exercise) 25 more pull-ups -- for a total of 300 reps The idea is to go through the entire list above without stopping for breaks. I decided to cut those numbers in half (the rep numbers, not the weight numbers) and did it earlier today. It felt pretty intense throughout. I'm going to shoot for doing the full 300 reps in the near future. One of my brothers did the full 300 reps earlier today with me. The record for the entire workout is 18 minutes and 11 seconds and is held by one of the actors in the movie.
