300 Rep Spartan Workout Variation

This is  a high intensity workout circuit that I managed to complete in 12min 30 sec. It can be done in two ways. Firstly you can complete each exercise 30 times before moving on to the next exercise or do 10 repetitions per exercise and then repeat the circuit of exercises 3 times.

Try and break up your pushing exercises ie. push ups and shoulder raises with a core exercise otherwise you just won’t get through the set.

High Intensity workouts like this one really get the juices flowing and the heart rate up and are great for those who don’t have time to get down to the gym.

It would be great to hear your thoughts about this workout and and what time you got for completing it.

      I find that hard to believe Pat. See you soon for a boxing session!

  • Kristina

    Look, 2 push ups into that exercise I am done!! LoL!

    I have a question,, seriously,, I have a psychological barrier with push ups.

    How do I overcome it?

    I have been doing curve bar bicep curls and some other weight lifting and it helped the strength a bit plus of course the chest stuff,, but still I resent push ups.

    Hey Kristina, try doing push ups on your knees first. There must be a progression so you may do 3 sets of 15 on your knees or whatever you are capable of doing. Then build this up over time to 20, 25, 30. Once you feel stronger start doing full push ups on your feet. When you reach failure, drop down to your knees and do a few more until you fail on your knees. Count how many you do and try improve your scores in the next workout. If you make it a challenge you will improve.

    It is very important that you use correct form. Make sure you create some tension in the upper back and lats (squeeze your arm pits down). This stability will help give you more control and a better push. Also make sure you keep your elbows tucked in and core in tight.
