Original Starting post for this thread:
I posted this in another thread but thought it was work a dedicated thread.

it's the 300 workout used by the actors from the movie..it was featured in Men's Health

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

g) Pullups - 25 reps

All exercises are done without scheduled rest between moves. Obviously this is an advanced workout...you shouldn't do it unless you are already in great shape.

Fortunately, this can all easily be adapted. Appropriate exercises can be subbed in: Drop down to 150 total reps, or 4-6 exercises of 15-25 reps each. For example, you might try this workout, great for a guy with moderate fitness:

15 bodyweight rows

25 bodyweight squats

15 pushups

50 jumping jacks

20 mountain climbers

10 close grip pushups

15 bodyweight rows

The beauty in workouts like this is that they're quick, and you can typically get what you need working out 3x a week for 20-40 minute sessions. As far as variation, there are tons of ways to shake a crossfit workout up. check out crossfit dot com . They post daily workouts that are usually this type of bodyweight/circuit theme, and or other similar explosive movements (ie. power cleans, kettle bell swings, flipping tires, etc) .

Also, there are a variety of "300" workouts. The primary uniting characteristic is just the adherence to 300 total repetitions in as short a time as possible. Search youtube for "300 workout" and see all the variations that come up. There are some good ones!

This sounds great. They don't mention- how many times per week did they do this in training for the movie? Is this sufficient to do over and over without any other days workouts?

frequent meals aren't just limited to helping maintain a higher metabolism either. Frequent meals do a lot to help your body maintain a consistent delivery of nutrients outside of just your basic carbs/fats/proteins.

I also noticed a post earlier regarding caffeine post workout. It's benefit is entirely relative to the type of workout. Would I take caffeine before running 8 miles? no. Would I take it before a high intensity program (ie 300/crossfit style workouts)? possibly. Any concerns regarding lags in blood flow, or nutrient delivery can easily be cured with L-Arginine supplementation. A notable concern though, would be that caffeine blocks the uptake of creatine in monohydrate form. This too can be quelled by switching to another type of creatine, and taking the majority of your dosage post workout.

Poly, Your right you do have to be carefully with revving your heart up with caffeine right before a workout, it could end up being too much...heart attack...but the other reason we drink black coffee right before the workout is because we are up so early we couldn't get started without it.

Try working out first thing in the morning with just a little caffeine and no other food! Burn Burn Burn that fat, takes some getting used to though.

I have to eat a little something before I workout. If I don't, I will feel like I am about to pass out during my workout. I can't do as much cardio either.

That workout is similar to the "Crossfit" style of training, very intense. Those type of workouts are all the craze on the web, has a bit of an following.
