After 300 came out a few years back much was made of the famous training regimen the actors went through to perfect their physiques for the camera.
The point is to complete the workout as fast as possible. By taking minimal breaks between sets you’ll add a cardio component into your strength-training workout. You do a total of six exercises and perform 50 repetitions for each one.
6 x 50 = 300. Get it?
However, much of the exercise routine can’t be done in ordinary home gyms. Here then is a modified 300 workout for all you fitness buffs.
1. 50 pull-ups.
A tad old-school? You bet. But pull-ups remain one of the most effective strength training exercises. It uses multiple muscle groups and gets your heart rate going very quickly.
2. 50 pushups.
Sound simple? Try this: Put your feet on a stability ball. Now place two kettlebells on the floor before you and balance yourself on the handles. Now perform your pushups. It’s sure to give you a nice burn.
3. 50 kettlebell swings.
The weight of the kettlebell depends on you. I recommend starting with a 25 lb. kettlebell then splitting up the workout. Do 25 reps swinging the kettlebell with your right hand then 25 with the left. Use a heavier weight as you progress.
4. 50 Standing Shoulder Presses.
You can use barbells, kettlebells or something bigger if you’d like. Just don’t use a ton of weight because you have to do 50 of them!
5. 50 jump squats.
This is the exercise that people seem to hate the most. It burns like crazy and gets your heart racing faster than running or hitting the heavy bag. It’s a great exercise and will help you make significant gains.
6. 50 leg lifts.
You can do them laying down or hanging, it doesn’t really matter which approach you take. The important thing is to give your lower abs some much needed attention.
