The 300 Workout

Spartans! Ready your breakfast and eat hearty... For tonight, we dine in hell! With these words, intermixed in a couple hours of blind, bloody gore, King Leonidas of 300, played by Gerard Butler, comes to life as one of the most celebrated heroes of all time.

The epic story of the Spartan 300's face off with the Persian armies has since joined Fight Club, Scarface and the Godfather Trilogies as a new classic for American men. Women don't mind watching either - as Gerard Butler's steely, muscular physique more than compensates for the blockbuster's revolting violence.

Besides pleasing to the ladies, Butler had to be the embodiment of one of the most legendary men of all time - and he needed a workout that would make him so. Renting the flick for a second time from blockbuster, I watched the special feature on the making of the movie - and saw clips of the grueling workout that made Gerard Butler a Spartan King and the cast of 300 larger than life. Men's Health also featured the topic, detailing what the '300-rep Spartan workout' consisted of. To see the Men's Health video explaining the workout, watch this.

In his interview with Men's Health, Butler explains, "You know that every bead of sweat falling off your head, every weight you've pumped - the history of that is all in your eyes. That was a great thing, to put on that cape and put on that helmet, and not have to think, Shit, I should have trained more. Instead, I was standing there feeling like a lion."

So when Kind Leonidas roared, "The world will know that free men stood against a tyrant, that few stood against many, and before this battle was over, even a god-king can bleed," Gerard Butler and Kind Leonidas were one and the same.

Maybe your summer workout won't be nearly as punishing as '300-rep Spartan workout,' but you're probably amped to get started - and see 300-like results - fast. Complement your workouts by taking MenScience's Thermogenic Formula for increased metabolic rate and weight loss, and the Advanced CLA Supplement Formula, which helps bolster muscle growth and decrease bodily fat for increases in lean muscle mass... You might not look like Butler, but in time, you'll could look like one of his cohorts.
