Men’s Health – The Spartacus Workout PDF and Videos
YOUR WORKOUT PLAN
To create the Spartacus Workout, we chose 10 exercises that collectively work every part of your body. Then we made each exercise a 60-second station so you can challenge your heart and lungs as well as your muscles. The final product is a high-intensity circuit designed to torch fat, define your chest, abs, and arms, and send your fitness level soaring. (Take it to the next level: Get METASHRED EXTREME, the new total-body workout program from Men’s Health that shreds fat and builds muscle.)
Directions: Do this circuit 3 days a week. Perform 1 set of each exercise (or “station”) in succession. Each station lasts 60 seconds. Do as many reps as you can (with perfect form) in that time, and then move on to the next station. Give yourself 15 seconds to move between stations, and rest for 2 minutes after you’ve completed 1 circuit of all 10 exercises. Then repeat twice. If you can’t go the entire minute, rest a few seconds and then resume until your time at that station is up. Use a weight that’s challenging for 15 to 20 reps.
