*** ***
This is all done without rest, although you should rest when needed but push yourself. As you can see your final rep count is 300, hence the 300 workout. The final time for this should be in the 15-20 minute range, but will vary on the users abilities. You will need to set up 10 stations, each station lasting 60 seconds – performing as many reps as possible. After 60 seconds allow for 15 seconds to move between each station. Once completed all 10 stations, rest for 2 minutes (120 seconds) – this is considered to be one full circuit. Repeat twice more, including the 2 minutes rest in between, for a total of 3 full circuits. Total time for the Spartacus Workout is 31.5 minutes.
The Comparison: The 300 vs Spartacus

When thinking about the amount of time for each workout the 300 Workout ranges from 15 to 20 minutes depending on your athletic ability and the Spartacus Workout hits the 31.5 minute mark.The 300 Workout allows for little to no rest and forces you to change and adapt to different targeted muscle groups. Although, the Spartacus Workout allows for more rest between sets, compared to the 300 workout, and recovery after each circuit, you are still training under anaerobic (low oxygen or no oxygen) situations which help to increase cardiovascular strength and VO2 max. This is all good for the body’s ability to deal with training in intense conditions. Therefore, both the 300 Workout and the Spartacus workout help to in increasing cardiovascular health, muscle endurance, VO2 max (ability to increase oxygen intake), and strength. Both workouts are great to incorporate into your routine. I see them both as a testing point for your abilities. Use them as a way to rank your progress and compare your times to others in your same age group or athleticism.
