Get Insanely Hard Muscles with the 300 Rise of an Empire Workout

Hard muscles

Do you want to know how the hundreds of muscle bound bodies covering the screen in the movie 300 Rise of an Empire got so unbelievably ripped?  Well I did the research for you. Unfortunately the cast exercised for 3 hours a day under a very strict regime set forth by Gym Jones.  However, by researching the program I was able to take the core components of the regimen and create a powerful workout that anyone with one hour a day, a bit of determination and a desire to pack on serious muscle could do in their own gym.

The below is a 4 day a week program, you can do the workouts on any day you choose, but preferably with a days rest in between. Rest no more than 30 seconds between exercises. Do the below workouts for one month and you’ll notice a big difference in your physique.  Warning, this is an intense workout regimen! In addition to warming up adequately, you should properly stretch before and after each workout.

Dynamic Warm-up complex (no rest)

10 Burpees

15 Walking lunges (each leg)

25 Push-ups

40 Jumping jacks 

For the below exercises, use as much weight as you can while being able to use proper technique.  You should be using enough weight that you can barely complete your final rep.

Dynamic Warm-up complex 

15 barbell clean and press

12 pull ups

Repeat all the above exercises once
