Welcome back to my blog, thank you for visiting my Workouts Debunked 2.0 blog post AND video! You can scroll down if you’re just here for the video. 😉 I am so excited for you to read what the 300 workout is and what my results, as well as some of my clients results, were after completing the workout.
As I elaborate in the video, there are Many different 300 workouts and it was hard to pick just One to focus on. However, after looking through a few, I decided to choose one that came up pretty close to the top of my Pinterest feed when I typed in “300 workout.”
The workout in its entirety is as follows:
- 50 Pull-Ups
- 50 Deadlifts
- 50 Push-Ups
- 50 Sit-Ups
- 50 Step-Ups
- 50 BB/DB Cleans
That’s it. Three-hundred reps.
This is A LOT of reps so I did give my clients a few modifications to make it a little easier for them to complete the workout. But before we get to that I want to talk about “why the 300 workout.”
First, I want to point out that one of the reasons I wanted to “debunk” the 300 workout was because many people say that a 300 rep workout is too hard for the Average Joe, has too many reps to do in a single workout, etc., etc. There are many people saying that they could not do the 300 workout and that was just one of the reasons I decided to challenge myself with debunking this workout. To prove that you can!
Second, I wanted to show people that it takes A LOT of hard work to look like Gerard Bulter. People train for weeks, nah, Months to look like he does in this movie – it’s harder than you think!
Third, I had never done the 300 workout and I wanted to prove to myself and to my clients that we could complete it Together.
Okay, so how did I modify the workout?
- I cut the reps scheme into five parts. Instead of having everyone do 50 pull-ups in a row, I had everyone choose to either do it as prescribed on the board OR they could break it into five rounds of 10 reps per exercise. This automatically makes this workout seem A LOT easier, right? Just for reference, I did the full workout top to bottom with the full rep scheme in place.
- I limited our time to 20 minutes. This workout, if done properly, can take up to 45 minutes. So, this means that the weights we used were a little lighter than they could have been, And we were going Faster than prescribed – not a bad thing, as long as you’re concentrating on form.
After the modifications were put in place, we rocked it! This workout was HARD!
In the end our numbers were amazing! Check out the video below to see what my calorie burn was for this workout!
Oh, and if you missed out on the 1,000 calories in one workout video, click Here. The workout debunked in that video claims that you can burn 1,000 calories, and we were Much closer to 1,000 calories in the 300 workout! Take a look at the video and let me know what you think!
