I received numerous emails asking me to share, create or find a workout that doesn’t require the use of weights. Well here it is,  “The Kick Ass Bodyweight Workout”.
This workout will raise your heart rate and make you sweat.
It focuses on your core and burns fat, so make sure you’re in good condition to do this.  Monitoring your heart rate is important because if it’s too high you could pass out or have a heart attack.  If it’s too low you’re not burning calories.

The Kick Ass Bodyweight Work is made up of eight exercises.
Some of the exercises you have seen before in the Spartacus workout.
They are just too good not to add to the routine.

Run for better Abs

Something I always say if you want your six pack or eight pack,  you need some carido in your workout.  Men’s health has a great article that gives you some tips on how to get the most out of your run. Here are a few key points that I found beneficial.

Sprinting:
Sprinting raises your resting metabolism, which means you burn extra calories after your workout as well as during your run.

Interval Running:
Run sporadic intervals, with one thing in mind: As soon as you hit a mark, have a new one in sight. “This keeps your body active and brain fog in check.” This is also a great way to keep yourself from getting bored.

Train harder:

Is there a portion of your workout that you’re walking when you could be running?
Think about it. Raising your intensity may be more important for burning off belly fat than how often you exercise or for how long.

Men’s Health Spartacus Workout Results

60 Days Sound Bite, Health, Reviews, Spartacus No Comments »

I have done the Spartacus Workout roughly twenty four times from 1/16/10 till now. The workout is tough, it gets my heart pumping, muscles burning and my mind saying “Just one more set, keep swinging, breath!” Then stinging sweat saturated drips into my eyes. Midway through the second circuit I take off my shirt because it’s soaked. The cool down actually helps me make it through the routine. This workout still holds the mantel of the hardest workout I have ever done. Depending on how much rest I get ,I can push more weight. Trying to do this routine after a 30 minute warm up run will leave you feeling sick. Yes Spartacus lives up to its’ roman heritage and so do the results.

Taking pictures of before and after is a great way to boost your confidence. It also helps to drive you to maintain focus and stay driven. We are all visual creatures and seeing is believing. Below are my latest gains while working out with Spartacus and eating right. I have to get some better lighting, these images are loosing some definition that really shows the difference in the comparison.
