If you're looking to get in shape and fast people may tell you that there is no way to do it fast and easy, getting in shape and looking good takes time; well they have never participated in the Spartacus workout! Although it's definitely no easy feat by any means, stick to it for a while and you'll definitely see some pretty nice results come on pretty fast. That's because this grueling high intensity circuit routine can get you burning as much as 731 calories in just 41 minutes! Whether you're new to working out, or you're a veteran the Spartacus workout will for surely give you a run for your money. I honestly believe that if you can complete the circuit exactly as instructed - 3 sets, 60 sec stations for each exercise, only 15 sec rest between exercises, and pumping out as many reps as you can - than you're in incredible shape!

I do this workout every now and then and sometimes I find myself barely making it through the third and final sweat... By then you'll be pouring sweat and ready to pass out. Don't get me wrong though you don't have to kill yourself for the Spartacus workout to be enjoyable, you can adjust each station time so it's less, you don't have to do all 3 sets, etc. I sometimes drop each station time from 60 seconds to 40-50 seconds and that makes all the difference. Although I see nothing wrong with sticking strictly to the Spartacus workout for a few weeks (3-6) it's always good to switch it up so that your body will keep progressing. So what are you waiting for, make an undefeated champion gladiator out of yourself, or at least your physique!
