It's been 5 months since the movie 300 came out, and the legend of the "300 reps" workout and the hardcore training at Gym Jones took the fitness world by storm. Over a million people came by this site just to read my commentary on the now legendary "300 Reps" workout. It opened people's eyes to a new level of intensity in fat loss workouts, and a new level of functional movement.
So what did you do?
There were a lot of different routs you could go. Some people devoured the Gym Jones website and followed the same day by day workouts that the actors followed exactly. Smart.
Some people just did that one workout, aka "300 reps", over and over again. Not as smart.
Some people moved on from there to Enter the Kettlebell. Some to CrossFit. Some started reading the Performance Menu or Get Up!. Or Turbulence Training. Some people got my book, The Stubborn Seven Pounds. Some people got Power to the People. Some people went to T-Nation.
No matter which route you went workout wise, you undoubtedly made quantum leaps in your strength and conditioning. The question is, did you pair that with a smart enough nutrition plan to get the body you wanted also?
Here we are, a week before 300 drops on DVD. Tell me what you've done with your strength and conditioning in the last 5 months. How did the 300 actor's training alter your fitness? What changed? Did you get what you wanted? Did it leave a lasting impression? Does the movie still get you pumped? Post your story to comments.
