My husband was the one who introduced me to the Spartacus workout. He found out about it through an article in Men’s Health magazine, downloaded the app, and if he’s ever uninspired to come up with his own routine he’ll default to this one.
Obviously this workout was designed for the man who aspires to look like a Spartan warrior but from what I’ve read Spartan women were not to be messed with either. It is a full body workout and at the end of the second round you’ll be wishing you had an extra minute to rest. I took the challenge one day and with modifications, powered through it.
For the first several months I used 10lb weights for a few of the stations, 5lbs for the side lunges, pushup rows and push press, no weight for the T-pushup. This week after about 4 months away from this workout, I performed almost every station with 10lb weights. Still no weights on the T-push up, I took that as my relief station.
It was tough but so satisfying to finish.
On my next go round with Spartacus I will add weights to the T-pushups, starting off with 5lbs. As I get stronger my goal is 10lbs all the way.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from training with Soldierfit it’s that you’ll never know your full potential if you don’t push yourself. Add more weight, add more reps, if it gets tough take a break, modify if you have to, but keep going!
