The 300 Workout
Has anybody gave this workout a try? It's a lot like crossfit, and definitly looks like an ass-kicker. I'm probably going to give it a try in a few days, and I'll post back my time.
If you've done it, how was your time?
Here's how it goes (continuous clock starting at the first exercise):
50 deadlifts @ 135lbs
50 box jumps
50 "Floor wipers"
50 Kettleball clean + press (can use a 35lb DB)
Comes out to be 300 reps, but is more notably known because of the movie.

when I read up on it, this wasn't the workout, but moreso the "test". The idea was to see how short of a timespan they could do this in. I think the best time was around 17 minutes. I could be remembering wrong tho

It's a little late in the day for me to try this workout today (gym is getting busy), but I have time tommarow to hit it in the morning. As you can see, you kind of need a lot of space to be able to complete this effeciently. Jumping from exercise to exercise could be very difficult in a busy gym!
I'll post back tommarow with my results. Shooting to hit under 17 minutes, but I know that will be most likely incredibly tough. Lets see if the NavySeal crossfit workouts have paid off!

I would like to try this workout sometime next Summer. Sounds like it would be a great workout for cardiovascular health and to help with overall fitness.

Got lazy after my run... currently either pushing my attempt off until tommarow or I might make it in tonight if I feel like I can give it a solid go.

Once I get back into lifting hopefully in a month, I'm going to do a FB workout for a few months, then work on a BB split, then maybe upper/lower, and then hopefully towards the end of the Summer, I can try this workout for about a month or so.
Is this something that can be done 3 times a week?

Workouts like these (check out Crossfit.com and the NavySeal Crossfit site too), base their workouts on variety. "Routine is the enemy" - A common quote regarding Crossfit. So what I'm getting at is that you shouldn't do this particular workout more than once a month, or something of that like.
If you choose to implement workouts such as these into your program, check out those sites and use theirs (you can always substitute exercises... you'll see what I mean)... you won't be dissapointed!
Do take note however, that Crossfit workouts are all about intensity. A good 85 percent of the workouts are timed events, such as "complete 5 rounds of these exercises as fast as possible". You get taxed pretty heavily, depending on how much you put into it. Again, you'll see what I mean! It's real fun stuff, and VERY addicting, but do make sure to take plenty of rest (Crossfit.com workouts are 3 days on, 1 off, and usually 1 of those workouts is a lighter one).
