Return to the Agoge – Spartan 300 Workouts

Welcome to our Return to the Agoge, Spartan ‘300’ Workouts, a series of functional-based circuits aimed at developing power, explosive movement, speed, balance, coordination and strength building.

 

Click below to skip the introduction



Check out our previous Spartan ‘300’ Workouts if you are unfamiliar with these workouts or indeed Spartan history and training!  For anyone returning, welcome back to the Agoge! The Spartan ‘300’ Workouts below are a combination of body weight, resistance training and functional training exercises.  The equipment required will depend on the actual workout listed below.  If you do not have access to a particular piece of equipment, substitute it with another exercise from another workout listed.

The Spartan Agoge. Warrior training
The aim of the Agoge system was to produce strong and capable warriors to serve within the Spartan army.

The Circuits


Outlined below are several ‘300’ style routines.  The exercises in these workouts can be performed in any order.  You can break down the exercises in any order (for example, if you have 50 squats and 50 Burpees: break the routine down into a 25 squat, 25 burpees, 25 squats, 25 burpee split, or just simply undertake 50 squats and 50 burpees) the choice is yours. 

The importance is on getting the session complete and undertaking ALL exercises with NO (or little) rest.  This workout builds strength, power, endurance and aerobic fitness, basically everything a Spartan warrior would need to hold formation whilst in a phalanx and utilising all the muscle groups to land a successful attack with their spear or sword.

Have fun with the workouts below.
