The Spartacus Workout uses the science of “metabolic circuits” to crank up your calorie burn for the most efficient and effective fat loss workout ever designed. You’ll alternate between lower- and upper-body resistance exercises at a fast pace to maximize your time, speed your results, and leave you so exhilarated, you’ll be counting down the minutes until your next workout. This incredible fitness routine will help you discover how to:
Estimates from the University of Southern Maine show that Spartacus-style workouts can torch as many calories as running at a 6-minute-per-mile pace.
A study at the University of Connecticut found that when you use resistance training—like in The Spartacus Workout—you lose up to 40% more fat over aerobic exercise alone! How? By protecting metabolism-revving muscle.
A study at the University of Hawaii found that a Spartacus-style circuit workout raises your heart rate 15 beats per minute higher than running at 60 to 70% of your maximum heart rate does.
PLUS: To do The Spartacus Workout, all you need is a pair of dumbbells and about 6 feet of open space. So you can do it almost anywhere! It’s simple. It’s convenient. It WORKS!
Three years ago, the producers at Starz® asked Men’s Health to create a workout worthy of the name Spartacus, the network’s hit original series. With the help of top trainer Rachel Cosgrove, C.S.C.S., we did just that. And it became the most popular workout in Men’s Health history.
Now we’ve taken The Spartacus Workout to an all-new level. With routines cocreated by Cosgrove and world-renowned performance coach David Jack—who instructs you on camera and adds his own “finisher” to the end of each routine— these never-before-seen Spartacus Workouts can get you in the best shape of your life.
In this 2-DVD set, you’ll receive two cutting-edge Spartacus Workouts. Just alternate between them 3 or 4 days a week for eye-popping, jaw-dropping results.
The Total-Body Blitz
is a 30-minute routine that features a high-intensity 10-exercise circuit. You’ll go all out for 20 seconds, rest for 40 seconds, and repeat—over and over. The result: A brutal assault on body fat. And the topper is a 5-minute “guns and buns” bonus round to finish off your arms, butt, and thighs.
The Triple-Set Scorcher
is a 29-minute workout that’ll leave you standing in a puddle of your own sweat. You’ll work for 40 seconds and rest for 20 seconds as you blast your way through 2 rounds of 3 exercises. Then you’ll rest and repeat two more times, using new movements each time. The upshot: You’ll turn your fat-burning furnace to high and scorch calories faster than ever.
