The Spartacus Workout 2.0

With the huge success of the first Spartacus Workout training video, I decided to also make a video for the 2.0 version as well.  Now, this workout isn’t for total beginners and you’re going to want to build some base before you give this one a shot because this bad boy is intense.

With the crazy intensity of this Spartacus Workout 2.0, you’ll get way better results than your average run of the mill gym workout.

Andy Whitfield was the actor who played Spartacus on the TV show and this is one of the main workouts he used to get ripped for the show.

You don’t need to go on long boring runs to burn fat. You also don’t need to spend hours upon hours at the gym lifting heavy weights to get ripped.

The problem with just running for your cardio is you’ll burn fat away slowly. Then without the weights, your body ends up soft and weak.

If you’re just lifting heavy weights then you’ll put on some muscle but will have fat on top. The Spartacus Workout 2.0 combines the best of both of these training techniques to burn fat while gaining lean muscle.

If you’re looking for a great fat loss diet to go along with this workout I’d check out my Xtreme Fat Loss Diet review too.

Why The Spartacus Workout 2.0 Gets Results

The Spartacus Workout 2.0 uses Metabolic Resistance Training (MRT) and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) together for the best 1-2 punch you can have for getting ripped quick.

Be sure to put down the 5 lbs. baby rattle dumbbells and grab some heavier weights…this goes for men AND women.

I’d recommend doing this program 3x’s per week with a day of rest in between the workouts.

You’ll do each exercise in the Spartacus Workout 2.0 for 40 seconds and then resting for 20 seconds.  After you complete all 10 exercises be sure to immediately repeat the whole thing.

When you’ve just finished the first and second rounds you can then take a 2 minute rest before doing the whole thing over again 2 more times.


The short 20 seconds rest periods will allow you to have just enough rest time to use heavier weights but also keep your heart rate cranking.

Spartacus training isn’t something for the weak at heart but if you have a goal to get ripped then this is an awesome workout to get you there.

But like all workouts they’ll only last so long.  After about 6 weeks you’re going to want to change up your workout because you just won’t be getting the same results you used to. Your body will quickly adapt to the Spartacus training workout routine.

This is when you can try one of the other Spartacus Workouts on my site such as the Spartan Abs Workout. You could also increase the weight you’re using while increasing the work time and decreasing your rest times. Maybe even mix up the order of the exercises.

And Now Onto The Spartacus Workout 2.0!

I want to finish this off with my thoughts go out to the family of Andy Whitfield. He played Spartacus in the TV show and unfortunately passed away from lymphoma in 2011.

These Spartacus workouts are so effective I’ve been implementing these training techniques into my own and clients’ workouts since. These workouts just work like gangbusters for getting people lean and ripped fast.

The caveat is these workouts are more intense than the average run-of-the-mill workouts. The payoff is you’ll get ripped quicker.

So if you’re not a total wuss then these workouts are for you. Combine it with a fat-burning nutrition system then you’re going to be leaner and more ripped than you thought possible.
