Brutal Interval Workouts with Fat Shredding Results


Shred it Like Spartacus

From Men's Health: my.menshealth.com


I'm a huge fan of interval workouts. I've designed dozens myself, borrowed from places like
GymJones, any number of Crossfit WOD's and even, dare I say it, Men's Health.

I tend to take a look at everyone's workout ideas and adjust them to an appropriate level and using equipment that I have or prefer. One of my favorite authors of interval workouts is Istvan Javorek. He has been coaching athletes for decades and has some excellent dumbbell and barbell workout routines. But like I said, I like to mix things up, which is why I was intrigued by the Spartacus workout from Men's Health.

I like this workout for several reasons: Simple equipment (dumbbells,) emulates lifting in real life situations, and is seriously challenging.















The Spartacus includes exercises like the "Dumbbell Chop" shown above and the "Rotational Dumbbell Straight-Leg Deadlift" below:

There are also bodyweight exercises included, which are vital for developing great body awareness and what academics call "proprioception," (spatial awareness.)
