The Spartan 300 Workout

So, as some of you may know I am running the Spartan Race Time Trials at Fenway Park this November. I’m super pumped.

As part of the “Spartan Community” I get WOD’s in my inbox every single day – some are endurance runs, some are HIIT, some are just downright brutal. But one of the first one’s  I received was called The Spartan 300.


So today, as a company workout group, we decided to take on the 300. And we completed it. I was the only girl that stuck it through this work out. It was hard. I didn’t stop. No one made any excuses for me. We did it.

This is what we did:


Partner Drill Warm Up: Plank and 100 Yard Sprint. Four times through. Partner Stretch. Sampson to Surfer.

The 300

  • 400 Meter Run
  • 10 Jumping Jacks
  • 10 Push Ups
  • 10 Para Troopers
  • 10 Crunches
  • 10yrd Bear Crawl
  • 10 Jumping Squats
  • 10 Stationary Crab Twists (5 per side)
  • 10 Burpees
  • 10 Bicycles
  • 10 Heisman’s

Rinse, Lather, Repeat and finish with a 400 meter run.


This means, after three times through we did 300 reps and ran a mile. Spartan Race gave an estimated time for the workout at 20 – 40 minutes. 

As a team, we completed it in 25:00.

I’ve never been happier to have sweat dripping in my eyes, yelling out rep counts, and having red stains all over my hands and knees (from doing pushups/burpees/crabtwists on a track). 

And we got to yell out “THIS IS SOUTH BOSTON” a couple times when we ran around the track… and that’s just an epic way to start your day, don’t you think?
