The 2012 Spartacus Workout is from Men's Health.

Disclaimer: You might puke your brains out the first time you try it.

Okay, so if you're looking to lean out, gain muscle, or get as fit as a Spartan, this is an awesome circuit training workout for just that. It's pretty intense so be warned!

All you need is a pair of dumbbells, making it a great home workout. I'd recommend picking a weight that you can do at least 15 reps of Shoulder Presses with. So if that's 25lbs, then stick with a pair of 25lb dumbbells for now...

There are 10 exercises total. You'll be doing 40 seconds of high intensity and 20 seconds rest for each exercise. After each round you get 2 minutes of rest. It's up to you how many rounds you want to do. 3-4 rounds, 3 times a week is most effective.

A. Ran out of time, but the next update will have this.

Dumbbells? Spartans didn't have them Can you make an app like this but all you need is your body and the space to work out?

Awesome free app The sound volume has a mind of its own! But the workouts are tough and help with both fat burning and muscle definition. I recommend using it three times a week
