Plank Barrel Turn Workout
Workout Level: Moderate

This simple workout features only 3 exercise to make an excellent superset to maximise your workout time, each circuit is short and effective.

Isometric exercises are excellent at engaging the core and stabilising muscles requiring constant firing to maintain form and correct body alignment. This workout is called a plank barrel turn as you will be moving straight from one plank exercise to the next WITHOUT rest. This turns these simple plank exercises into a quad super-set. 

Perform the workout at a circuit for 2 to 3 rounds, remember there is no rest between each exercise, simply move to that plank position.

The 300 Workout
Workout Level: Easy

You would have done well not to have heard of the infamous 300 workout, many websites have submitted their claims to the workout and many have even charged for the privilege.

Every fitness site on the web has a take on the 300 workout, the so called workout that the actors from the movie 300 undertook to get into shape and get that 300 physique. It would be nice to think that these actors undertook the workout 'X' times per week and this was the only workout they used to achieve their classic physique. However, this is unlikely due to the size of the workout, the workout is hard and it would be ineffective and near impossible to perform this on a regular basis. It's called the 300 workout as that is the total amount of reps that are performed during the entire workout. All these exercise and reps are performed consecutively with little or no rest, a massive super-set if you like or a large circuit with no rest, either way it sounds tough.
