Wedding Preparation : Spartacus Workout
Updated on 11th October, 2010.
I’ve added a download-able PDF guide to the Spartacus Workout, courtesy of Men’s Health. And just so you know, the Spartacus Workout isn’t just for guys out there! Check out this lady who completes the workout way better than I do – I’m very, very impressed!

At the moment, it seems as though this blog should be called Wedding and Travel Blog instead. My blog posts at the moment seemed to be split between my wedding preparation and my travel adventures.
Anyway, in my long term, 1-year plan to get into good shape for my wedding next year, I’ve adopted the Spartacus Workout recently. Fresh from ending my 8-sessions IPPT Prep Training stint, I’ve decided keeping still is not the way to go.

If a challenge was what I wanted, I definitely got what I was looking for! Let’s hope the links posted below don’t break. As always, Google is your best friend!

Why Spartacus Workout? Firstly, it requires little to no special equipment. All I needed was a 5-kg Kettler dumb-bell. However, I did use a little creativity to get past the use of a hexagon dumb-bell.
Billed as a high-intensity circuit, it certainly lives up to its name! It sure is one tough workout. A set takes 12 minutes and 15 seconds to complete. At my current condition, I could complete 2 out of the 3 recommended set of exercises, 2 days a week. Needless to say, at the end of the second set, my (unfit) body is already totally drained and I’m sweating buckets comparable to a 2.4km run.
Let’s hope I can persevere and continue with my plan – keep fit and live well!
