I've received a few comments about posting an alternative 300 workout for women.

Here is one I've created specifically for women called "Queen Gorgo's Challenge".  Gorgo was the Queen of Sparta at the time of the Battle of Thermopylae.



10 minute Indoor Row

10 Push-Ups

10 Air Squats

10 Sit-Ups

5 Pull-Ups 


30 Jump Pull-Ups

60 Sit-Ups

30 Box Jumps (18-20 inch box)

60 Shoulder Presses (10kg Barbell)

30 Walking Lunges (using 10kg plate, with arms fully extended overhead) 

30 Dips

30 Floor Wipers (with 10kg plate overhead)

30 Burpees (with 1 Push-Up between each rep)


i.e. 300 Reps in total.


100 Air Squats (as quickly as possible) 

* Complete these 300 reps as quickly as possible, completing each exercise before moving onto the next.  

Please post workout time to comments.
