i've done the routine ~8-9 times in the past, everytime I do it for time, trying to best each session...i wouldn't do it back to back though, it's not the greatest muscle tearing workout since most of the exercises you can do in 1-2 giant sets but I'd still allow at least a day of rest between sessions
it is called the "300" not because this was the exclusive exercise they used in the "300" movie but rather because it is "300" total reps, it's just a form of HIT & one can create their own HIT program once they understand the foundation of HIT/Tabata/Max-OT/DC trainingEat Clean Snatch & Jerk

300 is NOT a workout. I repeat. NOT A WORKOUT.
It is a fitness Test. The guys from the movie didnt do this as a workout.
It was just sort of as a right of passage for those who went through the intense training for the movie. For bragging rights. Thats it.
The point of it is to time yourself and try to do it as fast as you can and to do better the next time.
Not as a workout plan.
The general goal is to complete it in under 20 mins.
In fact, there was only one actor who actually completed it in under 20mins.
Andrew Pleavin, the bald guy who lead the arcadians to battle, was the only actore to complete it in good time. Even after 12 weeks of sloid training Gerard Butler, Leonidas, could not accomplish this goal.
It is not for the faint of heart. Not for the overweight.
If you feel compelled to do it, then maximize it to once a month or less. Once every 2 months would be a good timeframe.
Its just a test.
PS: If you complete it and don't want to throw up, or havent already, you werent pushing yourself hard enough.If you haven't tried a Million things, you haven't tried everything!

Overtraining: An excuse for failure and/or an excuse to avoid working harder.

Honestly, I can't see this as an effective workout. Far too many reps. You might burn some calories but that's all you'll get out of it. Plus if you can do 25 pullups in a single set, then you'd have no reason to use this workout, you could find a far more effective one.
If you're really looking for a good high rep, high intensity fat burning workout, check out the 4 minute HIIT workout. Much more effective in my opinion.

i think that who has tried the workout would know that it's good for getting in fit . all of you just comment whithout trying it , well it's not the best workout ofcourse . So what i'm doing is :
1 day -300 training, second day - jumping whith a rope, third day -rest and than this again , but sometimes i make two days rest if needed
my best score for now :
1. allmost 22- 25 pull ups
2. deadlift whith 25 kg 50reps
3. 46 pushups
4. 50 jumpings on a box
5. 32 floor wipers (original to left and right - 1 rep)
6. clean & press with 11 kg for now 50 reps ( single arm but switching them between 1 rep)
7. 14 pull ups
The problem of the program is that the clean and press is forcing your biceps and you don't have power for the pull ups then
so i'm not doing it very intensive and i walk 5 -15 seconds between clean & press and pull ups and between jumpings and floor wipers
It seems that my body is transforming so it's working . i think that you lose weght for shore
and gain little bit more muscle lay / relief ( i dont know how its called on english ) . My abbs are stronger and better looking ofcourse . too bad that the triceps is not much trained

Doesn't matter the workout... but you should give any major muscle group 48-72hrs rest, core can be an exception.
If you feel the DOMS big time,you're doing it too oftenWhen I'm fat my pants don't fit, When I lose weight my pants don't fit.. maybe I should stop wearing pants?
