Background: “The 300”, famously used by the actors and stuntmen training with Gym Jones for the 2007 film “300,” was said to have been designed to help them achieve the “Spartan look.” In reality, the actors followed a functional fitness and diet regimen, of which this workout and others like it were one part.

The workout didn’t originate from CrossFit, but from Gym Jones @gymjonessalvation, where the actors trained, and has since been adopted as a popular benchmark workout by CrossFitters and functional fitness athletes around the globe.

Gym Jones first posted the workout online on March 6, 2007, along with more details about the training regimen the actors followed.
