I'm a member of Bodybuilding.com, and boy was I surprised to see this Spartacus promo on the home page.

Nick E. Tarabay (Ashur) is featured in a video of part of a training session, and there are descriptions of training exercises below.
I tried this and it really kicks yer behind! I don't usually do "circuit" training, but I think I may include this periodically in my training maybe once a month.

There's also an interview video with Nick near the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

LOL Tobias! Hehe. I gotta admit, it can be pretty brutal!! See why I chose to do it once a month? On top of my regular weight training, once is enough!

I'd finally caught up to watching the entire prequel and Season 1, and I gotta say...
Major respect for the Gladiator actors on the show with the training they have to go through, especially after seeing this recent BB.com video and sampling the training!!

I like that contestants can submit their own video of their circuit workout and can potentially win a "walk-on role" in the show!  I'd be curious to see who wins.

The video in there of the Spartacus "Gladiator Boot Camp" with the other actors and them speaking of their experiences was cool. Leslie-Ann Brandt was really into it.

This must have been a heck of a promo deal between BB.com and Starz.

Leslie-Ann must be quite into workouts considering she didn't have to do those but she wanted too.
Cool.

Yikes! I am pretty sure I'd end up in the hospital if I attempted to do even half of one of the gladiator workouts. LOL It's really neat to see how they train though-it gives me even more of an appreciation for the actors on the show.
