I wanted to show you how other trainers and people from around the world are using my 4 Week Spartacus Workout Challenge to help them create amazing body and healthy lifestyle transformations for themselves and others.

You may have read about Jason Barrett of West Virginia in some of my other posts, but this Fitness Trainer and owner of Nerds of Fitness is definitely someone that has not only changed his body and lifestyle but has also changed the lives of many others using a modified version of my Spartacus Workout Challenge.

Jason took my Spartacus Workout for Personal Trainers, tweaked the workouts to suite his demographic and trainees, then created his 8 Week Gladiator Transform Your Body Challenge.

Each week Jason ran live classes at his gym for a dozen trainees. From June 1st 2010 through August 2nd 2010, the brave men and woman stepped up to the challenge of "Transforming" their bodies through hard work, diet, and exercise.

He also stresses that not one of these participants took any "Weight-Loss" supplements, their main supplement was DEDICATION.

The results were amazing. I’m actually blown away by the transformation that occurred in ONLY 8 WEEKS. Check out the before’s and after’s of some of the participants in Jason’s Gladiator Transformation Challenge. I know that all these participants worked hard as hell during the period because I’ve done the Spartacus Workout Challenge and it’s tough. Congratulations to all who participated.

By the way Jason now has about almost tripled the participants that have signed up for his next 8 Week Challenge starting September 2010.

  1. Two summers ago, I worked with a great gal from Hollywood, Rachel Nichols.
    Rachel did some TT workouts while filming a movie up here in Toronto.

    That's about it for me in terms of training Hollywood actors or
    actresses in person, but recently I was asked, "Imagine you're
    working with a major film star who has eight weeks to lose 30
    pounds of fat and build some muscle in preparation for the lead
    role in the latest Hollywood blockbuster. What do you do with them?"

    Here's my answer...

    I would have control over every single thing that they eat. That's
    the biggest ticket to success here. No booze, no excess sugar, and
    just giving them enough reward to stick with the program.

    If this "star" is a typical overweight, sedentary individual, we'll have
    no problem getting rid of 20 pounds of fat through nutrition.

    As for exercise, we need to be consistent, and stick with our intensity
    principles. We would do 3 hard workouts per week using strength
    training followed by interval training with the program being centered
    around basic movement patterns done with free weights.

    Everything is done in supersets in the workout to get more done in
    less time. For example, we might do a squat supersetted with a
    pressing exercise. I also like to pair free weight exercises and
    bodyweight exercises in supersets, for example, a dumbbell split
    squat paired with a decline pushup.

    We'll do 3 superset pairs, each for 1-3 sets, and stick to 8
    repetitions per set. Then we'll finish the workout with 6 hard
    intervals of 30-60 seconds (with 60-120 seconds rest between each).
    This way, we are in and out of the gym in 45 minutes.

    On "off days", we'd still get at least 30 minutes, if not 60
    minutes, of low-intensity exercise. But it wouldn't just be slow
    cardio. Instead, we'd focus on low-intensity bodyweight training.
    For example, if the actor can do a maximum of 25 bodyweight squats,
    15 pushups, and 5 chinups, we would use easier versions of those
    exercises in circuits.

    Here's a sample 6 exercise bodyweight circuit that we'd do at least
    3 times, doing 10 reps per exercise.

    Wall Squat
    Kneeling Pushup
    Beginner Inverted Bodyweight Row
    Stability Ball Leg Curl
    Mountain Climber

    After that, we might cross train with a variety of cardio exercises
    to avoid overuse injuries that occur when you repeatedly do the
    same activity and nothing else.

    So that's pretty much it. If he (or she) sticks to their nutrition,
    we're as good as gold and the actor will be ready just in time.

    PS - Turbulence Training Beats Cardio for Fat Burning Effectiveness.

    "Craig's workouts were fun and challenging - I didn't dread going to the
    gym and I wasn't overly sore after our sessions. Much like my trainer in
    LA, Craig's workouts were always different: the exercises, the supersets,
    the weights...the combination of elements always varied and, therefore,
    I never got bored or felt like I was in a workout rut. And my co-stars
    couldn't believe how great my arms looked, thanks to Craig helping me
    do my first chin-up. Thanks Craig!"
