    Has anyone tried this yet? Came out of Mens Health magazine Jan edition. I tried this routine this week it was posted on the wall in the gym here at work and it beat the shit out of me. I didn't even get half way through it. But today I managed to get through two sets almost puking near the end. On some stations i'm not even doing the entire 60sec and i'm not taking the 15sec rest between sets its more like 45-60sec. Never have I felt such pain in my lower body than with this routine hammies and quads were a burnin.

    agreed, and for your average person it can be nice to have it all laid out for you, but in the end it ends up as another fad routine. If the movements in any way translate to your personal goals than great, but I'd wager the majority of people who get swept up in the "workout of the month" routine never get the results they want.


    Anybody who has spent some time getting to know their body and has a decent grasp of how to push themselves could just as easily make up a barbell complex or superset routine to get nearly the same effect.


    oh and no, I never went through the whole 300 routine full out.
