This Friday, Sam Worthington is following up his blockbuster roles in Terminator: Salvation and Avatar as Perseus in Clash of the Titans, which depicts the ultimate struggle for power as men go against kings and kings go against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world.
Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny. Like the Spartan warriors in 300, Perseus and his fellow soldiers need to be in peak physical shape if they expect to succeed.
Extreme Fitness, a leading fitness club operator in Toronto, has teamed up with Warner Bros Canada to produce the action-packed, fast-paced Clash of the Titans Workout. Lead by martial arts expert and fitness trainer George Kiriakiou, “the program combines fitness training of an elite athlete with training of a professional martial artist for a cutting-edge new workout,” says George. “The Clash of the Titans Warrior Workout” focuses on improving your mental state so that you can lose weight, increase energy, burn fat, increase core strength, and get a god or goddess-like figure.”
Those of us who want the body of a Greek warrior, but don’t live in the Toronto area, are in luck, however. A circuit-based, max-internal routine like the previously featured Spartacus Workout will get you the warrior body of your dreams. With the Spartacus Workout, you’ll be doing 1 set of each of 10 “stations” in succession for 60 seconds (doing as many reps with perfect form as possible) using a weight that’s challenging for 15 to 20 reps. Give yourself 15 seconds to move between stations. Rest for 2 minutes after you’ve completed 1 circuit of all 10 stations. Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 circuits. Expect to burn 800 or more calories while packing on lean muscle.
