If Blood and Sand or Vengance had you ready to leap from your chair and enter the battle to bring down Rome, that’s nothing compared to how thrilling the final installment of the Spartacus series will be. Spartacus: War of the Damned, premieres January 25 at 9pm on Starz, and follows the rebellion of a slave army—gladiators hell-bent on destroying the Roman Empire that wants them in chains. With practically no filter, this show hangs on violence, betrayal, steamy sex, and the undying fight for freedom (all with awesome digital effects, of course) that’ll keep you enthralled until the final war.
In these four behind the scenes videos, the stars of Spartacus: War of the Damned show us how they stay ripped. From surfing to deadlifts, here’s the trick to achieving perfectly sculpted abs, arms and shoulders it takes to swing a sword. Check out the January 2013 issue of Men’s Fitness magazine for our complete warrior workout to get the lean, athletic gladiator look these guys have. Bonus? You can do it anywhere.
