300 is the ultimate bro movie, so it’s only fitting that its most iconic fight scene served as inspiration for a bunch of gym bros who wanted to work out in an unconventional way.

(Sorry, this embed was not found.)

To set themselves apart from the other exercisers at their gym, these bros reenacted 300‘s fight scene, stunt for stunt, with one particularly “swole” bro doing all of Leonidas’ ass-kicking. The grainy footage of their reenactment isn’t as crisp and clear as the original movie is, but thanks to the indescribable appeal of watching bro-vs.-bro combat, it’s every bit as exciting.

Whatever your workout regimen is, this video will definitely motivate you to squeeze out a few more reps.
