The Best of Mark’s Daily Apple: April 2008

Dedicated readers of MDA had a very busy April. They got Primal by tearing into some protein (but not legumes or gluten). They practiced the art of compromise and had a few drinks (and dessert!) They made their own butter, spiced up their meals with wasabi and ginger, considered what to do with artificial sweeteners, planted their own backyard vegetable gardens, joined local CSAs and still had time for a few 15 minute workouts! Goodness. Let’s just hope that May can as productive and fruitful. Thanks to everyone for stopping by!

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I would love to see more details on Mark’s weight room regimen. We got the post on what muscle groups he works on what days, but what does he actually do? Low reps-high weight? Low weight-high reps! Something along the lines of Devany’s hierarchal sets? I know different people respond to different methods, but I’d be willing to try anything that would give me a body anywhere approaching Mark’s physique! :-)

    P.S. Tell me he does Horton’s stuff and I’ll dust out the P90X discs in a heartbeat! :-)
