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. Seems like things are heating up here with ebooks, recipes, contests and exercises. It’s all good stuff for sure. For me I think I may have to submit a video and display what the barbarian workout is all about!

  2. The bar is definitely being stepped up these days!

  3. Great vid! Perfect and easy for the beginner. I see some mods here that could be done for yoga like poses.

  4. Those one’s on the rings (I think they’re called “Muscle Ups”). They look brutally difficult, but a fun challenge.

  5. Good stuff, Peter. Bonus points for that very nice t-shirt…but take them all back and a few more for the footwear. The eventual winner has to be barefoot, or at least in VFFs, after all, what would Grok do? ;-)

  8. Grok may not have had music to hunt by but music does make moving easier. I am always looking for new music to listen to while lifting heavy things and would love to know what music is used in this vid.

    • Music by Mocean Worker. Available on Itunes
