I know that having a workout routine is an important part of the Primal Blueprint. I am a 54-year-old female, 5'6", 227 pounds, in terrible physical condition.
Four months ago when I started PB, I had extremely painful plantar fasciitis and I was in the middle phase of frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) on the right side. Now, I've lost 20 pounds, the plantar fasciitis is a distant memory, and my shoulder is well on its way to healing. I can actually move in my sleep without waking up. I also have a lot more energy, to the point that I can skip down a few steps and hurry down the sidewalk, which is an unusual feeling for me. I'd like to start a workout routine, but I have no idea where to begin. I think I'm not alone in my dilemma.
So, Mark, how about some help for people like me? I get discouraged looking at workout programs like P90X, as I know it would have to be renamed something like P450X for me to even have a hope of accomplishing it. I can't do any of the beginning moves, and I'm fearful of hurting myself. I already walk a lot, about 3 miles a day, and in the summer I do heavy work in my yard and large garden. But in the winter, I get no exercise beyond the walking. I have room in my basement to do exercises.
Where do I start? My right arm is still quite limited, but working it lightly is good. Please provide some pointers for me and others who need to start from the very bottom. If there's a good program that you can recommend, please do.
Thank you so much,
