Hey Mark and Forum
My name is Mark Westman, I'm a Crossfit Level 1 cert (which does not mean SQUAT, really), who uses, strictly sandbags and bodyweight for exercising as of late. I'm 47, 6'2, 240lbs, and stumbled upon this whole "Primal" thing...
Just a quick background. My wife recently joined the Army. She was a Nationally ranked figure competitor, (you can see her under "founder" link at the Crossfitmyrtle beach dot com address if you want to look) and well, life has strange twists and turns.
I'm in Titusville with family, waiting for her to finish BCT and OCS (yep, I'll have to salute her now), and as we sold the CrossFit box, and I'm UNEMPLOYED (imagine that!), I took to the sandbags (I use Ultimate Sandbags since I use them a lot, and a vietnam era Alice pack). and am TRYING to get some good training in...tho, I miss training with, well, people. My mom's horse just watches me in disgust as I do ring pull ups and burpees...
NEWAYZ, I was looking for some new sandbag routines, and LO, I found PRIMAL, and Mark's Daily apple. HOW COOL!
SO of course, after sitting here for the past, oh, 3 hours, reading through all the forums, blogs, tips, tags and content... I have made up my mind as soon as I get some $$ I'll get the book!
I'm have a bitch of a time, being 48, getting the effin' spare tire off my middle. Mostly because I still crave carbs. I'm currently (cheating) on Precision nutrition's "Get Shredded diet", and I've been cheating...so the weight is coming off slow. I've tried "Paleo", but I still had the cravings.
SO I'm interested to see what comes of the info in the Primal Blueprint! I promise I'll get it soon! I'm so stoked I found this Program/group!
Sorry for the rant...but...well...there ya go.
