  • Question about Primal Blueprint Fitness

    Hi. Maybe my understanding on English is too weak for this. Okay, some quotes:
    "For each LHT workout complete two cycles,
    back-to-back, of each of the five movement
    sets."
    and later
    "Rest During Sets – Try to knock out all your goal reps in one go each cycle. If you can’t get there in a single shot take a short break and then add to your total. Take as few breaks as needed to get you to your goal number. Never take more than about three minutes for any single set, and if you’re only adding a few seconds or a single rep to your cumulative total after a short break then you’ve reached the end of that set. Move on to the next set in the cycle once you’ve either reached your goal number or have reached the max reps you are able to complete within a reasonable amount of time."
    I don't understand this. If I can do 35 inclined pushups (needed 50), should I rather stop with 35 and go to the next exercise, or wait a minute and do 15 more? I want to follow Mark's plan without modifications
    I will be normal. I will be NORMAL again
    Yeah!

    Wait a minute or so and do the additional 15. I still have to take a break in my pullups and pushups, but I'm trying to push further each time before taking a break

      I have a similar question. anywhere I can get what a BEGINNERS PB workout should look like? I'm looking to get direct and straight to the point info.

      How many sets and reps of each exercise
      rest time between sets and exercises etc.

      I did my first PB workout last wknd including push ups, planks, squats, pull ups and hand stand pushups but still not sure I did the right amount set and rep wise.

        I think you should do assesment by doing Pushups, Pullups, Full Squats, Dive Bombers and Forearm/Feet Plank
        Then you look at the charts and you choose your exercise
        Now personally, if I will do too little pushups to advance, I will alternate things: on one workout I will do 50 in sets (eg. 16+17+16), on other day I will just do how much I can without falling to the ground (no more than 50) and continue with the next exercise. My opinion is that if you want just to get stronger you can pause as much if you want, but to gain muscle mass quicker it would not be good
        I will be normal. I will be NORMAL again
        Yeah!

          I was wondering about this too. Is the goal to do 50 reps without rest before you can move on to the next stage of difficulty for that exercise?

            If I understand it correctly you would need to be able to do 50 reps twice (once in each cycle). And it should be easy for you to do before you move on to the next stage.

              I want to know about the blueprint fitness, how can we perform it,
              and how it is helpful in fitness.

                There is a PBF ebook. It details everything.

                I try to do all of my reps in one shot without resting. So, I'm level 2 of push ups. I need to to do 50 in each set. Yesterday I did 40 in the first set and 30 the second time through. I just go until I can't get myself back off the ground.
