  • Need major help, time to switch to a complete primal life!

    So, I've recently bought the Primal Blueprint, brilliant to say the least. My diet is 100% now, not 80 but 100. The only thing is I'm working out 2 hours a day 5 days a week lifting heavy weights (getting great results but according to the book this will age me faster and is not healthy). I am looking for a workout regimen, be it body weight or weights, that will fit the 10-30 minute limit of working out. I need one that will get me jacked and super cut, but in an optimally healthy manner. Please post any workout routines that fit the Primal Blueprint way of life!

    Thanks,

    Diet dictates leanness more than exercise.

    I use Rippetoe's programs as a base.

    Sprints are good.

      Where can I find Rippetoe's program?

        I highly recommend his first book, which he's most known for:

        Amazon.com: Starting Strength (2nd edition) (9780976805427): Mark Rippetoe, Lon Kilgore: Books

        if you get through that, he has a second one that will take you the rest of the way through your life.

        I'm sure you can find his basic programs online, however, the book is worth it for the pictures, diagrams, and cues.

        If that's not your style, I'm sure others will have other recommendations, it's a passionate topic around here...

          Will this routine get me jacked just as if I was lifting my usual 20 sets isolating each muscle 5 days a week?

            It should allow you to add significantly more muscle than your old routine, and if your diet is dialed in, you should be pretty jacked...

                  What have your results been from it? I saw that Rippetoe also says to eat a shit load of calories and loads of carbs, I'm wondering if I'll be as successful sticking with my eat when hungry and just eat veggies meat and poultry

                    You'll eat more on it, keep it good, clean primal(may need carbs) and you'll add muscle rather than fat.

                    I started on Rip's stuff before primal, and gained a ton of muscle. Added in primal, dropped the fat, added more muscle.

                      I eat a shit ton of veggies, probably around 70 carbs a day from them, is this ok? I haven't been eating fruits now for 2 weeks and have been dropping fat like crazy!
