Hello all. I'm new to primal and feel very overwhelmed/confused about the fitness aspect of this lifestyle.
Last April I finally decided to take control of my life and make a commitment to exercise. I've been overweight most of all my life. My most was 230lbs at 5'9, large frame. When I began exercise I was about 205 and now I'm down to about 180. I haven't been consistent completely, but I have been doing pretty well as of late.
I work out 5 days a week with 40 mins of somewhat intense cardio which includes the tredmill at a speed of 4.0, and an incline varying between 3.0 - 8.0 (just to give you an idea). Then I'll do weight training every other day. I use machines because I'm not really sure how to use much else. I do 3 sets of 15 reps of:
chest press @ 20lbs
leg press @ 120lbs
leg extension @ 50lbs
leg curl @ 50lbs
arm extension @ 40lbs
vertical traction @ 40lbs
In short: I feel like this is weak and it probably stinks.
Thinking primal, what can I change? I feel like I am not seeing much fat loss.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry if this was newb-ish. I've been browsing the site all night.
Oh by the way, I am female.
