    Is it ok to do something like Power 90 a couple of times through to build up the endurance to do more Primal type workouts?

      I really like P90X and Tony Horton's One on One series too. I've come to enjoy working out with Tony, as cheesey as that may sound.


      While P90X may not completely comply with the PB fitness, I think there are several similarities. I figure as long as you aren't burning yourself out and overtraining then you are good to go.

        As a back-to-beginner-level weight lifter, I'm enjoying ChaLEAN Extreme. Of course it is not exactly Primal, but it isn't completely incompatible. It is heavy on weights, light on cardio, and only takes ~40 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

          I am getting ready to do 10 minute trainer and have done p90. But I am curious if anyone is adjusting the videos based on primal lifestyle.

            I have three of the ones mentioned so far: p90, p90x and chalean extreme. I like them all and though I'm half way through p90x, I'm actually dialing things back and going to pick and choose between all three in the spirit of making this transition to Primal living.

              I think P90X is totally primal. But I also would throw in that I don't do JUST P90X but modify. I do at least 2 full body workouts from P90X or P90X Plus and then I'll do Ab Ripper X with a pushup program or throw in a kettlebell routine. Tony's workouts on P90X LOOK to be 50-60 minutes long (except for the Yoga....), but if you strip out the rest/chatter, they are much closer to 35 minutes or even less. From that perspective I think P90X is a great piece to incorporate into your plans.

                The P90X workouts are 35-40 minutes long. I do them on a PS3 and fast forward past all the chatter. I follow the program to the T and add in sprints and 2 long runs a week. Love it!
