  • Primal Log

    I've been needing a place to log things for some time, and since I'm a Primal/Paleo guy, this seemed like a great place to start.

    I've been following Mark since 2004 when a co-worker turned me on to his website and have had some great conversations with him over email and he still personally responds to things I send to him (sorry Mark, I'll use the forums more now!). My mother, a diabetic educator and Type I diabetic teaches the Primal and Paleo principles to all of her patients and credit Mark's book The Primal Blueprint as one of the inspirations that led her to a level of health and fitness that is unheard of for most women over 50.

    I tend to do CrossFit and the Tactical Athlete workouts, but I do them all with kettlebells (I have a full set of professional steel kettlebells). I hope in the future to start a gym that focuses on training kids and athletes primal type movements for general fitness.

    I own an Atlatl from Atlatl Bob who was featured during a PrimalCon, and can tell you both the atlatl and Bob are awesome. I'm very much into turning the world into my playground to the delight of my son.

    Yesterday:

    15 min AMRAP of:
    10 Kettlebell Swings 2pd
    10 Squat Jumps
    10 Dips

    8 rounds

    Hey my friend, you might want to transfer this to the 'Journals' section of the site. Looks great though.

      I'll ask to have that done (moderators, help!). As you can see, I was one of the original joiners of the forum, but it has expanded well beyond what I saw in 2009.

          There's a great site called Fitocracy.com, where you can log workouts and get points, you should join it and be my friend there, I'll give you props.

          Oh I see.

            I've tried Fitocracy, but it misses a lot of the movements I end up doing. They tend to be slow to add kettlebell things as well.

            Today:

            5 RFTO:
            10 2x2pd KB Deadlifts
            10 Burpees

                Yea they don't have everything, like Bottom Up Squats, but you record that in your notes and take the hit on the points. The points and awards keep me motivated, plus the fist-bumps and props, of course.

                But yea, keep this thread alive, it's very vibrant and interesting.

                            Well I had surgery that has prevented me from working out as I recover.

                            Today, started back with some GTG.

                            Every hour, on the hour for 8 hours:

                            5 pull-ups
                            20 push-ups
