          I am a woman, in my 50's and relatively new to the primal lifestyle in eating and exercising. I used to be a victim of Chronic Cardio (all work, no real results) but the Primal Blueprint has changed how I workout for the better. Here's my schedule:
          Sunday-Flexability: I do Vinyasa yoga in the morning, and a leisurely 30 minute walk in the afternoon. Monday-Strength: I do an all body Kettlebell routine (I work on covering the "5 pillars" of kettlebell training) Swings, Snatches, Military Presses, Rows, Squats, Lunges, TGU's, usually 15 to 30 minutes (wrings me out like a wet noodle!), rest and relax the rest of the day. Tuesday-Cardio: A nice 30 minute walk outdoors or gentle rebounding on a mini trampoline. Wednesday-Rest. Thursday-Strength: a simple Body weight routine of crunches, push ups, lunges, and bodyrows (I can't do pullups yet!) 3x20 reps each exercise. Friday-Flexability: All over pilates or yoga. Saturday-Cardio: A long walk outdoors in nature or 2x30 minute sessions of rebounding while catching up on my DVR'd shows.

            What is your favorite workout - or one that is non-traditional perhaps? Just shopping for ideas, so I'm looking forward to what anyone has to add.
            My basic fitness program involves jogging/sprinting (did 1.5 miles today alternating), Olympic Taekwondo (hardcore workouts) 1-2x/week, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 2-3x/week, bodyweight workouts (mixed in or substituted when I feel like it).

            I'm trying to work in a day of heavy lifting as well.

              Sledgehammer (shovelglove workout + pushups+ squats) and gardening.
              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                Today I plan to do my first serious workout for ~ 6 months. I swam a couple of laps this morning and tonight I am going to do a bodyweight routine (which I'm still putting together) involving:

                BW squats and myabe single leg squats
                Pull ups
                Tricep Push ups
                Push ups with feet raised
                Maybe chin ups
                and if I can find somewhere - Dips.

                That workout is rather limited but I have a specific aim in mind rather than just general fitness.

                    2 hrs of intense singles racquetball. Tonight I'll probably go for a nice 3 mile walk down by the river.
                    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                          5.97 miles. Tried, tried, tried to keep my HR about 70% of my MHR but it kept edging up to 80%. I had to walk a bit just to keep it lower than 80%. The gale force winds around Las Vegas did not help my cause. :-/

                          But the run felt great- so much energy during and all day afterward.

                              I just started kettlebells and I'm loving them!
                              Other than doing 10-20 min. kettlebell routines about 4x/week, I'm walking 20-30 min/day (sometimes I'll do a second evening walk just to relax), planks, reverse push-ups, Lotte Berk/Core Fusion plieŽ squats (these are killer and they never get easier!) and Lotte Berk back dancing (it's given me an ass, LOL!) Sometimes I'll do an hour-long hike in the woods.
                              The kettlebells are really amping things up, though!
                              Oh, and I just signed on for a 90-day qigong commitment. I don't really consider it exercise, but it does condition the tendons and ligaments and build tons of physical energy. I should be feeling really good!

                                I went a little overboard considering my typical 20 minute workout:

                                15 mins shovelglove
                                30 minutes Parkour strength training
                                P90X Plyo

                                5 chicken thighs skin-on, 2 onions, 4 cloves garlic, ginger root, 1 lb mushrooms with 2 tbsp coconut oil, 2 tbsp cocnut milk 1 tsp olive oil and curry powder.

                                Big walk tomorrow should be nice.
