    I have been keeping a workout log over at fitnessspotlight for a while now and figured I'd post them here to to get a primal opinion.

    O.H. Press 120lb 5x5 (5,4,3,4,4)

    Deadlift 305lb 1x5

    Remember the primal law "lift heavy things"! Your routine seems pretty primal to me. What I do is to "primailfy" my own intense lifting is to try to NEVER do the same split/exersices/reps two weeks in a row. I gym 3(sometimes 4) times a week and work every muscle directly once a week, and get some indirect work from the "basic" movements, presses, squats, rows.

    I also use lots of supersetting: benchpress/barbell row, chin ups/incline press, curls/extensions etc.


    As long as the "law" is followed you will be doing fine.

          day one of no cheese(the only dairy I still eat)


          I wanna finish the month not eating any cheese. This isn't planned as a permanent thing...but being stuck at 13% BF is getting real old

                      I too used to do the Musclehack MANS diet and THT training. The carb ups left me feeling like crap for a couple of days afterwards. No motorvation, energy, lethargic etc. How are you finding the PB way of life and lifting heavy things ? Having no structure to a workout seems alien to me but am always willing to give it a go !!

                        I used MANS and TSPA for a while, but TSPA was way to much calculation for me. I still use ideas and principals from both. MANS is very primal friendly for the lowcarb part obviously. I still do a "carb-up" every now and then, but it isn't religiously every weekend...only if my performance dictates that I need one. Also I keep the carb ups primal which seems to prevent the lethargic feelings afterwords...


                        Also the HIIT from TSPA fits with the primal blueprint, but I do less of it...but when I do do it it is very intense and all out


                        I never really did THT because of my schedule. I actually follow stronglifts 5x5...this last week has been kinda unschedule/light because of work...but if you check out my other log ( http://www.fitnessspotlight.com/foru...st=0&sk=t&sd=a ) you'll get a better idea of what I do.


                        my back squats have gone from 165 to 210....so somethings gotta be working

                          1) Wide-grip pull-ups, as many reps as possible (8,6,6)

                          2) Rest for ten seconds

                          3) Medium-grip pull-ups, as many reps as possible(3,2,2)

                          4) Rest for ten seconds

                          5) Medium-grip chin-ups, as many reps as possible(3,2,2)

                          6) Rest for ten seconds

                          7) Narrow-grip chin-ups, as many reps as possible(2,2,1)

                          8) Rest for three minutes

                          9) Repeat steps 1-8 twice


                          dips 3xF with 30 sec rest (10,6,2)


                          last two days not very good food wise...still ate all primal, except i broke and had a bunch of pecans and cheese...so my calories were probably pretty high
