I am wanting to start moving my body in a Primal way, but not really getting it. I am 29 years old, 5'8", 336 pounds ... fit in the sense that I do more then any fat person I have ever known. I can tie my shoes, move, play with the kids, get up and down off of the floor, etc. I don't want to join a gym (which I believe I don't have too!)
At home I have Leslie's Walk away the pounds videos that have interval training in them. I have 2,3, & 4 miles.
I have a stationary bike that has several levels, heart rate monitor, etc.
I have Slim in 6 videos...
My heart rate is good. I do get tired in my muscles after about 15 mins, but can push to 40 minutes. I have trouble deciding when enough is enough time. My heart must be good b/c on the bike I can ride at level 6 as fast as I can go and only get my heart to stay around 110-115 BPM, if I want my heart rate highter I have to go to level 8 and that will put me between 130-135 BPM... so which is more Primal??? And for how long should I ride?
What about the body weight/strength training? Would the Slim in 6 be good?
I live in NYC and walk my daughter back and forth to school (usually pushing the two of them which is 75 pounds in a double stroller) and it is about 1/2 mile one way....
So please, I'm looking for some good primal advise, and don't be scared by my weight.. I'm strong and have bigger calf muscles then most body builders, I just also have a lot of fluff over all of the strength!
Thanks for reading!
