    1st Day. 1st wannabe Primal workout.

    Primal Fuel
    Started eating like a cave-ish person today, not hard, I love veggies and meat.
    Walked/jogged 2 miles, did 30 burpees in the a.m.
    Cleared brush, burnt brush from backyard.
    50 burpees tonight.
    Do you more cavish people think that is sufficient?
    Just as a bar to measure by, I'm 6ft 285lbs.
    Feeling Positive.

    80 burpees at your bodyweight is pretty impressive - probably too much for everyday, but good effort once in a while. also you say walked/jogged: I assume you walked because you could not jog all the way. if this is right, 2 miles is again quite a lot of effort for your current level.
    I would say today is almost a sprint day, so ensure sufficient recovery. And keep the exercises varied, and throw in some weights

    Had a old inner tube in the garage and building sand was free from the
    construction site next door so I made myself a Bulgarian sandbag!!
    Will that suffice for the heavy lifting for now if I use it while squatting?
    Thanks C. Palfrey and thanks for the "impressive" compliment Thor.
    Trust me, they were anything but impressive!! LoL!

    p.s.
    what are all the stars for next to my other post in Meet and Greet?

    Yeah, check them out when you get time - I post workouts every week and there are some instructional videos on there too. That might well do you weight-wise for now. You can also get hold of a bigger bag as and when you need it. I squat with a 90kg sandbag.

    That's pretty cool. How do you get it up your back? Or is it a "frontsquat"?

    I push jerk it up. Thankfully it is nice and easy to dump it at the end of the set

    Forgive my ignorance - push jerk would bring it from rack to overhead, right? How do you get it to rack? Do you clean it like you'd clean a barbell?
