    Great question- It's isolation work, for example curls, tricep extentions, lat push-downs, flys, lat pushdowns ect. I don't consider it a main workout, but I'm at the gym, and it helps to "look the part". It's also helpful if you over-do it on carbs, and requires no recovery.

    Ah ok. It sounds like something the boys from Jersey Shore might do, but apparently they actually lift really intensely - The Jersey Shore Workout is More Than Just Working Out | Fitness Breakout

    What do you mean by 'looking the part' at the gym?

    I run the training side of the gym so to sell memberships and training it helps to have good gym muscles, lol, even though they are mostly worthless. More relevantly it helps to convert the unbelievers to primal(I've had more success with that than is apparently common, must be helping).

    You must be seriously fit-looking then... I don't try to convert anyone to primal (except my family and even then I don't try to fully convert them, I just try to get them to stop eating wheat and oatmeal, and eat more animal protein) but I think if I tried they would just look at me like I was crazy. *someday* haha I'll be in good enough shape that people will take me seriously hopefully.

    It is kind of a snowball effect. When you not only have your success story, but also stories of other people IRL, and in my case, other clients, than it's more convincing.
