    Tales of the Hunt - Apex Predator's Chronicles

    Shop Now
    Vitals:

    29 years old

    5'10"

    Very roughly 200lbs - not really trying to significantly add or lose weight

    No underlying health issues

    Goals in order:

    1. Health
    2. Strength
    3. Longevity
    4. Appearance (mostly for indirect reasons)

    My diet is closer to PaNu by Kurt Harris than Primal. I eat dairy regularly and do not consider it a cheat. I eat some starches, i.e. potatoes and white rice and generally do not consider them a cheat. I don't eat much fruit.

    I eat a lot.

    Supplementation:

    Plant-based multis
    Fish Oil
    D3+K2
    Mg(sometimes packaged with Calcium)

    Exercise:

    Intentional workouts are almost always heavy barbell training. Sometimes I sprint, and I'm generally pretty active. Both my jobs involve moving around a lot, with some repetitive light lifting.

    Journal Notes:

    My entries will be sporadic, with likely more workouts posted than diet.

    My goal is to have a place to record a rough snapshot of my life from a Primal perspective, and to bounce ideas off of like-minded people without having to explain my version of the lifestyle every time.

    I'm also a personal trainer who uses(or at least tries to use, people are stubborn) primal with my clients. So this will also be a place to discuss that, to a degree.

    Comments and critiques are always welcome, and while I will argue with you, you won't hurt my feelings.

    Squats:

    Warm-ups:
    135x5
    185x5
    225x5
    Work Sets:
    275x3
    315x3
    355x3

    Last set of squats was slightly easier than expected.

    Hise Shrugs (progressing slowly on these to minimize stress-biofeedback)
    225x5
    275x5
    315x5

    Did a ~10sec static hold at the top of squat position with 405

    Tried some single leg dumbbell Romanian dead-lifts I saw somewhere, but didn't like them.

    Will likely do a pretty-boy workout later.

    Did a pretty-boy workout last Wed.

    Didn't work out on Sat as usual, due to cortisol levels.

    Squats

    135x5
    185x5 - some tightness in left hip, stretched some afterward
    225x5 - still some tightness in the hip, feels like it needs to pop

    275x3 - still some tightness, not interfering with lift
    315x3 - diminishing hip tightness
    365x3 - minimal hip tightness - reps were grinding, not ideal

    Hise Shrugs

    225x5
    275x5
    315x5
    365x5

    Of course, the hip pops putting away the plates.

    Slight neck discomfort, I think bar placement wasn't ideal for one of the middle shrug sets.

    Will probably do a pretty boy workout later.

    Squat

    135x5
    185x5
    225x5

    275x3
    335x3
    375x3 - not pretty. Slow, grinding reps, depth may or may not have been perfect on last rep.

    Omitting Hise shrugs to hopefully facilitate recovery.

    Will probably do prettyboy workout later.
