    I like the concept behind BBS; however, it is much harder than you'd think to work out in this fashion. For one, you look goofy in a gym of people lifting conventionally. As well, you really need a spotter because you are max lifting and using negatives.

    I am 53. I have logged years under a barbell. My plan is to now workout more than I did last year, which was nothing. So, getting to the gym, running a bit on the tread and then going through a fast paced circuit, alternating my body parts 3 x's a week is monumental!

    Enough volume in the weight room to require a split is considered excessive by primal standards.
    2-3 short full-body workouts of a few basic compounds is the rx
    Free weight or bw really just depends on preference.

    You might not like the ful HIT/BBS road but the slow resps sure are good at reducing peak forces and being easy on the joints.

    Add a sprint/interval workout each week
