    Big Jim's Primal Journal

    Shop Now
    My goals for 2012:

    1) Get down to 220 lbs (Starting weight: 266 lbs)
    2) Do an unsupported handstand push up, a one-arm pull up, and clean & press my bodyweight
    3) Complete Warrior Dash race in St Louis in September
    4) Pass my PhD qualifying exams without getting overly stressed

    Plan:

    1) Eat Primal, move slowly often (daily walks with dogs 2-3 miles total), leangains style IF (12:00 - 20:00 feeding window)
    2) Lift heavy things (Convict Conditioning "Good Behavior" program 3x per week, lift heavy at the gym 1-2x per week)
    3) Register online, run with dogs 2x per week 1-2 miles, occasional longer runs/sprint workouts
    4) Get adequate rest and exercise to avoid over stressing
