    My routine

    Primal Fuel
    Hey everyone.

    After failing at the gym for an embarrassingly long time I've managed to put something together (with the help of primal theory) which works for me. It's a very enjoyable workout with zero ninny lifts. 2 days per week and you should be able to bang this out in an hour or less. I went from 34' waist and a barrel shape to a 31' waist and this in about a month (80% credit to diet, of course)

    Attachment 8988


    back/chest:

    pullups 5x to fail

    deadlifts

    rows

    bb bench press

    "diamond" pushups 5x to fail

    2-4 day rest

    squat

    clean and press or over head press depending on mood

    lateral raises

    bent over lateral raises

    upright rows



    also I walk 3x per week abt 3 miles and I try to get one sprint workout in

    any questions, comments or critiques are certainly welcome. Thanks for reading.

    Agree and did not start out with this split in mind, it just felt natural to hit the chest on the same day I did pullups, and shoulders on a day I did cleans.

    do whatever works for you. as long as you are making progress. a lot of people prefer a push/pull split. you could even try a push/pull/squat day if you had 3 days for heavy lifting

    i think this is healthy, you have designed a program that is in tune with your body, everyone needs to do this eventually, after they are comfortable with the fundamentals.

    Actually that split works really well. It's much more symmetrical when it comes to joint actions and directions of movement!
