    Primal Fitness, You Are Doing It Right....

    ...When, you saw a dead tree limb down and your wife looks out the window and says to herself: "I bet my husband is going to do some sort of crazy paleo workout with that monstrous piece of wood".

    And she was right! I did some deadlifts, shoulder presses etc. These were pretty challenging because it was really unbalanced.

    And this is what I love about primal workouts, they don't have to be in a gym, you can make them up on the spot in your backyard and they are highly effective too.

    Sooooo, what is everyone’s favorite primal exercise that was improvised or can be done really quickly when you have a few minutes to spare?

    Push press with my kids

    First the five year old as a warm up, then the seven year old. If my sisters nine year old is here, I'll lift her as well but not so many times

    Ripping out a chicken coop with nothing but a sledgehammer and raw muscle.

    Climbing trees is a great idea, I usually have to resort to the playground equipment that my daughter is playing on, which tend to be really symmetrical and easy to grab= not to challenging.

    Sprinting after my Golden "Receiver" who doesn't want to retrieve the tennis ball. (Luckily, the other Golden does bring the ball back!)

    +1 for climbing trees. Boulders too. Lifting and throwing the biggest rocks I can find (and actually lift). Shouldering and carrying or dragging logs...

    I get yelled at for spending so much time off on my own when my fiance and I go camping...I get this insatiable urge to go out and do stuff.

    Ditto on the kid workout. Mine is carrying my 10 year old. He runs at me and jumps up and I catch him and then I walk around a bit or even run a few steps with him. I'm not in good enough shape to carry him far yet.
