...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.
Carting Niece (70 lb of kid weight) piggy back across half a mile of park because she was tuckered from playing.
"No fate but what we make"- Sarah Connor, Terminator 2
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Primal Battle Tome
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!)
Hikes along the coast climbing the rocks.
You are what you eat, so only eat the best!
Moving Bass Guitar equipment
+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.
