    I'm scared of my workout, LOL

    Primal Fuel
    Hey guys,

    I've been working out for the past 2 months. Mostly compound, fuctional, full-body exercises like squats, rows, dumbbell presses, deadlifts, pullups, etc.

    My workout tomorrow consists of the following:

    Dumbbell Plank Rows x 8 (40 lb dumbbells)
    Burpees x 8
    Dumbbell Presses x 8 (40 lb dumbbells)
    Alternating Split Squat Jumps x 8
    Dumbbell Squat Cleans x 8 (40 lb dumbbells)

    I can rest for 1-2 minutes after this superset and then I have to do it again for a total of 4 times.

    I know it's gonna hurt!

    Wow, for me that would be a challenge, especially when doing it for time. Good luck! Second day post workout oughta feel nice.
    Lurker since September 2010; "Primal" (I'm not a food Nazi for myself) since March 2011. Doing well on low two-digit BF and 159lbs being 5ft.10. Gaining some weight and mass doing more strength work next to MMA cardio (so yeah I eat a lot of carbs, some days even more than 100 grams a day! )

    Yeah, I guess it's called HIIT with strength training. Monday was deadlifts x 8 (165lb) followed by plyo-pushups x 8 followed by lunges with dumbbell presses x 8 (45 lb dumbbells) followed by burpees.

    I don't know if it's Paleo, but it's TOUGH.

    Have you considered doing each exercise one after another for 4 rounds? I feel like that might suck more and rev up the intensity to a higher level.

    Hey Jimmy,

    Yeah, I do all of the exercises, one after another and then rest for 1-2 minutes before doing it again. After completing 2 cycles, I feel like crying... lol
