    Hey,

    My name is Steve. I'm from Melbourne in Australia and I have been primal/paleo for about 6 months and I love it!

    I did a workout today at my basketball court which involved (about 30 to 60 minutes):

    1 set of 5 free throws, and laying up after each shot followed by:

    1 set of either 10 push ups, 4 - 5 pull ups/chin ups, side or normal planks or 20 squats

    I would then repeat, E.G.:

    5 free throws / 10 push ups / 5 free throws / 1 plank / 5 free throws etc. (I also would sometimes add in an extra round of planks for a longer rest period e.g. 5 free throws / 1 plank / 5 free throws / 1 plank etc.)

    At the end of the workout I ended up acheiving:

    - 55 push ups
    - 60 squats
    - Around 20 chin ups / pull ups
    - Around 5 - 8 different planks

    Is this is a good primal workout? What could I improve, add in, remove, is the intensity correct? The amount of reps etc.?

    Also, is it normal to feel really fatigued after this? I had a slight headache and felt like I was going to vomit and generally felt sick, but after about 30 minutes felt fine. I think this is normal but just wanted to make sure.

    Thanks for your help!!

    Sounds like a good warm-up before you get a workout done.

    Kidding...mostly. If you're new to working out, good job. Feeling sick only happens to me when I squat or deadlift super heavy, so I dunno. Make sure you're hydrated.
