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.
