Welcome! If you want to lose weight, gain muscle, increase energy levels or just generally look and feel healthier you've come to the right place.
Here's where to start:
Thanks for visiting!
Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.
The “indigenous people’s stretch” is one the best practices to prepare for childbirth. I practiced it before all three of my births and all three were successful completely without medical intervention.
You’ve got it! I’ve used it for four births so far – opens the pelvic outlet by 60%!
The secret to keeping your legs from going numb is to make sure your heels are *planted*. Flat. And to get there takes some time. Start with legs really wide, maybe in some heeled shoes. I used to practice while brushing my teeth (a convenient amount of time) till I could do it easily.
Hands-down, still my favorite stretch for several years. I’ll often spend a large portion of a staff meeting squatting like that instead of sitting in a chair.
Dont people think of you as a weirdo? hah
I love the beach! What a great excuse to get to the beach even during a cold NZ winter! Thanks for the video
would love to get a pair of vibrams, delivery charges costs a bomb. no distributors in malaysia either…
Beach HIIT, nice
Thanks Mark for this easy way to stretch. This position on the other hand has also a very beneficial effect on the digestion system/lower internal organs – the position cures in a natural way any problems with constipation, gut and bladder inflammation, prostate problems etc.
The squat is a really, really great position to do daily. People who do this every day from toddlerhood on actually have grooves in their bones which allow them to squat for long periods with no real effort at balancing – raise your kids squatting and do them a big favor!
Very true, I will teach my kids since I can not do it. I have no flexibility at all. Could that be the reason I can´t or just because I have no practice what so ever
This is fantastic. I’m working on putting a training schedule together for a 10K my wife and I are doing at the end of March. I don’t want to do the distance-style schedule (I’ve done them before), especially since I’ve heard such great things about intervals. Going to try some sprint sets out for a few weeks to see how it feels! This stretch might be one of my new favorite things.
