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.

  1. Awesome!

  5. Wow! Awesome video! You look great and STRONG! I also love that you left in the part where you rested during the burpees. And I love that you’re workin’ out in the VFFs!

  7. awww. thanks you guys. so supportive. I love my vff’s! I wear them whenever I can.

    Jess, the song is by the Noisettes. Appropriately titled “Don’t Give Up.” I feel bad that I didn’t list them on the credits so thanks for asking.

  9. I just discovered this website and agree 100% with everything Ive read so far. What a nice website.

    I did crossfit for 5 yrs and there I was introduced to the paleo diet which I still follow. I outgrew crossfit and now do a kettlebell workout with heavy lifts of squats and dead lifts, lots of pullups, dips, bench presses, and sprints. I feel that sprints perhaps
    are one of the most beneficial events one can do. Kettlebells are very intense and not for everyonhe. I feel are much better than crossfit workouts for many reasons.

    I am 6ft 0 inches tall, 195 lbs, can bench 220, deadlift 350, do 45 kipping pullups, run 100 yds in 14 seconds, do
    8 handstand pushups, do 40 regular pushups, and have 10% body fat.
    Not world class numbers by any means
    but for a 61 yr old man not bad.

    Its interesting but I gave a speech at toastmasters just the other week on my own interpretation of primal living in a modern world before I found this website.
