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. Makes me want to get to a playground right now!

  3. This was awesome- truly reflective of primal fitness. Kudos! I will be stealing a few ideas for my playground workout! I especially liked all the monkey bar options, very creative.

  9. That looks freaking awesome! I’ve been getting kind of board with my workout. Will have to try this out! Maybe my 11 year old son will do it with me.

  22. Wow, this makes me realize that we have sucky playgrounds around here. I couldn’t do most of that because don’t have the equipment (they ripped out a lot of stuff and left bare minimum).

    Looks like a lot of fun. To be a kid again!
