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. Squat that butt down and lean more when you plant and turn and your legs will burn like never before!! :)

  3. Doing gr8 for fifty-eight!

    This one workout is more exercise than most people your age have done total since their 40’s. Keep up the good work!

  4. Watching these workout videos make me realize I’m not the only one who looks crazy to the neighbors when I work out.

  5. It’s nice to see you make great use of a small outdoor space. Too many people think their yards are too small to workout! Look here! Not so at all.

    Great job!

  6. I had intended to listen to Bach’s Mass in B minor today after lunch, but thanks to a slight cold and a lack of sleep last night, I ended up taking a nap.

    I awoke feeling groggy, and found this post. I couldn’t think of any better excuse to leave the house again, so I went to the park just across the street, and tried your exercises.

    After a run-through, I had a “rest” period where I playfully alternated short sprints and short rests, leaping, rolling, squatting, etc. I tried to emulate the dogs that were playing in the park! I followed this “rest” with another run through of your exercises. I then took a short walk, and laid in the grass for a few minutes. Some dogs came over to play more.

    I followed Paul’s suggestion to incorporate squats into your sprints. And now I think I will also follow your lead, when you say that music sounds great after a workout, and finally listen to the B minor Mass!

  7. Wanna Do your name, “Suicide Mark”, some justice? Jump over the fence and play frogman! (That video game where the frog crosses the street avoiding incoming traffic)
    Just kidding (or did I just come up with something there?) Great workout! Love your garden. Keep it up.

  8. Nice! Good workout.

    Music being better on an exercise high makes perfect sense. I’m definitely going to try this!
