Warmup: 1 minute eye rotations, alternating counter-clockwise and clockwise. Twenty seconds rapid blinking.
Today marks the end of the Primal Blueprint Fitness Workouts of the Week . If you’re sad, don’t be. If you’re glad, keep it to yourself! I like to think I’ve left you with plenty of tools to play with. And if you think infinite variety is desirable, or even possible, I have a slightly different take. Variety is important, but so is consistency. At some point, there comes diminishing returns on increasing variety. You don’t want a toolbox with too many similar tools, many of which accomplish the same task as the one beside it. Paralysis by overabundance of choice is a very real thing.
52 workouts is a good, solid amount – one for each week of the year. Within each workout, you can make subtle alterations to completely change the experience. One handed carries instead of two handed carries. Weighted lunges instead of unweighted lunges. One day a sandbag, the next a water jug. Flat ground sprints and hill sprints. Grok crawls and then backward Grok crawls (try it – it’s pretty tough!). Just keep moving!
The WOW archives  will always be available, and you’ll always be able to return to them and do any that you liked or try any that you missed.
I’m excited to get back into more specific fitness coverage. You can expect regular posts on a variety of topics relating to physical culture, now that I can spend more energy on their research (and implementation into my own workout regimen). Thanks for reading, thanks for WOWing, and Grok on!
