Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More
Just so you know, the workout and recipe posts I publish aren’t just for show. They’re meant to inspire and inform, and although I know most of you take them to heart, I suspect a lot of people take mental notes while reading them without ever actually trying them out (it’s only human, after all). While the actual workouts are grueling and the prep work for some of the recipes takes time, the real difficulty for most people lies in mustering the resolve to get up and just DO it. “It’s the weekend” (So? Fuel up for the coming week.), “It’s such a nice day” (Exactly! Get outside and enjoy it!), or my favorite, “I’ll work out tomorrow” (Even you don’t believe that.) – excuses are a dime a dozen. But making excuses becomes far more difficult if you actually get up and try the workouts and eat the food. You’ll realize living Primally isn’t bad at all; that it’s actually a rewarding lifestyle that allows you to eat great food and get great results (I guess listening to your genes and thousands of years of evolution will do that).
With that in mind, I have a simple proposition for you.
Pick one of our workouts and complete it – no half-assing it, either… this is a formal challenge!
Slosh Tube Workout
Upper Body Plyometric Workout
Lower Body Plyometric Workout
If you’re injured, you’re allowed to take it easier.
Next, fuel up. Pick a Primal recipe, make it (or get your better half to help if you’re clueless), and eat it.
Game Meat Recipes
Primal Comfort Food
Primal Chili (you might want to get this started before you work out)
Thai Coconut Soup
Son of Grok’s Famous Primal Pizza

Sounds pretty easy, right? It is, with the right mindset.
Are you up for the challenge?
