Weekend Primal Health Challenge
Posted By Mark Sisson On March 7, 2009 @ 9:32 am In Health,Health Challenges | 8 Comments
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!
Walking Workout 
Bodyweight Workout 
Prison Workout 
Kettlebell Workout 
Slosh Tube Workout 
Sandbag Workout 
Sprint Workout 
15-Minute Workout 
Ultimate Frisbee 
Clubbell 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.
Pepper Recipes 
Game Meat Recipes 
Primal Comfort Food 
Primal Chili  (you might want to get this started before you work out)
Thanksgiving Redux 
Thai Coconut Soup 
Son of Grok’s Famous Primal Pizza 
Mackerel, Halibut, and Egg Recipes 
15 Minute Primal Meals 
Stir-Fry Adventure 
Primal Iterations of Classic Salads 
Or browse through our recipe archives .
Sounds pretty easy, right? It is, with the right mindset.
Are you up for the challenge?
