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
Post one of the following in the comment section of this blog post:
Your favorite, regular, go-to workout, be it an existing WOW, or WOD from another source
A Primal workout of your own creation
Warmup: Ten lateral/anterior/posterior phalange swings, each digit, each direction.
I’m doing something a little different this week. Instead of me giving you a workout to complete, I want you to do it. I want to know what you guys are doing on your own time, what resources you’re drawing on for fitness inspiration, and what you’re able to put together yourself. I want to know how you work out, and I would love for you to tell everyone else who reads this website by submitting your workout to the comment section of this post.
Get creative here, folks, but not at the cost of effectiveness. I want to see WOWs that wow me while also providing an intense full-body workout. Choose a workout that you picked up elsewhere or one that you came up with and find yourself returning to over and over again. Or, conjure one up from your own brain on the spot. Include equipment or don’t. If you prescribe complex movements, include instruction or a (link to a) video that inexperienced people can watch to learn the movement. Don’t be afraid to push people – this is a tough bunch – but don’t kill anyone, either. Whatever you submit, tell us why you like it and what it can do for those who attempt it.
I’ll choose a winner at random from all submissions, and that person will receive a Primal gift pack, including the new “Live Long. Drop Dead.” t-shirt and other goodies. In case that phrase weirds you out, check out the recent post on compression of morbidity.
You have 72 hours to post your WOW to the comment section, so get to it! A winner will be announced in next week’s Workout of the Week.
