WOW: Your Turn

Post one of the following in the comment section of this blog post:

Your favorite, regular, go-to workout, be it an existing WOW [1], 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 [2] and other goodies. In case that phrase weirds you out, check out the recent post on compression of morbidity [3].

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.

What Are WOWs?

  • Workouts of the Week (WOWs) are an optional component of Primal Blueprint Fitness [4] that add a fractal and often fun and playful quality to the basic PBF protocol.
  • In most cases WOWs should only be completed by those that have mastered Level 4 of each Lift Heavy Things Essential Movement. Also, it’s recommended that WOWs replace one or both Lift Heavy Things workouts or the Sprint workout (depending on the WOW) each week instead of being done in addition to the Lift Heavy Things and Sprint workouts.
  • Learn more about WOWs and Primal Blueprint Fitness by getting the free eBook [4]. And access all Workouts of the Week in the WOW Archive [1].
