  1. Haha, that is pro. I wish my siblings were that cooperative with my primal lifestyle. How’d your sisters take to being called carcasses? Haha.

  2. OMG this is SO AWESOME. I was laughing so hard the whole time… loved when the sisters collapsed as you “killed them” with your sledgehammer.

    What a fun family!

  3. Awesome…. you should show how to cook them up for a nice primal meal and enter it into the recipe contest too LOL!

    Nice Job

  4. Dude! That was awesome!

    I’ve thought about chasing my siblings with the sledge. This is the same, but different… LOL

  5. Very very fun!! I like make-believe.

    I do have concern that you’re swinging the sledgehammer the same direction each time instead of five on the left side and five on the right. Although, I suppose Grok with only swing with the good arm; but he might switch when that side got tired…

  6. Awesome video! I especially liked how the girls fell over “dead” after 5-6 swings. Too funny!

    This gave me a really good idea on how I could do this in my yard by myself.

    Thanks for the vid!

  7. That was great! And very original. Kind of made me sad as my sisters are a ways away from me. Got me thinking a couple sandbags and a heavy kettlebell would work.

  8. Love it.

    I try to do the same thing with a sandbag.

    * It looks like you dropped the last carcass pretty hard. I hope it didn’t get bruised up 😉

  9. This workout could have been made better by making your ‘targets’ run first. Maybe chase them and when you tag them, they stop, you do the 10 hits and then carry to home. You could give them varying head starts too (and if they are random with their moves, it would be even more realistic)…

    Might have to borrow my little sisters and nieces and nephews some time. (or wait until my kids are a bit bigger so I can chase and eat them) 😛

    Good vid and idea in any case…

  10. Totally Awesome!!!! Like PaleoMum, I thought it would make it even more challenging if you had to chase the kill. Either way, very clever. Grok on!!!

  11. That was brilliant! Love the way they stay dead when you drop them off at the cave!

  12. This is so awesome. I think you would need to put in a little more effort to get a carcass of that size. 😉 Still an awesome workout, though!

  13. This is *hilarious*–I laughed like a loon the whole way through, but what a great idea for a workout! Love PaleoMum’s game suggestions, too =)

  14. Absolutely brilliant!

    We also liked your amulet, a symbol of sound old school ethics.

  15. This is the best workout video ever. I laughed and I’m actually looking forward to trying it. Great job.
