Contest: Primal Blueprint Workout Video

The Prize:

As far as workout equipment goes, the sandbag [1] is uber-Primal. No need for weight machines, a well-built sandbag will give you a full body workout (I dare you to work just one muscle group with a sandbag, it’s impossible!). It’s the Grok [2] equivalent of hauling a dead animal carcass, except without the funky smell and lingering gnats. Today’s unbustable lump of heavy is donated by Sandbag Fitness Systems [3]. These bags are used by the Naval Academy, NFL teams, and Division I programs, so they’ll be tough enough for modern Groks. The winner will receive a choice of the Strength package [4] or the Introductory package [5].

But wait, there’s more! A sandbag will help with strength training, but what about all that low level aerobic activity? For that, you’ll need a pair of Vibram Fivefingers [6]. If you’ve read Mark’s Daily Apple at all in the last two years, you probably know how much we love these things [7]. In fact, several Daily Apple all-stars are featured in the Vibram Fivefingers fan blog [8]. The winner will receive a choice of any of Vibram’s four designs of Fivefingers [9].

Not enough? How about a full line-up of Primal Nutrition [10] products. That’s right, I’m giving the winner my entire line of Primal products. The book [11], a Grok T-shirt [12], a bottle of Vital Omegas [13], a canister of Responsibly Slim [14] protein powder (your choice of dutch chocolate or vanilla creme), and an entire year’s worth of Damage Control Master Formula [15] (12 canisters!).

To recap, the winner will receive:

That’s a major grab bag of Primal goodness, but it’ll take more than a comment to win this time. For this contest you’ll have to work up a sweat…

The Contest:

After yesterday’s easy contest we thought we’d do an about face and throw you the mother of all contests. This is the big one. I want to tell you all about it now so you have plenty of time to complete the contest task, so here it goes.

Create and upload a Primal workout video to YouTube. Whether you talk and offer instruction, or simply film yourself playing in the park or working out in the gym is up to you. I’ll leave it wide open. The only requirement is that the video relates in some way to the Primal Blueprint Fitness philosophy. The more Primal the better.

Upload your video to YouTube and then email me the link [16]. I’ll publish select videos on Mark’s Daily Apple at the end of the month.

The video needs to be an original video made for the purposes of this contest. Please title the video “Primal Blueprint Fitness:” followed by your own sub-title.

(If you are wondering about how long the video should be click here [17].)


This is a video I filmed a while back of my beach sprint routine.

The Contest End Time:
