29 Comments

Contest PollIt’s time for you to decide another winner! At the start of this 21-Day Challenge I put out a call for Primal Blueprint Workout Videos. And you responded with 8 top-notch clips. Boiling the submissions down to the top videos for this poll was no easy task. My crew and I discussed at length what made up a good fitness video. Was it fun and entertaining? Was the workout something we can see ourselves doing? Did it inspire and keep us watching? How well did it represent Primal Blueprint Fitness? On and on. In the end we held a blind vote and ended up with four picks. To everyone that didn’t make the cut, many, many thanks for taking the time to put together an amazing contribution to this year’s 21-Day Challenge. Honorable mentions go out to each and every one of you!

Before the vote, a recap of what’s at stake:

The Prize:

Two Square36 Workout Mats, Rad Roller All-In Kit, 4 boxes of EPIC Bars plus an EPIC bar t-shirt and bandana, 6 filet mignons & 12 pounds of ground beef from Bos Creek, and a Primal Blueprint Platinum Package. Total Value: $1057.98.

Watch all the videos in the playlist or via the links below, then vote for your favorite from the poll. Voting will close and a winner will be announced at 4 pm PST, Thursday, January 29.

  1. All of these videos were awesome! Ended up voting for Chris Cox… people need more grounding in their lives 🙂

  2. Hats off to all the contestants! I ended up voting for the boulder workout because of the inventive primal thinking and working with what he had available! Grok on!

  3. Why did all of these have to be great. Too hard to pick just one

  4. These were all so great! How can I choose ?? I particularly loved Chris Cox’s because of the originality, the Work out with little Grok because of the practicality (I have little groks myself and know how hard it is to exercise with them around), and the Family affair, because, come on, what an adorable family! But I voted for the Foraging Workout because the video and concept are so creative and really do fit into most people’s lives. We all need to commute more by our own bodily means, and really, this is how Grok and Grokettes most likely spent most of their days, traveling near and far to gather food, water, and hunt. Love it!

  5. I have a four way tie, so I had my German Sheppard watch them and he liked the ground work so Chris got my vote!

  6. Great videos and the family one (it look like you had lot’s of fun) is a great way to get every one on the wagon.

  7. Wow, I knew mine was lacking in the production department, but the competition was fierce!

    Chris Cox got my vote, even though I loved all of them, because it the most instructional, and accessible for all levels. e.g. I can barely do 1 pullup (and I’m proud of it because that’s lots of progress) so there’s no way I could do a weighted pullup just yet. It also looked like fun.

    That said, tactical caveman totally made me wanna buy a pair of clubs 🙂

    1. Thank you very much. It is fun, I find myself doing rolls and ground movements nearly every day.

  8. “Workout with Little Grok” made be tear up a bit remembering when my kids were that age. I used to bench press them. It was great. They had to stay stiff as a board as they went up and down. Good fun.

    I really wish I could vote for that one.

  9. These were all wonderful! I loved the workout with little grok because my kids have so much energy and love to spend time with dad. And I loved Chris Cox because i can definitely see the necessity for ground work and how much it could help. I ended up voting for Tactical caveman because I just loved the progression of the workouts… Made me feel like even I could do it!

    Thank you, EVERYONE for submitting the workouts. It is a huge inspiration to me to get out there and grok on!

    1. I’m glad people enjoyed my video with the kid but the others are certainly better than mine!

      Thanks for the comment, though.

      1. Don’t sell yourself short! I would have voted on yours if it was an option. I love the idea of incorporating kids into your workout, especially when time is so limited!

        1. I would have voted for yours (Little Grok) as well but didn’t see it as an option. Your taking care of yourself while teaching your son at the same time.

  10. I voted for Chris too. Primarily because I agree with getting on the ground and more importantly the moves are things I would not have thought of on my own. It is the one that I am most likely to watch again and attempt to try. It takes just a few square feet of floor space and requires no equipment. The inverted row can be performed under a table or desk. It reminds me of wrestling practices when I was in the best shape of my life, too long ago to mention.

    1. Very much appreciated and hope you do try to implement these.

  11. I love the one with little Grok! Even though I couldn’t vote for it.

  12. Why am I unable to vote for Little Grok workout???? I am a teenager but if I were an adult I would do this workout with my kid every day. That vid was amazing, although I voted for the boulder workout my true vote goes out to that man! Nonetheless all the others were great.

  13. I like Foraging Workout. The goal was food, not fitness. The attitude made the mundane fun enough to actually do, and actual doing was not optional long ago. The movement was on wheels, on pavement, which while very alien to ancient humans, at least in terms of calories burned probably most closely simulates the true activity level of humans for the first 3/4 of their evolution,1.5 millions years: not much, just sitting around all day eating leaves and figs, with a bit of movement from nest to garden. Little sprinting ever, no hunting. Had the forager ridden much farther, too many calories would have been burned and the analogy ruined!

  14. Looks like I’ll be coming in second. Thanks for all the votes people, glad to give you guys some inspiration and introduce some new movements. Check back in a few months on Human Animal Training on YouTube and I’ll have a few more videos that I think you will like. Thanks for choosing me Mark Sisson, love everything about the site and your rational and sensible teachings.

  15. I loved the workout with Little Grok! I was disappointed when I couldn’t vote for it! During this 21-day challenge, I’ve really started exercising with my son so much more. It’s great that you don’t have to worry if you’re doing it just right, you can just have fun, and suddenly you’ve got new muscles!
