  1. Wow! Awesome video! You look great and STRONG! I also love that you left in the part where you rested during the burpees. And I love that you’re workin’ out in the VFFs!

  2. awww. thanks you guys. so supportive. I love my vff’s! I wear them whenever I can.

    Jess, the song is by the Noisettes. Appropriately titled “Don’t Give Up.” I feel bad that I didn’t list them on the credits so thanks for asking.

  3. I just discovered this website and agree 100% with everything Ive read so far. What a nice website.

    I did crossfit for 5 yrs and there I was introduced to the paleo diet which I still follow. I outgrew crossfit and now do a kettlebell workout with heavy lifts of squats and dead lifts, lots of pullups, dips, bench presses, and sprints. I feel that sprints perhaps
    are one of the most beneficial events one can do. Kettlebells are very intense and not for everyonhe. I feel are much better than crossfit workouts for many reasons.

    I am 6ft 0 inches tall, 195 lbs, can bench 220, deadlift 350, do 45 kipping pullups, run 100 yds in 14 seconds, do
    8 handstand pushups, do 40 regular pushups, and have 10% body fat.
    Not world class numbers by any means
    but for a 61 yr old man not bad.

    Its interesting but I gave a speech at toastmasters just the other week on my own interpretation of primal living in a modern world before I found this website.
