  1. And I thought I was the only one who dove in and out of the bike racks! One time I was doing that in front of the Federal Building, and you wouldn’t believe the dirty looks I was getting from the armed security guards. I cut my routine short because it looked like they were going to shoot me.

    Good video, nice choice of music.

  2. Nice work! I like the creativity in using your surroundings.

    Personally, I think bench dips are too dangerous for the shoulders and the load on the triceps themselves is too small to be effective. If you want a safer blast on the triceps, try some diamond pushups.

  3. Static stretching before exercise? Not the best tbh.. all pre-exercise mobility work needs to be dynamic really. Static stretching after exercise.

    Also you might want to alternate the leg you use to push yourself over the fence or else you risk increasing mobility in one hip more than the other.

  4. I respect your commitment and passion but I would be really surprised if this routine diminishes your chunkiness. The same for the guys in “A day in the life..” You are all relatively strong, relatively fit guys but still quite blubbery and unsculpted. I have a sense that MS looks so good because he began with a great physique -excellent clay to further mould if you like.

    1. This comment was all about me – not you. I wanted to see how it would “feel” to write what I was thinking without censorship. To externalise the internal voice in an attempt to annhilate it. It felt pretty CRAP!So I learn that rather than express the thoughts I need to change the thinking..
      I’m sure you are way too motivated and committed to be remotely affected by my comments but I am sorry if I hurt you. I wish you luck with your Primal Lifestyle!

    2. Is this Portia chick serious? It’s a stone cold lock that what she is “externalizing” is her own internal unhappiness.

      Cut down on those carbs, Portia, and start feeling better!
