Found this page after reading about cheapo's success with it over at Mark's Daily Apple. My health journey began last April when I discovered the primal lifestyle and began running for fitness/pleasure. I dropped 50 pounds in four months and was a few weeks away from my first half marathon when I hurt my hip. As it tends to do, the injury sidelined my healthy eating habits as well and I packed 25 pounds back on while pretty much stopping running for the rest of 2012. My New Year's resolution is to get back on the primal path, run a road race every month and put on some muscle! I hate the gym/lifting weights so this program seems like the perfect place to start. So without further ado:
Week of 1/14/13
I can't do a single push up or pull up to save my life so its body rows and modified push ups for me. I do 3 times the outlined reps for those exercises:
L1D1: 15 rounds
I've always been pretty weak so I'm pretty sure I'll be at level 1 for awhile. The modified push ups are a killer for me (63 of them on day 3!) and my form suffers for it. I think next week will be a lot better as I was getting into the rhythm the first week.
Ran my 5k for January on Saturday! Luckily for me it was about 45 degrees so it wasn't too painful. Finished in 29:30 which could have been way worse as I really haven't run since early November and I'm carrying more weight since then. Down about 8 pounds since the first of the month so I'm feeling pretty good about this whole routine.
