A while back it seems a cute little diet ran into a hunky exercise regime while shopping at the farmer???s market. The two clicked instantly, and have been in bed together ever since. Why is crossfit so popular among the paleo crowd, and vice... (more)
So a little background...I'm a 31 year old male, right now I'm weighing in at 200 even. Last year I got into running ultras and dropped down to a low weight of 168, but injured myself and ended up putting the weight back on bringing me to my... (more)
Based on the diet in your comment "My diet and schedule...", I offer the following: Too much snacking. Don't snack. Move the snack calories to mealtimes. Do your morning workout fasted, and move the pre-workout protein to post-workout. Eat your... (more)
Unsure what is going on here, and if anyone has any advice I'd love to hear it. I've been paleo for two years. I'm 26, male, have lost 45 lbs, and weight roughly 212. Bench=280, Squat=360, Dead lift= 435, body fat percentage around 19%. I... (more)
I hear a lot of people exercise because of weight, and while that has in past been a challenge for me, I legitimately love endurance racing--running, biking, swimming--and competing in events. I love cardio because I love the way it makes me feel.... (more)
I really hate cardio -- is it necessary for fat loss? How often do you guys do cardio? I do lift heavy full body (heavy for me that is) at least 3x week (sun tues thurs) THen I do a semi HIIT treadmill thingy 2x week (mon and fri) --1 hr long ... (more)
I've read that exercise doesn't help that much for fat loss, but surely SOME exercise will help at least a little no? I've got a choice of doing either cardio or weights to supplement a new Paleo diet routine and I wanted to ask which one you... (more)
Okay, so I know that it is ideal to mix both cardio and strenghth together, but I am kind of not sure how to make it worth iwth little free time? I feel like I am bulking up underneath fat rather than any fat loss...Any fitness expert willing to... (more)
For fat loss, I would do 100% strength and low-intensity exercise like walking, and 0% cardio. My primary form of exercise used to be running (csrdio) about 12-14 miles per week. I got ok at it but never felt great and never lost weight. One day... (more)
Hello everyone, I've been doing paleo for about 5 weeks now, and while I don't do much cardio, I'd like to be able to at least run a mile at a good speed. I used to run 2-3 miles 7:00-7:30 pace no prob before paleo, now I can't come close to... (more)
"I'm trying to lose the last bit of fat and havent been eating many carbs." That's your problem. Ever notice that when you eat low carb, your arms and legs begin to feel weak and tingly? It's because they are.
My brother is a huge fan of the Joe Rogan podcast, even before Robb Wolf was a guest a while back (if you haven't checked that episode I recommend it especially to introduce others). My brother mentioned how Joe Rogan had surgery to "fix" his... (more)
one of my closest friends is really into getting spay tans, putting on a bikini, and prancing around in clear stripper heels. :) she asked me to be her cardio buddy. i lawled... she's doing AM and PM cardio, that's two hours total a day. she... (more)
I understand that cardio is largely looked down upon in the PH community but I'm interested to hear from folks who have found that adding some regular cardio to your life has helped you to lean out when just eating a clean diet didn't. I'm a big... (more)
I used to go out dancing three times per week, for at least three hours. I drank copious beers and ate copious pizzas. since beginning primal three years ago, I have swapped dancing for walking and light weights. I have been moderating beer. I've... (more)
Three hours of hard dancing is fantastic exercise. I had heaps of mates who used to stay thin when we were young, I'm sure it was partly because of this. Oh.. and the drugs. Actually, probably the drugs.
maybe it's a macho man thing... but I feel like I should buy some dumbells and just do normal workout routines from when I was in high school. A friend loaned us his P90X dvd's and we've been doing them for a short time. I know results can be... (more)
I did P90X with Paleo and LeanGains and saw great results. In the beginning I just used resistance bands because I was traveling alot for work. But then I was able to switch to using adjustable dumbbells and thats when I saw even better results.... (more)
We dislike chronic cardio, ie long distance running, and it makes sense when we look at a sprinter's body vs. a marathon runner's body. My question is, does this also hold for swimmers? Michael Phelps swims 6 hrs a day 6 days a week and trains for... (more)
I have been eating Paleo for the past two months and I just can???t seem to make much of a dent in the fat around my mid-section and I really need help. After the first month I saw some reduction, but now at the end of the second month there has... (more)
A friend and I are thinking of signing up for a 5k in the coming months. Is there an upper limit in terms of mileage for you and training for/running events? What point does the mileage/training get to be too much for you in terms of what you'd... (more)
Been looking to get one of those calcium scores and found a close place. Emailed them and got the following back. Is it a good price and is there some other testing mechanism that'll give me a calcium score for less? Here is what I got emailed... (more)
I found the Heart Scan Blog recently, and I must confess that it interests me. However, I am unable to find out very much about the accompanying program without shelling out $80 or more. Now I'm not opposed to spending that money and indeed it... (more)
I'm looking to get into my cardio status in a way that gets past the usual numbers and find out more. I have seen mention made to this calcium scoring thing and that it's not expensive, but I wouldn't know how to go about getting it done. Thanks... (more)
I just watched a very interesting Ted talk by Christopher McDougall, author of "Born to Run". Here's the link to the video. (I've also read the book which is very interesting) His whole thing is about barefoot running, but the setup is what I... (more)
There is big difference in hunting 2 times per week (probably different runner every hunt) and resting / low intensity for rest of the time and running 1+ hr 5+ times per week with 8+ hr jobs.
Now that I get my exercise from resistance training and full body movement/complex exercises, is there anything that is not chronic cardio that I can use this treadmill for? I definitely have some body fat to lose, but from what this site says... (more)
If you enjoy watching television, I think the argument could be made that watching television while walking on the treadmill would be better than watching it while sitting on the couch. Walking is always good.
Cardio isn't strictly paleo, but I've got to get to work somehow. I cycle a bit, commuting (at speed) around 20 miles a day. I try to limit my carb intake, generally it's less than 30g (about 6-10% of my daily intake). The rest is split between... (more)
I'm 25 and just joned an adult swim team a few weeks back. BCAAs alone before are not enough to get me through the workout without dying. I'm not a breakfast guy and all my practices are in the morning. Should I take a whey protein shake before... (more)
Ok so I know this is a weird question but am I getting weaker from paleo? I started the whole 30 program ( cutting out sugar, grains and upping protein fats etc..) and one thing I didn???t follow was I stepping on the scale. So far in the past... (more)
Hey all! I have been zoning for a while now, but I am still unsure of my block intake. (Today I Was told I to probably up my fats) I do CrossFit about 6 times a week, and extra cardio 3-5 of those days. I am a woman, 5'3" aout 127-132 pounds... (more)
