I need some help getting myself into an exercise routine. I've been working on my diet for the last year and now that I have that in line, the next thing is exercise. I'm not so much wanting to exercise for weight loss or for body image reason,... (more)
I'm a big fan of Mark Sisson's approach to exercise (see below). I think it's a really "less is more" kind of thing. You need to be active in general (as much low and slow as you can do), but what you have to do specifically as "exercise" is a lot... (more)
How necessary is exercise in living a paleo lifestyle? Is it sufficient to simply eat paleo foods or are there greater benefits by adding short intense exercise sessions into daily life?
Does anybody know the ramifications of exercise with alcohol in your system? I completely understand the concept is horrible. The reason I ask though is that a few years back, I used to play soccer on a team that always met up for drinks before... (more)
I am trying to do some research on various types of exercise (HIIT, power-lifting, hypertrophy oriented, endurance, plyometric, etc) while in ketosis. I am currently doing zero carb to drop a few body fat percentage points quickly. I have been... (more)
I have hashi's and adrenal issues. I have heard that HIIT and Crossfit might not be best for people with autoimmune diseases. What exercises are best? Can I still get intense?!
Hi Folks, So I know that beer is pretty carb concentric and close to the antithesis of paleo; however, Halloween is approaching and my house is throwing a party. Since I will be one of the host, I am choosing beer over liquor to keep my wits... (more)
I am working my back to being Paleo/Primal after a few months away due to, well, life. I'm determined to make this a lifestyle change and not just a short term diet. I do have a fitness questions. It is easiest for me to get in my workout around... (more)
I've been Paleo now about 2 months. Most of meals are directly from paleo recipes, so the macronutrients. ratios should be correct. My problem is after an 60 minute walk I smell of ammonia. I started my journey at a whopping 430 pounds and have... (more)
Hi everyone...I wanted to know if any of you have experienced bloating immediately after exercise? My husband has noticed that every time I get home from Crossfit, running, or any other exercise, that my stomach gets really bloated, then... (more)
I would say it's cortisol. Cortisol levels rise and then fall an hour or two after exercise. I've experienced the same thing. Hour or two of sitting around, and it goes away after.
I know, a very basic question, but I'm perhaps looking for some motivation/inspiration to kick-start some sort of regime. I don't quite know where to start, or even WHY to start, other than I SHOULD. What gets you up exercising every day? (more)
Hello out there. I've been Primal/Paleo since July 1 of last year and experienced an almost complete elimination of life-long emotional symptoms including depression, anxiety, PMS and self-hatred. It was nothing short of amazing. Unfortunately the... (more)
Hello everyone! I am new to the whole Paleo and its workouts. I read Mark's Daily Apple and research some exercises on the internet but am very confused with all the information out there. On Mark's website, he mentions heavy lifting and other... (more)
Okay, I must disagree that women should lift like men. There are various perceptions of what "bulky" and "lean" mean to us. Personally, I do not want a single hint of bulging biceps. Some women might, and that's cool too. Here's the thing. Do the... (more)
Continuing to lose weight. I'm down 35# since January. I had a fairly long plateau, but now I've lost several pounds again. Measurements keep decreasing and I'm feeling energy and mentally I feel great. After a rather severe injury back in June,... (more)
I've been following Mark's primal blueprint for exercise for 4 months now and I've made some great progress over that time. The issue now is breathing during the intense workouts (sprinting and what not). I feel like I could push my muscles much... (more)
Yes it will improve over time but not in weeks you have to think longer term. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VO2_max This is why intervals are popular as an training method by regularly going into oxygen debt (insufficient amount to maintain the... (more)
