I am so happy with the physique that being Primal has given me. I feel lean and strong and healthy. I no longer hide behind layered long sleeve shirts and wear shirts when I go swimming. I welcome an opportunity to wear a tank top to the park or to hit the pool or hot tub shirtless. Not everyone that finds the “Low carb lifestyle” is so lucky though. Lets be honest, not every “low carb success story” ends with a physique that I would would want to aspire too. I am sorry… it is just the truth. I honestly believe that is because all “low carb lifestyles” (can you tell that I hate that label?) are NOT created equal.
I don’t want to take anything away from other success stories. I still think they are phenomenal achievements. However, I want to look like Mark or SuperMike when I grow up.
So what sets people like Mark Sisson and Mike OD and Supermike and Rusty apart from the crowd? Exercise. Exercise is something that is an integral part of the Primal Blueprint and I give exercise a lot of credit for taking my physique the direction it has gone. We all know that diet is 80% of the equation (or whatever % you what to argue) but exercise is still SO important in getting to your goals.
I have been receiving quite a few e-mails and questions lately from readers wanting to start incorporating workouts into their healthy lifestyles but not knowing where to begin. This though had never really occurred to me. It was easy for me to know what exercises to do and to incorporate workouts into my Primal Blueprint lifestyle because I had previous experience. But what about people that don’t know where to begin?
So, I give you “Exercise for beginners”. Starting tomorrow and over the next couple weeks, I will be posting some exercises and some workouts that are simple and straight forward for the exercise newbie to start incorporating.
