Random Pics to Hold You Over

August 10th, 2009

Its been a while since I cleared out the picture archive so I thought I would do another photo post for some entertainment until I get my next post up. I like to post periodic pictures of myself to show that I haven’t fallen off the wagon and primal is still really working for me. [...]

Barefoot Madness?

August 5th, 2009

Most of you have probably met John Sifferman in the comments section of my posts. John operates a website Real World Strength Training that is definitely worth checking out. John has some really cool ideas and methods for training. I must admit that I stole the squat jump movements that I am currently doing from [...]

I live in Albuquerque New Mexico. Albuquerque is quite frankly… well it’s a rather terrible place to live if you ask me. Surprisingly, Albuquerque has been turning up in many lists lately of “best places to live”. Let me tell you… they are wrong. Anyone that says that this is a great place to live [...]

The Importance of Solitude

July 23rd, 2009

Climbing with Fitness Fail

June 11th, 2009

The wife and I had the pleasure of meeting up with bloggers Chris from Fitness Fail and Rayna. They were passing through to some remote part of New Mexico (lets be honest… MOST of New Mexico is remote). We enjoyed an evening of climbing and good ol’ barbecue. Both Chris and Rayna are extremely fit, [...]

Its been a while since I had a post that wasn’t me being depressed, pensive, overly thoughtful or whiny. Sorry about that. I think it has been a mixture of no time to exercise, being too injured to exercise, and working from dark to dark which = no vitamin D. So lets get back to [...]

*The picture is completely unrelated to the post but i needed a picture. This is me harvesting coffee in what I imagine is the true Columbian tradition for ages… at the grocery store Last night I was finally able to work out again. This is after a 4 day hiatus from training. I am sure you [...]

Primal Activity: Climb Something

February 26th, 2009

This was the reason I was in such a good mood after the weekend. 2 hours of rock climbing and I felt like I had just taken a 2 week vacation! We were having so much fun that I only thought to take that one bad (really bad) picture. I am now an addict.We went to our local [...]

Alright, so you are now an expert at walking. You also have your sprinting regimine down pat. It is time to throw in some resistance training… aka weight lifting. Now, for you girls that are shrugging off this post as one for the guys… DON’T. I am only going to say this once (for now)… WOMEN [...]

Alright so now you have your walking regimene in place from last week. Whats next? Well, a great next step is to incorporate some sprinting into your exercise routine one to two times per week. There are a lot of different sprinting and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) protocols out there but the bottom line is [...]
