If the thought of doing these basic movements sends anxious memories of gym class to your brain or you think that there is no way you could ever do a push-up, have no fear!
Take a look at this 5 minute kitchen workout that literally everyone can do some form of, in a video demonstrated by another handsome man.
In these videos, Mark Sisson will take you through the exercises with helpful pointers and modifications for your fitness level. I don’t expect you to drop down and give me 20 – try starting on a wall or the kitchen counter. Work up to it. You are building your fitness level, so expect it to take some time.
Begin with an easy five-minute warmup of easy cardiovascular exercise, and then complete two sets of maximum repetitions (for YOU!) of pushups, squats, pull-ups (or tricep dips), and abdominal planks.
If you are healing and you are not ready for this yet, do not worry. You can come back to it anytime. It won’t be long until you have the energy and desire to take on new challenges. This is your journey, no one else’s.
Whew, that was sure hard work showing you all of that! 🤪
You can download the Primal Fitness Pyramid to look at later or just come back here and Mark will do them over and over for you.
You’re welcome ladies.
