There are many other reviews extolling the virtues and benefits of not only this book but the Paleo lifestyle choice itself and of the author Darryl Edwards. I will only expand on the benefits I have perceived and documented during the completion of the Level 1 workout phase.
To set some context, I am a father of four in my 40's, working consistently long hours in a stressful office environment which singularly tax the average persons ability to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle but when combined, in my instance at least, make it very challenging. I don't have time for lunch time hour long gym sessions. With my early work starts and evening family requirements my time is very limited and so any training I undertake has to be efficient and productive. I was looking for something that could counter my environmental hazard of sitting for long periods as well as the mental fatigue from both stress from work and my personal life. Conventional gym training worked to a point but was not entirely conducive in its ability to counter the negatives from the scenarios I have mentioned.
With this in mind, four weeks ago I undertook the challenge of joining an online group session of like-minded people using the exercise programme in this book as its cohesive property. This four week period covers Level 1 of Darryl's prescribed programme, with a further two four-week levels comprising levels 2 & 3. I have quite simply been blown away by my progress over this initial four week period.
Day 1 on this programme highlighted to me exactly how detrimental the stressful office environment was to my general health and well being as I struggled on activities I presumed I would be able to manage easily - a 30 minute session based on controlled, relaxed movement. This comprised of simply travelling 5m in a crab walks, duck walks & bear crawls (all movements done as a child), 5 jumping pull-ups and 30 seconds of barefoot walking. I only managed 5 rounds in this 30 minutes and was blowing a gasket. My baseline was set.
Four short weeks later after following this programme I was set for the first day of Level 2. My problem was that other commitments made me miss day 1. So I decided to combine day 1 & day 2 the following morning to test myself and see if I had actually improved as much as I thought I had. The numbers and cold, hard facts don't lie. I began with a 1 mile run as a warm up. This time the movements were over 10-15m each, Kangaroo Jumps had been added, Pullups were for 10 reps not 5, back extensions were added. This time I managed nearly 7 rounds of a circuit between two and three times longer. Not only that but I then had enough energy and power to handle a very tough tabata session straight after then run another 1 mile back to my house. My fitness, energy and mental clarity have all increased considerably in just 4 weeks. I look forward to what the remaining 8 weeks in this programme will have in store for me.
I have been a Personal trainer for many years working with clients in the usual way that we have been told and getting frustrated with the limited results my clients were getting. I thought there must be a better way and looked outside the mainstream advice and found this kind of lifestyle. I made the change and noticed that I not only started to improve my health and fitness but also that of my clients. I investigated further that lead me to buying Paleo Fitness, I connected with it immediately as had always tried to work the body in a "Functional" way, full body movements and body weight exercises but found that the Paleo Fitness really opened my eyes to new ideas and movement patterns that I had not considered before.
The exercise's are broken down and explained concisely with a good selection of progressive images.The selection of workout plans are scaled over three levels of difficulty.
The book not only has a great insight into movement but also introduces the foundation of the Paleo diet and lifestyle. Explaining what foods are compliant with the evolutionary approach to diet and those that are not. The book also has a nice selection of recipes to introduce to your nutritional plan.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is new the Paleo/Primal lifestyle and also those like myself who have been following this lifestyle for a while. It can bring a new element to your fitness regime and give you a whole new reason to train, Fun!
Health and fitness depends on movement, Not just 12 weeks on intense programming to 'get ripped' This book will educate you in one of the best ways to achive life long fitness through fun movement and play. Perfect for beginers to fitness, but there is plenty to challange even the most fit and should challange the mindset of people thinking health and fitness is about going to the gym 4 times a week and using machinces and pumping out hours on the cross trainer.
The paleo diet side is not a detailed in it's explainations and science as something specifically focused on diet. But there is everything you need to understand the concepts, and if you need more info there are plenty of good options out there.
And you don't need to follow the paleo diet to benifit from the exercises, you of course should, but it's not essential :)
