Many people say they have been successful in converting to a Paleo diet. But what does that mean, exactly? And how does a fitness routine fit with this new eating style? Paleo Fitness answers these questions and more.
First, this book explains why the Paleo diet is superior to the traditional diet. Then it lists allowed and non-allowed foods, along with explanations. A sample menu and several tempting recipes are also provided. A three level workout routine is then given in the form of charts showing each exercise and its corresponding page number. The largest section is the descriptions and pictures of these unique exercises.
Unlike traditional workouts, Paleo fitness is designed to work out the total body, not just isolated muscle groups. You won’t find these exercises in the gym, and they don’t use traditional weights or machines. Instead you’ll find yourself crawling on the floor in crab walk or crocodile walk, jumping like a rabbit, hanging from a bar, or going through the motions of tossing an object. These exercises are created from nature, and work the body the way a caveman might have exercised through daily living.
If you’re bored with your traditional workout and you’re ready to try something more natural, Paleo Fitness might be just what you’re looking for. I highly recommend it.
