My Awesome Experience With Primal Play

Last night I had an amazing opportunity to be involved in a Primal Play group meet up. What is Primal Play? Well the methodology that author of Paleo Fitness Darryl Edwards (@fitnessexplorer) uses is that it is about making activity fun, effective and engaging while getting healthier, fitter and stronger in the process. Darryl doesn't call the programs that appear in his book workouts but "playouts."

We got the XSUP SAC out during breaks in the racing at the recent Naish N1sco race event that happened here in Canberra recently (an awesome event, some good photos of me in action and I managed to take the overall honours for the Men's division).
