The first 15 days of the "Onnit Primal Challenge" have been completed using the guidelines above for the number of reps performed each day for each exercise. As mentioned in a previous post, the approach to this challenge is a little different from the recommended "three days a week for five weeks" method — I only have 4 weeks.
Break out your TI-83 calculators because we're about to go through a wild ride of unrelenting mathematics.
Simple multiplication will bring you to a total 15 workouts (3 per week x 5 weeks); divide the number of days I have to complete this challenge into the total number of workouts (30 days ÷ 15 workouts); and we're left with a workout every other day in which to get all the required workouts finished.
The Workout Experience Thus Far
As most of you know I wasn't very happy the first day when I had to max out the number of repetitions for each of the listed exercises. I was tired, out of breath, and weak.
The instructor in the video — the smug bastard that he is — is gracefully jumping around like he just received a blood transfusion from a unicorn. Why not me!?
I can thankfully say that the workouts haven't left me as sore as your mom after a fisting contest like they did on the first day. However, I'm still out of breath a lot as more reps are added to each and every workout; sometimes even having to pause for a few seconds while in the middle of rows, pushups, and most definitely burpees.
