Primal 21 Day Challenge: Day 8

Day 8:

Tomorrow we are starting week numero dos! I am thrilled to continue to hear the awesome results by those of you doing the challenge. Keep it up!

For Day 8 you will complete a very short, yet intense, tabata air squat workout. Do you remember the video I showed for our first max reps workout last week showing the squat? Well, it's time to review this movement if you still have questions in order to do Day 8's challenge:)

A tabata workout is usually 8 sets of a specified movement being performed for 20 seconds with 10 seconds of rest in between. It is an amazing workout that you can get done in just minutes! Below is a large group of people performing this tabata style workout, so feel free to do it along with them or you may do it on your own:) Count your total reps and document.


Meal/Snack Ideas:

Breakfast- mixed eggs, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes poured in cupcake pan(s) and baked.

Lunch- find hot dogs/sausage that are antibiotic/nitrite/nitrate free and dab primal approved condiments on top {read those labels if not making your own condiment!} Add a side of greens.

Dinner- a couple nights ago we had a big salad with homemade pickled radishes {never been a fan of radishes, but pickled are delicious!} along with baked chicken and ate remaining fried plantains.


Dessert- have you made/tried coconut milk ice-cream? Literally, just coconut milk and coconut pieces. Check your labels, or better yet, make your own!
