Your legs need a break from lifting today.  Been hitting them pretty hard this week.  Went at the fronts of your legs on Monday & at the backs of them yesterday.  Let's run it off today. 

You are not in a hurry today.  Don't time this one.  Just stay busy and get it done. 

It is best to do the exercises in the order they are written today.  Strict chinups require a lot of input from the biceps.  If you've done the biceps curls first, your chins will suffer and you won't get all of the benefit gained from this workout.  Same is true of the push combo. 


What is our position on the "Paleo" diet(s)? 

We are confused by them.  The more we try to understand these extremely popular (trendy?) methods, the less clear they become to us.  We've explored "Paleo" eating extensively.  It doesn't seem to pan-out scientifically for many of the reasons outlined in the video below, plus many other reasons. 

Debunking the Paleo Diet - Christina Warinner at TEDxOU

However ...

We support any eating program that leads to optimal health of the participant.  We've known many who've thrived on certain "Paleo" methods of eating.  We've also known many who haven't.  We suggest trying one of the "Paleo" methods AFTER more sensible options have failed you. 

Our biggest concern with the purveyors of "Paleo" eating has little to do with whether, or not, equatorial paleo man ate similarly to arctic paleo man. This arguement, although stimlulating, seems way less troublesome than assertions that "Paleo" methods are useful/suitable/sustainable for EVERYONE - ALL THE TIME.

It isn't reasonable to imagine that any ONE method of eating will serve each of us optimally - ALL THE TIME.   

GPP doesn't think it is reasonable to imagine that any ONE method of eating would serve ANYONE optimally throughout the entire period of their own life time.  It seems more sensible to expect our nutritional needs to change over time, as our bodies and lifestyles also change.
