Moving Like Traditional Man
By Guest Blogger Paula Jager CSCS
Fossilized remains implicate that “Grok” had a fair amount of muscle on his body. The human fossils evince higher levels of mineral bone density than our modern counterparts. Strong, dense bones are hallmarks of physically active people engaged in weight bearing exercises. The science is very clear on this; bones are living organs which respond to stimuli, much like muscle does. Exerting oneself and lifting weights (barbells or fallen game) tells your body to build stronger ones.

I agree. Great post! Can't wait to read more in the next segment of this series!
@Paula…100% AGREE! Great post!
I try to walk as much as possible and I think I'm healthy enough. Maybe if ate like traditional men I'd need to move much more. I'm ok with moderate eating and moderate work out!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend Sarah!
There are many excellent paths on the journey to health and fitness. Both the Chek Institute and CrossFit deserve a great deal of respect. However, meeting the “specific needs” of a client as well as determining their "level of fitness" is more a product of the knowledge, expertise and experience of the “personal trainer”, “coach” or "holistic lifestyle coach" rather than the program itself.
The important thing is to find the right fit for you.
Until I busted my foot I did shovelglove. To this day my sledgehammer calls out to me in lonliness. I do miss it but since simply standing (let alone movement) requires concious thought I am not able to put in the intensity and remain standing. I look forward to more from this series that I may be able to adapt to my needs.
@Betsy – you should SERIOUSLY reconsider jumping into CrossFit, IMHO. I would HIGHLY recommend you find a CHEK practitioner. The Chek Institute is where my wife and I have been certified as Holistic Lifestyle Coaches – she is also a personal trainer. Paul Chek also recommends the traditional diet and functional training – look on Amazon for his book "How To Eat, Move, and Be Healthy" BUT your program needs to be tailored to your specific needs not just your "fitness level" as CrossFit recommends. Goto http://www.chekinstitute.com or chekconnect.com to find a practitioner. Just my 2 cents as i, myself, am on a lifelong journey of health and vitality just like you! best,
Makes me want to go home and work out. I think I might get to it after the kids go to bed
Thanks for starting this series. I have been doing more research on exercise since I want to lose some weight but I also don't want to overload my adrenal system by overdoing it. So far my best resource has been Mark's Daily Apple and other Primal lifestyle sites. Great to have another perspective.
Looking forward to the next installment. I just started doing CrossFit a couple of weeks ago. "Doing" may not be the right word; at 59 and being way out of shape, I'm stumbling through the beginner's class, lol. But I do love it!
