Skip the Gym and Get Back to the Basics with Paleo Workouts For Dummies®


(HOBOKEN, NJ) November 14, 2013 – The Paleo movement is one of the hottest diet and healthy-eating approaches, as people discover an appealing and sustainable alternative to the restrictive diets that lead to burnout and failed weight loss efforts. It is about using natural foods to achieve great health and a perfect physique. The “Paleo workout” as it has come to be known, is based upon the range of motion that the body used when it had to survive in the wild. It includes exercises like sprinting, clambering on all fours, and lifting heavy objects.  If reintegrated into one’s life as exercise activities, this program leads to optimum fitness and health through the ease, grace, and power of the movements. 

Paleo Workouts For Dummies® (Wiley, 978-1-118-65791-1, November 2103) presents readers with exercises and routines that are heavy on results, but low on equipment investments. By focusing on primal movements, the book is perfect for those currently following a Paleo diet routine and the anti-gym crowd who want a convenient program that can be performed anywhere, anytime. It offers back-to-the-Stone-Age exercises, along with specially designed weight workouts that burn fat, fight disease, and increase energy. Readers will also find vital details on healthy Paleolithic foods that maximize energy levels for the intense workout routines.  

The book also features companion workout videos on Dummies.com. The video content aids readers in mastering Paleo moves and techniques covered in the book.
