Minimalist Exercise

Not Darrin Carlson

Darrin Carlson on March 23, 2012, shared his ideas on the minimal amount of exercise and equipment needed to achieve reasonable fitness benefits.

Public health authorities for years have recommended physical activity in the range of 150 minutes a week.  That ain’t gonna happen for most folks.  Darrin says “Two hours a week will work for most people….”

Jonathan BailorChris Highcock, and others suggest 30-60 minutes a week may be enough.  Even Darrin admits as much, for the super-dedicated.

Consider the Five Failings of Paleo

Darrin Carlson over at Lean, Mean, Virile Machine has a thought-provoking piece entitled The Five Failings of Paleo.  It’s about the history of the modern paleo diet movement.  Despite the title, it’s pro-paleo, even if it’s not your version of paleo.

PS: When I write “paleo,” you can subsitute Paleolithic, caveman, Stone Age, or Old Stone Age.
