Let’s get started! For this first Primal Survivor Routine (PSR #1), I want to show you a simple full body workout for beginners using only bodyweight exercises. It’s a circuit workout which means you can do 1 to 5 loops depending on your level and available time. Doing this workout 2 to 3 times a week for a few weeks should bring back your body into shape and allow you to go on with hard workouts.
This is a high intensity workout since minimum rest is taken through the circuit, meaning that you will improve your cardio. The exercises for this workout will also strengthen your muscles and joints and prepare you for when the SHTF!
- Workout : PSW 1
- Duration : 10 to 50 minutes depending on the number of times you can do the circuit

Warm up – 5 minutes
Warming up is very important, specially if you’re just starting out. The best way to warm up is to run for a few minutes :
- Running or rope jumping for 2 minutes
- Jumping Jack for 2 minutes
Then moves all the parts of your body in all direction :
- Neck Rotation
- Shoulder Circles
- Elbow flexion/extension
- Wrist rotation
- Hip circles
- Knee circles
If you are not feeling warmed up enough, run or jump for a few more minutes.
For the first few times, just do one round. When your body starts to get used to the workout, you can add 1 or 2 more rounds, but don’t go over 5.
