    Default How INCREDIBLE does Primal Move look?!

    I'll be honest here people--probably a year ago I would have laughed at Primal Move: that is how ingorant I was. But after a year of Convict Conditioning I began to look at bodyweight in a new way. I began to grow up.

    The last couple of months I have been seeing more and more "crawling" exercises becoming popular in routines. I began to explore these and found they work really, really well as a missing link between my ordered, progressive CC strength work and "movement" generally.

    Then I saw Primal Move. I have just been blown away by this video clip, and will sign up as soon as circumstances allow. Seriously, if you haven't seen the vid on this page, check it out:

    It amazes me how Dragon Door and John Du Cane always seem to be right ahead of the curve on strength and conditioning trends. Like everyone else I am sorry Pavel is leaving, but I am SO excited about what these guys have round the corner! It just seems to be getting better and better.

    Anyone else really excited by the Primal Move system...?

    I just watched the video on the link you put up. Primal Move looks AWESOME! It looks like a ton of fun and really does mimick the movements of what (in my mind) a primimal being would move like.

    Probably any kind of "free form" dancing (I like bboying for this) will do. But then tough guys don't dance, do they? Another possibility: as Walter Dorey says in effect in his blog, some sort of fairly varied "real life" manual labour (maybe even housework (!) or other work around the house) is as good an integrative device as any.

    It IS incredible - and fun. Did you see the interview with Peter Lakatos? http://www.dragondoor.com/dragon_doo...f_primal_move/

    It's already helped me move better in a relatively short period of time, I'm looking forward to long term adaptations. It's a really good fit with CC and/or kettlebells.

    Thumbs up Great interview great course

    Hi all,

    I thought that Peter's interview was very insightful. And great video footage of the Seniors and Masters.

    Primal Move is a fantastic course. For those who want to enjoy movement again.

    Default Not sure what it looks like but

    if it helps people move better than its good? But do we really need to learn how move "primally"? No one here's done animal movement warm up drills in BJJ class? Here's 12 powerful animal drills for free in a video that's 3 yrs old. jiujitsubrotherhood.com/2009/01/brazilian-jiu-jitsu-training-animals/ You could have made them up by watching Animal Planet. Smacks of Kool Aid to me. DD going down hill/ trying to make a buck of anything?

    Well, for what its worth, I got a whole lot out of it and really have enjoyed sharing it with my clients, most of who wouldn't feel comfortable or have an interest in BJJ. There's a whole lot to this particular system. It's great to be skeptical of course, and different systems work for different people too. Personally, I've had a blast and already gotten some fantastic movement results with Primal Move, being FMS based, I feel that it has given my CK-FMS knowledge even greater value, the correctives inherent with PM are a lot more fun for my clients, and I hate to admit this, but MUCH easier for me to remember on the go as an instructor.
