I'm Darryl Edwards (aka The Fitness Explorer), founder of Primal Play, a paleo nutritionist and author of the books Paleo from A to Z and Paleo Fitness based in London, England. This blog documents my experiences with a Paleo lifestyle that has made me fitter and healthier in my forties than ever before. I am a contributor to Paleo Magazine and presenter at various symposiums globally such as Paleo:f(x), PrimalCon, AHS (Ancestral Health Symposium), Thr1ve.Me, and other events globally. I am also founder of the first Paleo conference in Europe, HEALTH Unplugged which took place for the 3rd year running in Autumn 2016.

Performs as many repetitions as possible of the following exercises without pausing. For example if you can perform 27 Push-Ups but have to stop even momentarily at 28 then use 27 as your total.
Make a note of the total and test yourself on a regular basis say every couple of months to monitor progress and to use as a motivational tool.
Rest for 1-2 minutes between each exercise.
Shoulder Presses (10kg olympic bar for women, 20kg olympic bar for men)
