Primal Essential Movements

Primal Essential Movements

The Primal Essential Movements (PEM) are a series of exercises designed to maximize your time, generate functional fitness, optimize gene expression, balance your hormones, and sensitize your body to insulin. This sequence of exercises should be performed in 2-3 sets till you are exhausted. Do not exercise to failure, you want to stop an exercise once you begin to lose form. The goal is to get stronger, not injured. Primal essential movements are also a great way to relieve stress.

After doing a set, it is best to wait 3-4 minutes before the next set, this will maximize muscle and strength gains. You will also be fully recovered when going into your next set of exercises. I prefer to not start a second PEM set completely exhausted, wheezing, and coughing. Feel free to do the following exercises in whatever order work best for you.
