Let’s start by dispelling the misconception that caveman workout programs are limited to brutes hauling huge tires across open fields.
Not only are cavemen workouts suitable for women, they can also bring about some phenomenal results. For instance, you can still stay lean while gaining incredible strength and muscle tone.
Fast and Furious Fitness
Women will certainly appreciate how quickly caveman workouts lead to results. No more jogging for an hour at a moderate intensity and seeing a very modest calorie burn. A caveman workout will get your heart rate up quickly and keep it there for the duration of the exercise session. This means more gains in shorter periods of time.
The biggest thing to remember when you’re doing a caveman workout is to get out of your comfort zone. According to Women’s Health, you will increase your metabolic rate from always pushing your body and not allowing your routine to grow stagnant.
It’s not One Single Workout
Caveman workouts are a mindset more than a restricted exercise plan. Your goal is to go back to basics in order to get in the best shape of your life. And you can mix up the moves that you do.
For instance, Muscle and Fitness, suggests performing exercises such as running, jumping rope, squats and pull-ups at a fast pace for as long as possible. For strength training, you can do a routine that includes using a medicine ball to fly through reps performing push-ups, overhead presses and lifts.
It’s not All about Bulky Muscles
Women who want to cut a feminine figure and not lose all of their curves can still do a caveman workout and get results. Caveman workouts burn loads of calories, which can be very helpful to women who want to lose weight.
Heavy rope training and flipping airplane tires are going to give you a full body workout and reduce fat in the process. If you’re worried about the bulk, cut out the bells and whistles and focus more on the basics such as sprinting, climbing and jumping.
Above all else, caveman workouts are supposed to remind us to be active. Instead of using your downtime to catch up on your DVR shows, get outside and move. Women will be pleased with the phenomenal improvements to their bodies.

CAVEMENWORLD’s independent, investigative journalism and graphics take a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure.
