The Paleo Diet is often promoted in conjunction with CrossFit, a branded fitness program that emphasizes variety and a combination of strength moves plus aerobic and anaerobic (high-intensity interval) activities. Strength training typically focuses on moving your own body weight, such as with pushups, pullups, and other dynamic movements. Formal weight training with machines or dumbbells is not a big part of most CrossFit/Paleo plans, though this equipment may be used at times.
Workouts tend to be short and very intense, and you will rarely do the same one two days in a row. Variety and challenging your body anew with each workout are key, and you can find “Workouts of the Day” (WOD) on many websites and in CrossFit training resources. In summary, CrossFit aims to to be broad, general, and inclusive, and its “specialty is not specializing.
