Live Caveman Step 2: Have fun in your body and when you train, train for life.

Jump, climb, walk, run, swim and go barefoot as much as possible. Work harder or easier depending on how your body feels and invest in a pair of Vibram Five Fingers if you don't have caveman-like callouses on your feet. When you exercise, focus on movements that strengthen your entire body like push-ups, pull-ups, hand-stands, squats, and lunges. Use dumbbells and other forms of external resistance to develop a strong core and stable joints. When "flight" wasn't an option, our ancestors would have to "fight" and there are numerous benefits to training in some sort of martial art such as wrestling, boxing, MMA, Muay Thai, Judo, etc.
