Scott Sonnon’s new Primal Stress program is a comprehensive, plug-and-play bodyweight training program that will help you develop a high standard of fitness by burning stubborn fat, building functional muscle, injury-proofing your body, and improving your conditioning level using a variety of movement skills and training protocols that were specifically created to build resiliency and toughness while fostering a sense of strength and empowerment.
I’ve spent the last week looking over the materials of Scott Sonnon’s new Primal Stress program. My hope was to gather enough information and insight to bring you a comprehensive product review that will help you decide whether or not this program would be a good fit for you, your goals, and circumstances.
I quickly discovered that Primal Stress encompasses far more than I originally expected, and includes far more educational material than any of Sonnon’s previous releases. Not only is it massive in scope (over 18 hours of video footage and over 500 pages of reading material); it’s also extremely deep. Naturally, one week is not nearly enough time to go over it all. And that’s why this isn’t going to be so much of a comprehensive product review as it will be a brief analysis based on my first impressions.
So, today, I’m not going to give you the point-by-point pro’s and con’s like I usually do in my other product reviews. The reason being that this program is much the same as Sonnon’s past product releases – only better – and I’d just be rehashing points I’ve made again and again in the past.
First things first, I’ve been anticipating this program’s release since Scott told me about it privately last year. I could tell he was very excited about this program because it would be different from his other work.
I’ve reviewed almost all of Sonnon’s programs that have been released since 2006 (and a handful prior to that). Having said that, I’ll be up front and say that it is my opinion that this is absolutely Scott Sonnon’s best work to date – by far. And it’s not just because the quality of information that he’s bringing or how well it’s packaged. It’s because this program has a little something called heart. It’s obvious upon first opening the manual that Scott truly poured his heart into this one, and he shares so much of himself in this distillation of his work.
It’s hard for me to describe exactly how this has impacted the product as a whole, but I think anyone who actually uses this program will know exactly what I mean. Suffice to say, this is not just another workout program. What Scott has done with Primal Stress is nothing short of revolutionary. This is a collection of work that truly matters and is greatly needed in our day and age.
What You Get + Brief Notes on the Pros and Cons
Primal Stress is truly a new evolution of training programs, and that’s certainly been the trend with most of Sonnon’s releases – each one a little better and more refined than the last one. So, if you’re already familiar with any of Sonnon’s past programs – in particular, his more recent TACFIT programs – then you already have a general idea of what to expect in terms of packaging (PDF manuals, progress tracking charts, instructional and workout follow-along videos, audio/video/PDF bonuses, etc.). And if you don’t, then just check out some of my past product reviews to get an idea.
Essentially, all of high points and advantages of Sonnon’s recent product releases also apply to the Primal Stress program. In other words, the best features and benefits from programs like TACFIT Commando, TACFIT Warrior, Tactical Gymnastics, etc. are all present in Primal Stress, too. Let me spell some of them out for you…
It’s a bodyweight training program that has different levels of difficulty for beginners to advanced trainees. The workouts are challenging, yet manageable because they are customizable to your current conditioning level. The workouts are brief, yet intense, and the overall training system is very balanced. That is, there is a complementary blend of high intensity and low intensity training – hard-style and soft-style. There are different training schedules to choose from to align the program with what’s best for your schedule and time availability. The progress tracking guides are extensive and user-friendly. This program is 100% plug and play – no planning or guesswork involved. Plus, the whole system is action-oriented so you have no excuse not to succeed.
Did you get all that? Yeah, good stuff, huh?
If you’d like to burn fat, build muscle, improve your conditioning and health, and completely transform your life then you absolutely must check out the Primal Stress special offer:
Like I said, Primal Stress takes the best of all of Sonnon’s past product releases and puts it into a new-and-improved comprehensive physical training system.
As is typical with CST and TACFIT programs, there are some quirks, too. Specifically, some of the video footage isn’t of the highest caliber. Don’t get me wrong because the instruction is there and it’s solid, but the overall video quality is so-so with background chatter, distracting sound effects during follow-along videos, wind interference, etc. If you’re looking for a Hollywood production, then look elsewhere. But honestly, I can’t even really consider this a mark off because anyone who truly uses this program won’t think twice about those things. They just don’t matter one bit.
I will mention one specific feature that is unique about Primal Stress and sets it apart from most of Scott’s previous programs. Primal Stress includes all six TACFIT training protocols. That is, there are six different kinds of intensity workouts. You won’t just be using one training protocol like most of Sonnon’s past releases (e.g. the 20/10×8 protocol that was used in TACFIT Commando, TACFIT Warrior, etc.). Primal Stress uses six different training protocols, which I think is a huge advantage because it will help you train different energy systems and keep the workouts interesting. More variety is always a big advantage in my book, and you’ll get plenty of it in Primal Stress.
But here’s the thing. This is so much more than just a physical training program. This is truly a lifestyle transformation system, and it’s been crafted in a way that transformation is inevitable – if you follow the program. I know it sounds cheesy – like we should all sit in a circle, hold hands, and talk about our goals in life. But that’s not what this is about at all. It’s very clear that Scott is trying to do much more than just transform people’s bodies. He wants to change lives through empowerment. And empowerment is exactly what you’ll nurture by using Primal Stress, by pouring your heart into a program that has had so much heart put into it already. This man is after you!
Program Benefits and Value
So, what can all this great stuff do for you? What kind of benefits can you expect to receive from putting your faith, money, time, and effort into this program? Well, it practically goes without saying that you’ll burn bodyfat and build lean muscle (aka go muscle, not show muscle). You’ll develop total body fitness – strength, power, endurance – you name it. The bottom line is that you’ll build a stronger, more resilient, more powerful body that is practically injury-proof. You’ll get that hard body physique that so many people desire, while also securing all the normal health and fitness benefits that an exercise program offers. That’s why it’s called health-first fitness.
But beyond that, you will set yourself on a path towards empowerment through the development of resiliency and toughness. I hope I don’t have to tell you what kind of lifestyle implications this could have. Suffice to say, everything about the way you live your life changes when you become empowered. All your hopes, dreams, and goals for yourself suddenly seem achievable. But more importantly, you believe that you – YOU – can do it. Not just that it’s possible, but that you CAN and WILL do it. Simply put, empowerment inspires faith in yourself, and faith is the driving force to positive lifestyle change.
Now, all that “change your life” stuff aside, this is an extremely high value for your money – by far, the highest value of any of Scott’s past product releases (even without the extra bonuses). He could be charging so much more for this, but I know Scott likes to over-deliver on his promises and make his programs accessible to as many people as possible. So it goes without saying that if you actually use this program, it will be worth many times the money you spend on it – even if you miss the introductory sale price.
The Bottom Line
This is hands-down, the single-best bodyweight training program available today, and I’ve tried almost all of them! So, I don’t care who you are. If you are willing to work hard to burn fat, build muscle, and improve your basic conditioning, AND you want a bodyweight training program that can be customized to your individual needs and circumstances, AND you want to be told exactly what to do every single day, then Primal Stress was created for you. The bottom line is that if you have a desire to dramatically transform your health, fitness, and your quality of life, then you need to buy Primal Stress today. Pick up your copy at the link below…
And if you can only buy one of Scott’s CST or TACFIT program, and you’re trying to decide which one, make it the Primal Stress program – not just because it contains a TON of material and programs to work through for a ridiculously low price, but also because it’s the deepest and most sophisticated work that Scott has ever published before. This is the real deal, folks. You simply can’t go wrong.
Now, before I send you off to check out the program for yourself, I must warn you: don’t go into this all carefree and happy-go-lucky. This is a serious program for serious people. There are no wannabes here, and it’s not going to be easy. In fact, it will take you right to the edge of your potential (and no further if you follow the program). And you need to be mentally ready for that going into it. A half-hearted effort won’t cut it. So, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Also, be prepared to do some deep introspection the moment you start going through the program manual and especially the bonus materials. I’d say you’re getting a great deal even if you’re only planning to use this for the physical benefits of training. However, you’ll be missing the whole point of the program. There’s a detailed blueprint for total lifestyle transformation inside this system, and that’s where the true value of Primal Stress lies. Now, all that said, that doesn’t mean that Primal Stress is the right product for everybody (hey, we’re all at different stages, right?), which is why you need to see it for yourself.
So, I hope this brief review gave you at least enough information to make up your mind about whether Primal Stress is right for you. I’ll try to get a more comprehensive product review published at some point in the future, but I wanted to get this quickie up during the special sale. Please let me know if you have any questions or want some info from a man on the inside.
So, what are you waiting for? Go forth and develop your resiliency and toughness through the conduit of the Primal Stress program. You’ll learn more about what that really means at the official site and in the product materials themselves…
