Your workouts

The Primal 9 training programme is split into three phases, each lasting three weeks. You'll start by doing four workouts a week: a push session, a lower body session, a pull session, and a circuits session of Caveman Conditioning.

As you move through the weeks and phases, we'll add in a core session, and your workouts will become progressively tougher to match your increasing fitness and strength levels.

The Centurion

Before you begin the Primal 9 training programme – and at the end of every phase of the plan – you'll do a fitness test: The Centurion. Not only is this a great workout in its own right, it will also allow you to gauge your progress in terms of how your aerobic capacity, stamina and strength are improving, alongside the changes to your physique.

Caveman Conditioning

Every week for all nine weeks of the plan you'll be doing one session of Caveman Conditioning. This is a high intensity circuit of simple body weight movements designed to push you to your limits through quick exercise bursts and minimal rest times. After your Caveman Conditioning you get two days off, so push yourself as hard as you can and focus on the rest day reward just around the corner to get you through.

Your nutrition plan

When it comes to building muscle and burning fat, nothing is more important than what you put into your body. You can storm through every rep and every set of every workout, holding huge weights and with perfect form on every move, but unless you're eating the right things you won't see decent results – and will soon start to feel fatigued and grumpy.

The Primal 9 Nutrition plan keeps things simple, inexpensive and easy-to-follow. You'll be using guidelines, not specific prescribed meals – though we also provide a huge range of recipe options for all your different meals and snacks, too.

Your support squad

As well as social media support and tuition throughout your Primal 9 challenge from Men's Health, Ross Edgley and everyone else taking on the challenge using the hashtag #primal9, we also provide email support throughout your nine-week challenge. Simply send your questions, problems or concerns to and we'll endeavour to come back to you within 24 hours.

To unlock the entire Primal 9 training system and get access to the Men's Health team and Ross Edgley as your personal trainers, simply purchase the entire plan from within the app for £47.

This is your nine-week ticket to total body transformation. Download and start the plan today!

Paying off already

Bought the full version and was a little sceptical whether this app would actually work for me but its already working wonders and not even finished the course yet! Its great how little equipment you need and its really easy to use. My moobs are nearly a thing of the past haha

Worth the money

Wasn't sure about investing after the first free week, but glad to have the full programme and all the extra info. Looks slick and easy to use. Looking forward to seeing some results in the mirror


Great content and so easy to use. Looking forward to getting started and seeing the results materialise (with a bit of effort from me). Thanks for this, great app.
