Ok, so surviving a disaster is a LOT like what you’d imagine evading a horde of zombies would be like in an apocalypse, wouldn’t you say?
I mean think about it…
- You’ll most likely need to travel long distances on foot (to a survival retreat or to forage for supplies)
- You may have to outrun and evade “enemy” looters and gangs of opportunists
- Even just surviving the daily stress and physical requirements of self-reliance will take its toll on your body
That means that if you’re serious about outlasting those around you, then YOU need to be prepared for the same types of threats as the Zombieland survivors, and remember…
Zombieland Rule #1: The Fatties Will Die First
All you have to do is glance around your local shopping center and you can see that our society has a serious weight problem, right?
Well these are the same people who will be the “walking dead” in a collapse…
…gasping for breath on the side of the road…
…hobbling through FEMA camps waiting for their daily scoop of rice…
…and easy targets for the “wolves” among the “sheep”.
You do NOT want to be that person!
Now I’m not saying you have to be a Navy SEAL or have “6-pack abs”.
But the fact is, your physical condition is probably one of your weakest survival links if you’re like most people so here are…
3 Survival Fitness Tips To Avoid Being
Zombie Food In A Collapse
Here are 3 “military fitness tips” from my military-style fitness system that you can put to use right away in whatever program you follow…
1. Bodyweight works best
You don’t need a gym to get a great body.
In fact, bodyweight exercises (like squats, push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups and others) stimulate more muscle fibers than any other style of training – even using weights!
And since your body’s muscle is its “fatburning engine”, more muscle fiber stimulate means you burn more bodyfat all day and all night.
2. Train as early as possible
In the military, troops exercise first thing in the morning – and for a good reason…
Your metabolism speeds up during the day and slows down at night before you go to bed.
By exercising earlier in the day, you give a “turbo boost” to your metabolism to melt away even more bodyfat throughout the day – with no extra effort on your part!
3. Never give up your “guilty foods”
This goes against what you may think, but the fact is, most diet plans fail because they’re too restrictive.
Soldiers practically live on pizza and beer yet stay in amazing shape because they stay active and eat right for most of their meals.
When you give up your favorite foods, you actually want them even more… until the desire is too great and you eat a bucket of ice cream and give up.
The secret is to know WHEN to eat these foods so they don’t sabotage your results.
For example, immediately after a serious workout, your muscles actually NEED sugar and by consuming sugary food right after exercise can help stimulate hormones that build muscle while burning bodyfat at the same time.
Look, if the most exercise you get each day is walking from your computer to the coffeemaker and back again, you could be in for a serious problem when things actually do go south out there.
You’re family wil be counting on you to protect them and YOU will be the one huffing and puffing on the side of the road, too out-of-shape to make the trek to safety when your vehicle breaks down.
Of course there are a lot of reasons you may be stuck in a never-ending state of blubberness…
Maybe you’re too busy and don’t have time to exercise?
Perhaps you’ve tried in the past to lose the belly and just gained it all back?
Or maybe there are so many idiotic diet plans and exercise gizmos out there that you don’t know where to start?
Well, when it comes to getting fit for survival, I’ve always fallen back on my military roots.
In fact, as a “Master Fitness Trainer” and “Weight Control NCOIC” for the units I was assigned to in the Army, I discovered several advanced tips that actually made getting in shape both FASTER and FUN at the same time.
And you don’t have to be some Navy SEAL to do the workouts (in fact, you can check out the before & after photos of some everyday Joe’s (and Jane’s) who have used these simple techniques here…).
One of the reasons my system works so well is because it DOESN’T require you to go on that 4-letter word “d-i-e-t” and give up your guilty foods.
And the exercise program is designed to work WITH your survival needs and only takes as little as 30 minutes, just 3 days a week.
If you can’t manage even this much effort, then I’m afraid you’re pretty much a goner when the sh*t hits the fan my friend.
(Sorry – just being honest. :-))
Think about it this way…
Would you practice all of your firearms training skills to be faster and more accurate… and then not clean your gun and leave it out in the rain?
Of course not.
Then why would you practice all of these survival skills and gather all this gear and not take care of the body that’s going to have to USE those skill when your family is most counting on you?
Doesn’t make sense, right?
The question is whether you’ll continue to treat your guns better than your own body.
