Survival Fitness: Are you fit enough to survive civil unrest?
Host: Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live”
Times of civil unrest are truly tests of survival of the fittest. Most of us don’t like to acknowledge this, because fitness hasn’t been a top priority in a while. Perhaps we’re older and have some aches and pains. Or, perhaps we are already juggling kids, spouse, a job, aging parents, and all of our other prepping activities- when is there even time to think about fitness, let alone work out?
In this episode, we’re going to be talking with my friend, “Lute”. Once a marine, always a marine, Lute has also been a private civilian contractor, provided close security, and taught classes in self-defense, tactical movement, and long-distance marksmanship. Lute is also a power lifter with a mission to help others get more fit, and incorporate fitness into their emergency preps.
Tonight, we will be discussing some of the realities civil unrest can bring, and what type of physical endurance the average person will need to survive in such a situation. This isn’t about how much weight can you lift in the gym, but can you walk or hike for hours? How far? Can you do so with a pack on your back? What about if you were traveling with a child? Could you carry them in order to keep moving? Can you run when necessary? Can you physically defend yourself?
No matter what your current level of fitness may be, there are steps you can take to improve your fitness level incrementally. There are free programs like Couch to 5K (C25K) and low cost online services like Live Exercise take away all time, access, fitness level, and expense excuses. Drawing upon Lute’s real life experiences working in places in the midst of civil unrest, tonight’s show should be both a wake up call and inspiration to make the changes necessary to be fit for survival.
