A beginner wilderness workout for your survivalist needs

So let’s get real for a second: the apocalypse is coming and we need to be prepared. When that time comes we’re going to need strength. We’re going to need to be fit so we can outrun the zombies, the people  you want the zombies to catch in lieu of catching you, and to build the new town with your favorite people (and a couple of shady people you met on the street that have skills you might need).

This is the first workout I’m building in a Pinterest pinnable format (roll your mouse over the image and you’ll see a Pinterest icon in the top left corner) so you can save it for the next time you need to get outside for a workout and have no equipment handy. While the workout is geared toward beginners with basic movements and only body weight, you experienced fitties can up the ante in sets or by modifying the exercises for increased difficulty.

I  currently have the luxury of living on nine acres of mountain so the wilderness available was more abundant for me that it might be for you but do your best to find similar substitutes when needed.

The best part of me providing these new photo workouts to you is that you get to learn more about how wonky I am. I have a lot of weirds thanks to the way my body naturally exists so pay more attention to my cues than my pictures when noted.

I mean, not that my pictures aren’t good. They’re good. I swear. I’m just saying… do better than me if you aren’t as derpy as me. Get lower. Be straighter. I believe in you.

Oh and in case you’re wondering: no I don’t do Crossfit and those awesome socks don’t serve a purpose. I just love awesome socks.

I decided to become a personal trainer after I had dropped out of college, quit drinking (for a while,… Continue Reading

It’s like geek Christmas
