  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I began prepping around 8 years ago. I have accomplished quite a bit. Enough food and water supply to sustain my family of 7 for over a year. Enough guns and ammo to arm my immediate family, and probably my extended family as well. And much more. Also in those 8 years, I've managed to store...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just a friendly reminder and some encouragement: I've seen a lot of people here say that they could be in better physical shape. I know how that is! And most of us can probably relate to some degree. I was sitting on my couch a few months ago and exercise crossed my mind (I hadn't been...

    So my wife and I started running recently after realizing we've both gained about 15lbs in the past 12mo. We also hike pretty regularly when the weather is nice. So here's the thing, we've only recently (today) gotten to the point of running 2 miles, and when we finished I thought to myself "if...

    I am a 16 year old boy that has been interested in fitness and prepping for a long time. I am in great physical shape and am wondering what would be better to have. Explosive power, powerful lifting, sprints and size. Or smaller frame, endurance runs, and not as much explosive power. I...

    I'm very curious to see what the overall consensus in this forum is when it comes to regular physical training as part of your "prepping" efforts. I've seen numerous so called "preppers" who have great food and water stores, a stockpile of firearms and ammunition, all of the fanciest perimeter...

    ne of the most ignored, or possibly least talked about components of survival is fitness. I used to be skinny, weak, and unable to do more than 10 pushups without struggling, now I can do 60+, run 4 miles in under 30 minutes and do 15 pull ups at once. People need to put more emphasis on fitness...

    When I was about 13-14 years old I was skinny, weak, and had just gotten the crap beat out of me at school. Jumped from behind outside of the locker rooms. That was in the middle of 8th grade. The school wanted to suspend me for just being involved in a fight. I didn't even defend myself. My...

    I need some help with muscle gaining. I want to gain some more muscle in my thighs. My thighs currently are a bit large, and I'm afraid to do a lot of muscular exercises because I have patellofemoral pain syndrome in my knees. My foot doesn't have a curve, which makes it very flat. So every...
