  1. Coronavirus
    There may already be a thread on this and if there is, will the mods please merge. That said, in light of all the concerns with shelter in place, curfews, mandatory self-quarantine if you are sick or just came back from Walmart, what have you; how are YOU planning to keep physically fit? We...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Guys and gals, springtime is almost upon us. Before we know it the weather will be warm enough to go hiking, fishing, camping... etc. Some people do that kind of stuff year round, so its no big deal to them. I am working on getting the legs active after having to stay inside from this...
  3. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    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...
  4. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I thought I'd create a thread where we can discuss various unintended consequences of suddenly being forced to live on more manual labor. It's easy to say that people will just have to hike up their skirts, but in reality, blistered feet and lowered immune systems will be serious obstacles...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have been on a life changing health kick for the last couple of months. It all stemmed from doing research for a documentary I have been working on. I was researching some different filming techniques and was studying a documentary on healthy living. This particular documentary was about a guy...

  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I have been trying to reduce the size of my OBSP (on body survival pouch) Aka pot belly and decided to add my bob to my treadmill work. Boy you know pretty fast just how heavy your bob is puffing along in the 4th mile at 5% grade. If anything I think the added weight is giving me a better...
  8. Non-Lethal Weapons & Self Defense
    I have noticed locally and on places like youtube that most people who prep are simply unfit. I just want to put this out there. That I feel like all the prepping in the world is'nt gonna mean much if you can't run a mile or two. Or hold your own in an unarmed fight. I have guns, knives...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've seen so many posts here about the needs of water, food and safety, but not so much about health issues. One has to be healthy to withstand major disasters when the insfastructure fails. The very old and sick are going to be doomed. The young and fit will of course have a huge advantage...
  10. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    One of the keys to weight lose - or at the very least, weight management - is not living a sedentary lifestyle. This means you do not sit around all day. Most health experts tell us to keep moving, do not spend too much time sitting in front of the TV or playing video games. This seems like...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've noticed that a lot of people will go to extremes to prepare for SHTF and completely ignore the fact they are out of shape and wouldn't last a day in a survival situation. What good is all your gear and supplies if you can not lug it 3 miles up and over a mountain range? We hope & pray...
