The year is almost over, which means millions of people are going to try to lose weight and get in better shape over the next few months. Sadly, most of them will fail. But if you’re a prepper, you can’t afford to fail at this. I believe physical fitness is one of the most important things to have during a disaster.
You don’t have to be a marathon runner, a bodybuilder, or even skinny, but you at least need to have the ability to go on a long hike while carrying a heavy bag (bugging out). Or the ability to carry heavy objects back and forth for several hours (clearing debris). Or the ability to run short distances very quickly (escaping danger).
Exercising is just one of many things preppers often don’t do enough. There are several others, and that is the topic of this article by Beans Bullets Bandages And You. I only recently discovered this blog, and it’s really good. It’s managed by a husband and wife (Salty and Spice) and a few friends and family members.
Many of their articles (including this one) are accompanied by their podcast which comes out every week or so and is usually about 30 minutes. To see their full list of things preppers don’t do enough and hear their thoughts on them, follow the link below.
