If you aren’t careful you can go completely crazy with all these radical fitness trends. From the rep, till you die methods in CrossFit to the med ball balancing acts that some people do in the gym, it can all be a bit much.
I think this emphasis on radical fitness is what turns many people off.
Funny enough, if you look to the most elite fighting forces on the planet you find that they rarely get into things like CrossFit and these types of radical training. The boot camps are certainly straight forward and that goes a long way.
If you are on the way towards taking the reigns on your won fitness level, you might want to consider some basic operators workouts, some army workouts, some military boot camp style fitness. There is a reason its the starting point for the best of the best.
Let’s look at three effective methods that all militaries utilize.
For many preppers, this should be a no brainer.
In your early days of training hit the road for about 1.5 miles. You can up it as much as you like from there.
For everyone who has ever complained about not being able to get to the gym or not being able to afford a membership, these exercises are for you!
From push-ups to pull-ups and even burpees, you can get a brutal workout in 30 minutes with the right collection of these.
- Pull-ups 8-12 reps

Then there is roadwork. Boxes and military alike have long touted the effectiveness of running. Find the right mileage for you and take it to em’!
