New Ways To Get In Shape For Prepping

get in shape

If you’re ready to finally get in shape and get ready to help your body prepare for an SHTF situation, you’re in the right spot.

 

New Year’s Day has come and gone, and here we are ending our second week of 2018.

So, naturally, I have just one question…

How many resolutions have you broken since the start of the new year?

Ok, let’s be honest – most New Year’s resolutions are overrated.

However, there’s one that isn’t – especially when it comes to your survival.

And that’s the resolution to get healthy and fit.

Losing weight is often one of the hardest things a person can do. It takes discipline, planning, time, energy, and motivation.

Not to mention, most people give up after a week or two because “it’s just not worth it.”

However, in an SHTF situation, you can bet you’re going to be pushing your body to the limits. And if you don’t make the decision to get healthy now, you’re going to be regretting it (and putting your life at stake) when an emergency occurs.

You don’t have to become the next American Gladiator, and there’s no need to become a body builder. Heck, you don’t even need a six-pack.

The point is to get healthier and fitter than you currently are, so that you can do more and survive longer when the time comes.

And the good news is you don’t have to get on some crazy workout regimen to do it, either.

In fact, by doing the exercises that give you the most “bang for your buck,” these simple workouts can add up to big results. And you can do it all from the comfort of your home.

You’d better light that fire underneath you, because I’m going to show you some…

New Ways To Get In Shape For Prepping

It doesn’t take a genius to lose weight and get fit – it just takes figuring out which exercises are going to be the most effective in as little time as possible.

Here are a few exercises that’ll help you get stronger and lose weight the fastest:

Resistance Bands

Resistance exercises are some of the most important things you can do for your health. Not only do these increase your strength and help you build muscle (which helps you burn fat faster), but they also vastly improve your flexibility, and loosen up muscles that are tight and restricting your movement.

And it’s all done with the use of a simple band.

Resistance bands  help you activate, sculpt and tone your abs, butt, and core. These not only help you look slimmer and fitter, but they also work wonders for your balance and posture.

Not to mention, stretching with resistance bands help you to increase your range of motion, thereby increasing your flexibility and helping you avoid injury. With every passing day, these bands help you feel younger, as your body will be moving and bending in ways it hasn’t been able to for years.

Plus, since the bands are extremely stretchy and made out of comfortable, snap-resistant and super durable elastic latex, this makes them a breeze to use.

You can do practically any resistance band exercise from the comfort of your own home. Click here to see the best stretches to use with these bands.

Better yet, for a very short time I can get you these life-saving resistance bands for FREE. Click this link to get yours.

Running

Odds are, when SHTF, you’re going to find yourself in a situation where you’re going to have to run. So it’s best to prepare for it now.

The most effective method is to start slow, and build up. You don’t want to hurt yourself, and pushing yourself too hard, too fast will just make you want to quit.

Here’s a great running drill for beginners:

1st day: Run 100 yards

2nd day: Run 200 yards

3rd day: Run 400 yards

4th day: Run 800 yards

5th day: Run 1,200 yards

6th day: Run a mile (1,600 yards)

Throughout these exercises, when you feel like you can’t run anymore, walk. Then, when your energy is back up, go back to running. It isn’t about being perfect – it’s about pushing your body and increasing your endurance.

If you can’t complete the required distance for that day, no worries. Try again the next day. The more you do this, the easier it’ll get.

Your end goal should be to run about five miles. This will help ensure your body is ready for an emergency when it occurs.

Burpees

This is one of the best exercises you can do to get in shape quickly. Not only are burpees crazy effective, but they’re also simple enough for beginners to do.

To do a Burpee (also known as a “Squat Thrust”), start off standing with your hands in the air. Quickly put your hands on the ground, jump your feet back behind you, and do a pushup.

Then, jump your legs back up to your hands and stand up with your arms above you. You can even jump when you stand to make the exercise more challenging.

It sounds simple, but these will really get your heart rate going! Here’s a couple routines you can do to build endurance and gain the most benefit from this exercise:

The 10 to 1 Routine

Start off by doing 10 burpees in a row. Then rest for one minute.

Then do nine burpees in a row. Take another 60-second rest.

Continue this process, lowering your reps by one every time (and taking a minute rest in-between) until you’re down to just one burpee.

The Two-Minute Turnaround

Set a timer for two minutes, and do as many burpees as you can in that amount of time. Rest when the timer goes off. As you get stronger and build up your endurance, you can start increasing the time by 30-second increments.

Here’s a video that shows you how to do a burpee correctly:

Deadlifts

It’s practically a guarantee that you’ll have to do some heavy lifting when SHTF. And that means you’re going to need to prepare your body for it.

Deadlifts are one of the best exercises you can do to get ready for a crisis.

The traditional version of this exercise entails lifting an olympic bar off the ground (which may have weights on it, depending on how much you can lift).

However, you can even do a deadlift without using an olympic bar. And you can do it without ever having to leave the house.

If you don’t have access to a gym, you’ll want to watch this video right here. It teaches you how to properly do a deadlift with the use of a simple kettlebell. However, you can use a gallon of water, a phonebook, a cast iron skillet…anything that’s got some weight to it.

As you get stronger, make sure to increase the weight in your hands. This exercise shouldn’t be easy, but you shouldn’t be in pain, either. Choose a weight that is challenging, but not painful.

If you do have access to a gym and/or an olympic bar and dumb bells, you’ll want this video right here:

Incorporate these deadlifts into your regular fitness routine, and you’re sure to see results.

Mayorkas in Hot Seat For Allegedly Encouraging Illegals to Vote for Biden

secretary-alejandro-mayorkas-department-homeland-security1

During a recent congressional budget hearing, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas found himself under intense scrutiny by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) concerning a deeply troubling allegation. The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project reported the discovery of a flyer, purportedly from Resource Center Matamoros, which brazenly encourages migrants to vote for President Joe Biden, promising, “We need another four years of his term to stay open.” This inflammatory material, allegedly found by independent journalists in Mexico and reported by Muckraker, raises grave concerns about the integrity of our electoral process.

The flyer, still unverified by mainstream media outlets and missing from the Resource Center Matamoros’s official resources, points to a potential scandal of significant proportions. The implications are severe—suggesting a concerted effort to manipulate U.S. elections by influencing the migrant population, a group explicitly ineligible to participate in our voting system.

Rep. Bishop confronted Mayorkas directly: “The Heritage Foundation Oversight Project has released this document that is allegedly a flyer distributed by a non-governmental organization in Mexico called the Resource Center Matamoros … which is said to read, in part, if translated, ‘Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States. We need another four years of his term to stay open,'” illustrating a critical lapse in border security and immigration enforcement under the current administration.

Mayorkas’s response was both dismissive and inadequate, stating that “individuals who are not citizens of the United States cannot vote in federal elections” and claiming that DHS does not oversee election enrollments but merely enforces border policies. However, this response starkly highlights the core issue—the Biden administration’s lax enforcement and oversight policies, which have allowed millions, including two million undocumented ‘got-aways,’ to potentially exploit loopholes in the electoral registration process.

Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden administration must be held accountable for their role in what appears to be a flagrant disregard for the laws that safeguard both our borders and our ballots. This incident is not an isolated blip but a symptom of a broader, more disturbing trend under Secretary Mayorkas’s DHS: a deliberate softening of immigration policies that seem designed to favor political over practical interests.

It’s imperative for the integrity of our democratic process that thorough investigations are conducted. If migrants are indeed being instructed, implicitly or explicitly, to support a particular political outcome, such actions must be met with the full force of the law. We must demand more than lackluster assurances from our leaders; we need concrete actions and transparent accountability to restore faith in our immigration system and electoral integrity.

Biden’s Blunders: Scripted Leadership in Crisis Times?

arlington-va-usa-may-29-2023

Once again, President Biden has been caught on camera, not trusting his own words during crucial moments. During a recent Oval Office meeting with Iraq’s Prime Minister, while the world reels from a violent missile and drone attack by Iran on Israel, Biden couldn’t step away from his pre-written scripts.

Photographs reveal that Biden, aged 81, resorted to a detailed cheat sheet, which embarrassingly included all-caps stage directions for pausing, allowing for translation. This was during his first public address since the devastating attack on Israel over the weekend. The contrast was stark next to Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia’a Al-Sudani, who spoke freely, without the aid of notes.

Instead of addressing the nation live while missiles were still threatening lives, the White House chose to “call a lid” early in the evening, opting only to release staged photos of Biden in the Situation Room. It was only after the immediate crisis had eased that Biden communicated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express U.S. support, and convened a discussion with G7 leaders—again, following the script too cautiously, reportedly urging Netanyahu to limit Israel’s response, seemingly more worried about political optics than decisive leadership.

In public, Biden stated, “The United States is committed to Israel’s security…We are committed to a cease-fire that will bring the hostages home and prevent the conflict from spreading further.” Yet, these words, read from his script, now ring hollow, reflecting a pattern of relying on scripted safety nets even in supposedly spontaneous discussions.

This tendency to lean heavily on pre-written prompts was noted not only in moments of international crisis but also in less formal settings like private fundraisers, causing discomfort among his own supporters, as per reports from Axios.

As crises unfold, the leader of the free world should be expected to address his nation and the world with conviction and authenticity, not hide behind carefully curated words. The frequent appearance of Biden’s cheat sheets raises concerning questions about his ability to lead through unscripted challenges—where real leadership is tested not by the ability to follow a script, but to speak from the heart and adapt with strength.

Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat

juarez-mexico-12212022-hundreds-migrants-wait

In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.
