Being fit isn't just about feeling good. It's about staying alive. Yes, we tone our bodies for long term health purposes, but we also have an obligation to prep for the short term. There are thousands of scenarios when you may not have a weapon. And in that time, t is very possible you may need to defend yourself or the lives of others. Will you be ready? Have you hardened your body? Will you get winded in a prolonged fight? Will you be physically ready when someone twice your weight comes after you? Your lungs and strength are as valuable as any weapon. They are, in fact, weapons of their own. Toughen yourself in training to be ready when everything is on the line.
