The military understands this one fact when it comes to surviving on the battlefield…
… an out of shape soldier is a dead soldier!
In order to survive life-or-death combat, your body must be up to the task.
That’s why the military places so much emphasis on a total health & fitness program like the one I’ve told you about.
But here’s why this matters to you…
“Street” survival when you’re locked in close quarters combat with 1, 2, 3, or more attackers is going to require you to be fast, agile, and strong.
Regardless of what the martial arts experts may say, it’s simply a fact that the better shape you’re in, the better your chance of defeating your attacker(s).
So, ask yourself this question (and be honest) …
When you’re forced to enter the “battlefield” of the streets, will you have the physical stamina to put all your close combat skills to use?
Or will you be gasping for breath, weakened and exhausted as they drag you to the ground for a life-ending pounding?
Like I said, it’s a hard truth to face and only you know the answer.
But if you’re up for a small challenge, I have a short test that will help you measure your current level of “combat readiness” and establish a plan to be better prepared…
You see, the military requires all if its soldiers to pass a physical fitness test twice a year.
This simple test is designed to measure if a soldier is “fit-to-fight”.
It covers a 2-minute timed test for push-ups and sit-ups as well as a 2-mile run.
For right now, I’m only going to ask you to do the push-up version.
(This is important so don’t skip this, ok?)
Do this right now…
* Grab a watch and set it on the floor in front of you, facing up so you can see the time.
* When ready, start doing “real” push-ups as fast as you can.
(Note: You need to keep your body straight and go all the way up until your elbows are locked and all the way down until your upper arms are parallel to the floor. No cheating.)
* To rest during these 2 minutes, you CAN’T lift your hands or feet but you CAN sag in the middle or raise your butt up in the air.
* Do as many as you can for 2 minutes and record the number you did.
Now, let’s see how you scored based upon the military’s Basic Training standards…
(Keep in mind that these are the BARE MINIMUMS you would need to “pass”.)
* Passing score if you didn’t even bother to try this test…
Sorry, you’re dead 🙂 Look, if you’re not willing to do just a couple of push-ups and take a good hard look at your physical readiness, what makes you think you’re going to have the “killer instinct” you need to defeat a violent thug? Take this seriously, grab your watch, and let’s try this again. Do it now and read your score below…
* Passing score if you’re a MALE:
Age 27-31: At least 30 push-ups
Age 32-36: At least 26 push-ups
Age 37-41: At least 24 push-ups
Age 42-46: At least 21 push-ups
Age 47-51: At least 16 push-ups
Age 52-56: At least 11 push-ups
* Passing score if you’re a FEMALE:
Age 27-31: At least 10 push-ups
Age 32-36: At least 9 push-ups
Age 37-41: At least 6 push-ups
Age 42-46: At least 6 push-ups
Age 47-51: At least 4 push-ups
Age 52-56: At least 4 push-ups
If you “passed”… congratulations!
It may not mean that you’re where you want to be (or need to be) to survive a deadly attack with ease, but it’s a good start.
If you didn’t pass… don’t worry. At least you had the guts to take the test and see where you’re at.
No matter whether you passed or failed, the key is this…
The better shape you’re in (with more muscle and less body-fat), the better your chances of surviving… PERIOD!
That’s the honest truth.
If your mirror is telling you that you should be in better shape, then it only makes sense that the fitness and nutrition program from the U.S. military is the best place to start.
In fact, studies have shown that their program is about 288% more effective than regular diet plans you’ll find out there.
Here’s an “advanced” military-style fitness program that will work (even if you can’t do a single push-up): Get “fit-to-fight” fast!
It was designed by a friend of mine who was a Master Fitness Trainer in the military and a civilian trainer as well.
And best of all, you don’t need to give up beer, pizza, nachos, or other “guilty foods” you love to eat.
The “before & after” photos of real people (just like you) are pretty amazing and there’s a 1-year guarantee that it will work for you too.
You really owe it to yourself to at least check it out and see if it’s a good fit for you, right?
Don’t put this off.
