Close-Quarters Conditioning

Close-Quarters Conditioning

Being ready for anything means you need be prepared both mentally and physically, but the physical aspect is even more important when it comes to emergency situations and your own survival.

Let's face it, not everybody has the funds for a nice home gym setup and most of us don't have the room for one either. Luckily, we can still keep our bodies in shape without fancy exercise equipment or a designated workout room thanks to some simple motions and good old gravity.

This MagScan from the winter 2014 issue of OFFGRID Magazine demonstrates a sample workout routine that focuses on all your major muscle groups, while having you do several sets of each to get your cardio in too. The best part of this sample routine is that it was designed with close quarters in mind in case you find yourself in a tight living space for a prolonged period of time.

Just remember, whether you use these exercises or your own workout routine, try to get your heart rate up for at least 45 minutes 3 times per week. As the old saying goes, "Use it or lose it".
