I go to the gym about 3-4x a wk. I do about 20min cardio either fast walk on the thread mill or bike. I hate to run so when I was in the Navy active and reserves I just swam. Depending on what I run on I sometime get shin splints. Looking to get back into martial arts again too as soon as I find a school I like. After doing all this I still have a spare tire. I guess cause I don't necessarily watch my diet. I do know I can run at least a 1/2 with a 30lbs pack without stopping and still plenty of energy at the end. A mile I would've been dead tired though. At least I was able to 4mos ago. You know I have seen many footages of Militia guys that are suppose to be ready for battle. However the majority of them only focus on shooting and getting their SHTF gear together. Lets face it most of them are FAT. How can you mobilize effectively if YOU ARE your SHTF gear. Not to mention the health ramification of a SHTF scenario. Its not like you can go to 7Eleven to get your twinkie fix when you need to.

Years of abusing my body have made me a cripple. Running, karate, and hiking have taken their toll. I have bad feet, and a bad back. I still work out some, but not like I used to. I could stand to lose about 20lbs from around my middle.

Since we are talking about health here. Check this out. They found evidence that liposuction can lower your cholestorol I wonder if HMO will start to cover it soon. [url]http://home-news.excite.com/news/r/010601/11/science-health-obesity-liposuction-dc[/url]

I try to get to the gym 6 times a week but lately I've been averaging five. I USED to run a lot but my knees and ankles have gotten to hurting more over the years so I mostly do either the exercise bike or the stairmaster for cardio. If I watched what I ate better I could probably lose the 10-15lbs I probably need to lose in a few weeks...but then, if I watched what I ate I wouldn't have to go to the gym six times a week. ;)

The fat is for stored energy when the SHTF and food becomes scarce...[:D]

That's right, as my grandma always put it - 'Good stock fattens easy.' We're portable refrigerators. We eat something, we get as much out of it as we possibly can. And insofar as SHTF scenario, THEY'LL be running from ME, why should I be in shape?[:D] Eric The(Yeah,That'sTheTicket)Hun[>]:)]

The majority of the US Code, Title 10, Chapter 13, section 311 footage that you see over and over again was from a unit in Michigan. There are man other groups that have their shit together who train regularly and did the smart thing by not allowing news crews to get propaganda material. Even though I am 4' 11" 350 lbs, I am now able to walk 3 gun show aisles before I have to sit and rest.

Just so everybody is clear on this, It is NOT a beer belly. It is a fuel tank for a sex machine.

My idea of exercise is to hit the john and the refrigerator during a commercial break.

P.S. if you are under the weight standards for the military then you are in the top 10% for the nation good work.

Not to make you feel too badly, LordT, but when I was testing for the Expert Infantryman's Badge, the top two guys that finished the 12 mile road march (25lb ruck and full combat gear--helmet, rifle, LBV, full canteens, etc) did it in 2 hours 7 minutes, and they jogged the full 12 miles. The two guys had switched lead position several times during the march, and ended up crossing the finish line together.

It's the best incentive to good marksmanship - too slow to run, too fat to hide! The entire nation is going to fat, anyway. See what happens when you get old?

There are several benefits to having large (fat) teammates. They make bigger targets They run slower, so are easier targets And they can be used as improvised cover in a bind
