    Scenario based fitness 1. Zombies

    You have 6 weeks to physically prepare yourself for the zombie outbreak.
    Your starting point is at your residence, so base your training off where you live, and for those 6 weeks, what equipment you have access to,
    The zombies will run at a average jogging pace, but will NEVER tire. As usual, a kill shot to the brain is the only way to permanently kill them and bites and scratches, that result in the transfer of zombie blood, turn you into a zombie.


    Go.

    Hmmmm wonder if I can get a flamethrower & a Gatling gun on freecycle?
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    I would rather become a zombie. Much higher rate of survival.
    Few but ripe.

    Lol. Yeah as much as I would LOVE to be a badass, I can't even sustain a comfortable jog, so there's that, according to these rules! 6 weeks would not be long enough. They'd catch up in about 120.26599 seconds. Plus I'm a certified wimp when it comes to horror films (and anything running towards the person in horror films, especially zombie/infected fasties), I can't imagine if it happened IRL.

    I would load up my back pack with weight and go to the park, run hill sprints every other day. Every day I would climb trees and my house and fences to have insane climbing strength, I would lose weight so I could stay lite, and I would do Squats with whatever I could, and pushups, and swing a heavy sledge hammer every day....rest and prepare....

    This is a funny post! I would definitely be the person to trip and not be able to get up for 5 minutes 😝

    Zombies are why I started doing crossfit to supplement my Wendler 5/3/1 lifting!

    I'd start doing all exercise wearing a weight vest, wrist and ankle weight bands, and a rucksack. I would drop 5/3/1 and focus on bodyweight (plus the extra weight being worn) exercises.

    Once the zombies arrived, I'd armour up to reduce likelihood of zombification through minor scratches. My 6 week training would hopefully allow me to move (especially climb) wearing armour, a pack (containing essentials), and carrying weapons.

    What is the goal here? If the zombies came, you would survive longer by turning your house into a fortress rather than leaving. If the goal is to be physically prepared to run from your house, where are you running to? Regardless of how fit you are, you will get tired and the zombies won't.

    Now if I had one of these, now your talking!

    This very serious question relates purely to physical training. Yes, you would fortify your home and stockpile goods (although that would be dependent on where you lived e.g. an apartment in a high rise would not be worth defending unless you protected the entire building, not to mention the increased risk of being in a more densely populated area with limited open space...), but in terms of long term survivability, you would need to be able to move efficiently whilst carrying additional weight over varied terrain.

    Not to be argumentative but, again, move where? I can see leaving your fortress to forage for food and that would become more difficult when the fuel supplies became unusable and you had to do it on foot but in this scenario of a zombie outbreak, unless you are moving to a deserted island, moving over long distances on foot will do nothing more than get you killed.

    Again, regardless of how good a physical condition you are in, you will tire, the zombies won't.
