    Number 1 Rule for survival in Zombieland: Cardio.

    Id say im ready fitness wise (cardio and muscular) for anything I need to do. I dont run as much as I used to, but I could still go out and bust out just about any run or hike needed at a fast pace. Not as fast as i used to, but its hard to retain a sustained 6 min mile without running often.

    I think all those 300lb preppers you see on tv and stuff are a joke. They would either die from heart attack the first time they have to run or eat all their food in the first week, assuming they survive the stairs to their hideout cellars.

    I work at being fit, but I don't feel I really am. Most people around me think I am though. I used to run a lot until I got peanut foot (Planters fasciatis). Now I do kettlebells, sledgehammer and tires, sandbags and martial arts.

    Not if they run away? I know some will say you can't outrun a bullet, but hitting a moving target in an urban environment may not be all that easy.

    I have lost 40 lbs since November, and am keeping below 1700 cals a day to keep losing.
    Still need to get serious with cardio and strength training.

    Im 43 and doing my first BJJ grappling tournament in May and my first MMA cage fight later this year.
    My strength and cardio are great, im in the best overall shape of my life.
    I may take longer to recover and old injuries stay sore longer, but thats just part of getting old.

    Yep, not too bad. Was running about 30 miles a week (12 miles long run), but recently cut back to start to incorporate weight lifting again. I eat pretty well although that can be a challenge at times with being on the road 4 days a week.

    It isn't? If you don't have legs, I would have to agree, but if you have legs, and can walk, one of the metrics for fitness is your resting heart rate, and your ability to get to 85% over that rate, and your O2 perfusion.

    What you got that is going to do that apart from moving your limbs faster than you normally do to increase your respiratory rate, stroke volume and heart rate (and no, sex aint it.... :))

    I'm physically strong with very little body fat but cigarettes have me by the balls and if I had to move fast for very long I'd be screwed. Currently trying to convince myself that E-cigs are all I need and not just backup for when I can't smoke.

    I'm in pretty good shape. I've lost some strength and weight since switching jobs, so I'm not hitting the gym consistently, but I still can put up over a 1000lb total in SQ,DL and BP so I have most of my strength still. A cold has kept me out the last few weeks with weights and bicycling, but I'll be back at it as soon as this passes.

    Bicycling.

    Doc says I'm done running unless I want to get replacement knees, so I thought about it and I'm done running.

    Aquajogging, stair master, climber, cycling, elliptical, rowing, there are any number of things that will suffice that do not put the pounding of running on your joints.

    No....not even close.
    When doing a bit of range time, I've been told "draw, fire..run 10m to that station and fire again"
    My reply is always "I carry a gun so that I don't have to run"

    35, 6'2" & 200lbs. Best shape of my life but still looking to improve. I'm running 30+ miles, doing 3-4 hours on the elliptical and lifting 3-4 days/week. Currently training for a half marathon in May.

    In someways yes, do I need lots of improvement you bet. I play golf 5-7 days a week in season (which seems so far away here in S. Maine) I walk every round and hit the piss out of the ball. But I need to get to the gym asap

    I'm almost 53 and battled IIIc breast cancer eleven years ago. I turned into a shriveled skeleton for a year or so and would spend all day in a chair. I never thought I would live this long and I prepared for the alternate a long time ago. It took a long time to come back, but I'm much more active and ornery than I have ever been. I've been playing hockey and working a very physical job. I walked my oldest daughter down the aisle about two years ago.
