what fitness are you doing for SHTF

I need to do more cardio. I lift weights, both bench and free weights and I hit the bag but I really need to hit the bike or run or walk more. Been saying that for years. Pretty sure that it may be my downfall. I watched that funny movie "Zombieland" and it got an audible laugh in the first few minutes when it said "Number one rule of Zombieland? Cardio." I honestly laughed and thought "yeah... no s**t."

I'm building a house.
I refuse to pay some asshole good money to do heavy labor at a gym and I get no tangible benefit from it other than "working out". I figure the best "workout regiment" is to actually perform useful work.
Since we started the build, I have dropped 4 inches around my middle and gained about 20 pounds. I have switched to a diet of almost strictly carbs and red meat. Mrs Inor makes me take a vitamin every day but I have no idea what is in it.
I feel great right now and I'll probably die tomorrow. But I do not care as I am having the time of my life.

I have physical issues because of what I did to my body in years before. Some of the things I did were for country, and some were committed due to testosterone . Either way, what was done was done.

Yeah. I'm a dumbass.
Starting this weekend, I am going to start doing the exercises the therapist told me to do.
I swear, I'm going to do them. This time.

so i went to the gym this morning i did 30 mins on the bike and then used the weights. the 30 mins on the bike wasn't as bad as i thought it would be but i wasn't going that fast i kept it at about 60 rpm but the weights killed me. i have a slight birth defect in my right shoulder. so i have to use it a little differently than normal. so doing weights wore it out to day lol. but i feel good i just hope i stick with this i always say i will go to the gym and never do im hoping to stick through it this time. im sure i will be in pain tomorrow
I'm a huge fan of bodyweight exercises and "weighted cardio". I prefer to be strong and useful, not chiseled and pretty.
Make sure is a bicycle with a tiny seat that you can bike while standing, not the type with a support for your butt and back lol

My knees are bad from the military
my Back is bad from the military
my neck is bad from the military
BUT I can shot exceptionally well and if the fight (like most) goes less then 45 seconds.. well HELL
Because I never really had time for gyms. Over the years I picked up my own stuff . Maybe not state of the art by today's standards but it still work. Spent my entire time in the Army in the infantry. Got lucky no knee problems yet. Most of the stuff I broke healed up ok . Army doctors fixed the shoulder . They did a great job. Hearing aids help with the hearing loss. All in all I have nothing to complain about.

Karl Marx said, "Destroy their culture, rewrite their history. Ruin their art and literature, and defame their heroes, by offering fabrications to scandalize that which they considered good.
After reading this Obama said I am on it.
I eat right and try and limit my caloric intake around 2,000 calories a day. I drink at minimum 40 ounces of water per day and I work out about three times per week. During my work out routine I ride an exercise bike 5 miles for cardio. Then I work out on the machines. I take l cittruline and HMB supplements before work out as well as eating alot of protein prior to work out. After work out I take l carnitine. My muscles seem to recover faster with these supplements. Once I get down to my target weight I'm going to start adding creatine with the l carnitine.
