If the SHTF in December you will have at least 4 to 5 moths with winter. Being normal fit is a lot better than lifting weights and gaining muscles.
It is better to strengthen the body structure you already have to the environment you will be exposed to. Because it only takes 5 to 6 days of
constant stress to loose what you had spent a year building up with the help of weights, or what ever else you tried to built up in the body shop.
The most important issue within survival is first off all your mentality. Learn how You and your body react to starvation, cold temperatures, bad
weather, stress and fatigue.
Learn how to make the right choices for your body under these conditions in the environment you think you will be in. The only way to prepare for
something like this, is to be exposed to all the elements of stress. Your body and mentality will harden as you progress, you will also be a lot more
familiar with how you are capable of handling real survival by making good choices there and then. This MIGHT make your next day or the next few hours
a lot easier.
It is a lot better to know what its like to survive, than to imagine what it would be like. Because you will be surprised of how wrong you where.
It is not a weakness to be weak physically if you are strong mentally. Because if you are strong mentally you are more suited to make the right
choices on your abilities. That means you have to be smart and creative so you dont make to many mistakes. The best way to reduce mistakes is to be
exposed and learn from the exposure.
