Hey you. Yeah, you right there, you're the one I'm talking to.
So I woke up one day and realized that I'd be utterly useless in case of natural disaster, nuclear fallout, terrorist attack or a zombie revolution. I came up with The Post-Apocalyptic Workout as a way to document my attempt to not be a total and complete dumbass in the event of a Nightmare Scenario.
The whole philosophy behind TP-AWO is that I learn to carry my own weight and be responsible for myself (and my dog. Oh, and my husband!) I'd love if you played along at home, but that means you've got to be responsible for yourself.
If you choose to follow The Post-Apocalyptic Workout, you do so at your own risk. It's recommended that you see a Medical Professional before embarking on any sort of fitness endeavor, and only you know your body and what it's capable of doing. I would recommend that you begin slowly, listen to your body, warm up and cool down and stretch adequately. Because she says it better than I would, check out Mistress Krista's advice on using proper form and what to do in case of injury.
I also take no responsibility should you follow the recommendations of any commenter of this site. Just remember to be safe and use common sense. Those are two things that are going to help you survive post-apocalypse, too.
