At first I was going to say yes, without a doubt building fitness makes a person harder to kill.
I’m not sure about you, but personally every barbell squat, kettlebell swing, turkish get-up, 500m row and jump rope interval makes me that much harder to put 6 feet deep.
[Improving fitness cannot just be centered around improving exertion. Exertion is just one piece of the puzzle, a fragment of a much larger picture. We must consider the role of achieving better body position or movement pattern quality, tissue health and integrity, recovery and nutrition to be highly influential topics that enhance our ability to perform.]
It’s empowering to know that my stopping power increases with each and every repetition, distance covered and position held.
In fact, I was walking through the grocery store yesterday sizing up other customers wondering who might challenge me to a scrap.
As fate would have it, I navigated my way through the treacherous isles of the store without a single encounter, purchasing my groceries unscathed.
Leaving the store, my thoughts quickly shifted to a classic movie scene from Indiana Jone’s. Many of you will remember this particular clip quite well…
But if you do manage to trick me with ninja smoke and slip in a finishing move, please, do me the service of burying me ass up so you’ll have a place to park your bike.
Harder to kill? Sweet slogan but hardly relevant for most of us. 🙂
Whatever gets you going though, right?
