Survival Life and Managing Editor ‘Above Average’ Joe have published the most recent semiweekly Newsletter, sent to subscribers via email to bring critical information directly to their inboxes.
The main article was contributed by Van Becker, who specializes in personal training and its applications within emergency preparedness. While it comes as little surprise, Becker proclaims the vast majority of Americans to be overweight, causing serious and preventable problems with disaster survival.
Since two thirds of the country are overweight, Becker said a disaster requiring traveling far distances by foot would mean that “way too many are not going to make it very far because they are carrying 45+ lbs. of excess body fat, weight they cannot just drop in an emergency.”
“Progressive resistance training, high intensity interval cardio, and a structured eating plan in conjunction with the weights and cardio will initiate weight loss and improve overall performance,” said Becker in the article.
Joe’s contribution to the Newsletter was the Survival Tip of the Day, which picks up where a previous article left off. Proper shoe care is as important as any other prepping activity, so Joe shares even more tips on maintain the quality and performance of footwear.
The article gives instructions on cleaning and conditioning leather shoes, which can stretch the lifespan of shoes dramatically and keep them in the best shape possible.
The Practical Prepper article was contributed by John Landry, a new addition to the SurvivalLife.com writing team. Landry is a Ph.D. and a full-time active duty police officer, training coordinator and police instructor in South Florida. He has experience as a firearm instructor, Emergency Response Team member, and currently serves as a senior member of the United States Air Force Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol.
Landry reviewed the Defender, described in the article as a “covert defensive tool.” The defender is something that looks like a cross between a bottle opener and windshield scraper, but is determined to be a valuable tool according to the article.
“The Defender is a piece of plastic type material flat but with a unique shape,” wrote Landry. “The edges and sides of the Defender all have specific purposes. You can control a person with one side, apply pressure to vital targets with another side, and strike with many of the sides.”
