One of the things I talk about a lot on this site is how mindset and fitness are the keys to surviving almost any crisis. While we talk a lot about gear, I usually always preface that by saying that gear is great; but knowledge, fitness, training, and the will to survive are what make the difference.
Four Killer at Home Fitness Programs
If you are looking to get in shape, then check out my article on prepper fitness. But if you are looking to take things to the next level then I wanted to share some killer workout routines that can help you boost your fitness without ever having to walk into a gym.
P90X was one of the first real home workout programs to look at every part of your body and take gym style results and bring them into the home. I personally used the original P90X program and saw some awesome results from it, but one of the biggest drawbacks of that program was how long the routines lasted. I just didn’t have the time to devote an hour to an hour and a half every day for the program, so when they released the condensed 30-minute a day program, I was pretty stoked to see it.
If you like the longer format, Insanity has routines that range from 40-60 minutes. This is a cardio heavy workout program that uses intense spurts followed by shorter rests — a formula that has ben shown to create muscle quicker and increase your endurance levels at a faster rate.
I like this program because it brings in Mixed Martial Art (MMA) style conditioning that can help from a self-defense standpoint. MMA fighter Georges St. Pierre and his trainer Erik Owings takes you through 8 weeks of MMA style training to give you huge results in a short period of time.
So as you can see in the video above, RIPT90 doesn’t come close to the excitement and production value of the Beachbody videos. What it does do right is the cost. The videos are a fraction of the cost, giving it one of my top spots on the list of home workout programs.
RIPT90 includes 14 workouts designed to shred fat and build muscle over a 90 day period. The videos routines clock in anywhere from 15-40 minutes.
