Base Level of Fitness
What is considered a base level of fitness? At the minimum, an individual should be able accomplish the following sequence in its entirety without feeling considerably spent:
- Jog five miles without cessation (12 minutes per mile or less)
- 35 consecutive pushups (standard straight-leg version) or 45 pushups (alternative knee version)
- 5 unassisted pull-ups or 10 assisted pull-ups
- 50 jumping jacks
There is a significant difference, however, between “base” and “combat-ready” fitness. Without a sufficient level of stamina, having to fend off multiple undead attacks during a full blown outbreak will reduce an unprepared individual to an exhausted shell of a human being within hours. To be a truly effective warrior against the undead, regular, sustained exercise must be maintained.
