Self-defense encompasses a lot of different physical components - from being able to physically defend yourself to getting away from a dangerous situation quickly - being in your personal best physical condition can make all of the difference.
Michael Phelps can not run like Usain Bolt and Usain Bolt can’t swim like Michael Phelps. We all need to train to our strengths.
What exercises do you do while you’re at home?
For example, while we’re working remotely, I’m doing a lot of stairs because my office is in the basement. I will run up the stairs, take two at a time, go up backward or sideways (not all at the same time). I’m working different leg muscle groups doing the stairs differently.
I am also entertaining my granddaughter lifting her a number of different ways - mimicking all sorts of upper body workouts. She loves it and I get a workout.
