Tip: Do You Meet These 5 Fitness Standards?

Can you do all five of these things? You should be able to. Check the list.

Think of this as a template, not a complete prescription. This is a comprisal of the qualities that develop a savage. It's up to you to determine what you need. Here are a few simple screens:

  1. Can't deadlift two times your body weight? You need to get stronger.
  2. Can't broad jump eight feet? You need more power.
  3. Can't touch your toes? You need mobility.
  4. Can't run a mile without stopping? You need better conditioning. I'm not saying you need to run miles at a time or improve your mile time, but every self-respecting man should be able to run a mile without having to take a breather.
  5. Can't hold an iso-lunge for a minute without taking a break? You need to get tougher.

It might be that you need to develop all these qualities or just a couple. If you're confused about where to start, improve your mobility and get stronger.
