The movie "I am Legend" was an awesome film (several films actually) that makes me ask the question: What if the world as we know it was going to end? Worse yet, what if you survived the "end of the world" and had no shelter or food and a variety of environmental obstacles and dangers to overcome? Let’s say you know the end is coming and you have time to prepare (assuming the end of the world is going to resemble the “I am Legend” scenario and you are going to be trapped in a mangled, broken city). Collapsed buildings, heavy debris, and wild animals running down Main Street. How would you train mentally and physically for this type of urban environment?

Two summers ago I woke up early one morning and walked up Mount Spalding with a 32kg (70 lb) kettlebell in my backpack. The deep blue skies were hanging over the breathtaking landscape, the alpine lake was glistening, and the Rocky Mountains were surrounding us. The snow from the night before and the cold breeze blowing made the morning a little colder that I had expected. As beautiful as the scenery was, I wasn't really enjoying it all that much! My goal was to walk the 32kg (70lb) kettlebell up to the peak and complete 140 Clean & Jerks. This was something I had never done before and I was really wondering what it would take to complete.
