When resistance training works, it doesn’t have to be hard

By Dan Lamothe/National Geographic Contributor, April 15, 2020 12:16:02 Resistance training can help you to feel more like yourself, whether you are working with animals or fighting the enemy in the field.

But it can also help you build strength, and this article from National Geographic helps us understand why this is so.

In the spring of 2020, I was in a training session in a remote corner of Afghanistan.

We were working with a group of Afghan farmers who were trying to grow crops for the local community.

One of them asked me what kind of training I was doing.

“You are training to help you defend yourself against the enemy,” I told him.

“And the enemy is attacking you!”

He was right.

I was in the midst of a training program in which we worked with a dog to protect me from Taliban snipers.

“We are working to build the dog’s confidence in fighting the Taliban,” said a farmer who was a member of the group.

“We are building up the courage and stamina to be able to take on the enemy.”

The farmer then explained to me that he had been trained by the Afghan military to protect his crops from snipers.

It was an effective strategy, I thought, as we had been shot at in a previous training session and had been killed a number of times.

But I was wrong.

After months of training and exercises, I started to feel like a stronger person.

This training exercise was supposed to last only for a few weeks, but I had already gained so much strength that I felt ready to take my next step.

I asked the farmer if I could have a go.

He laughed.

“No,” he said.


I said.

But the farmer was not happy.

The training had given me confidence, he told me, and I needed more.

So, I decided to try it myself.

Training with animals can help develop the body’s resilience and strength, but it can do the same for your mind and your body.

If you are an athlete, you know that strength and endurance are two sides of the same coin, and they are not separate.

Strength comes from physical activity, endurance comes from being able to stay focused.

The same applies to mental toughness, and mental toughness comes from a sense of being able and willing to fight back.

In the military, soldiers who were trained to be more physically robust were able to fight against an enemy who was using a sniper rifle.

They could also defend themselves from a firefight with enemy insurgents, and even from a suicide bomber who was shooting from a nearby rooftop.

For most people, the training process of resistance training can take about a year, but in my case, it was just a few days.

I had my dog and I began training with the help of a local farmer.

When I went back to my base in January, I felt much stronger than I had in months.

It was the same day that I had to go to a local military hospital, where I was sent to the intensive care unit.

They had to prepare me for the operation, which involved a massive, two-hour surgery to remove my intestines.

Once the surgery was complete, I received a second round of antibiotics and then the final surgery, which would be performed on my stomach.

At this point, I had lost more than 100 pounds, and the only thing that could help me regain some of that weight was a small dose of steroids, which were the most popular prescription drugs for the mentally strong.

As the recovery process went on, I began to feel much more alert and energetic.

I started noticing that my mind was getting clearer and my body felt lighter and healthier.

Then, one day, my trainer showed me a picture of a dog in a box.

He said that he would be the first person I would go to if I ever needed to use a dog for resistance training.

There was no hesitation in my mind.

On a dark day, I took a picture with my phone of a box full of boxes, and with the caption “I’m a dog.”

I had trained myself to be stronger and more resilient.

I was ready for my next challenge.

A few weeks later, I met my trainer at a local gym, and after we had a chat, we started training together.

We had been working with the farmer, but he had also joined us.

He was a military trainer who had previously served in the Special Forces and had become a doctor.

He helped me understand what resistance training was, how to handle my new strength, how the training would work for me, how I could build my confidence, and how to fight with my dog.

With this experience, I realized that I was already in good shape, and my training would be a great way to build up my physical and mental stamina.

By the end of the month, I looked
