Survival is all about pushing your body beyond its limits, further than you ever thought it could go. When we hear harrowing stories of unbelievable survival, it often includes a person, or people, surviving physical conditions most of us could never imagine possible.
However, our bodies are capable of much more than we realize. You don’t even have to be in a survival situation to find this out, just check out our video on the Murph Memorial CrossFit challenge! I definitely would never think I could do something like that, but seeing other people complete challenges like that always reminds me just how capable our bodies are.
Of course, most bodies have a point, and there are simple facts of the kind of conditions that lead to nearly certain demise. This chart from EmergencySurvivalGear.com explores different conditions and the point at which they become fatal to the human body.
