You must take what we've prepared you for and hone your most tribal instincts because prison is the "survival of the fittest". Yes, physically fit is important, but mentally fit is as well. Learn the dos and don'ts and steer clear of conflict by keeping your mouth shut. Remember the word, "RESPECT" and take good care not to disrespect any inmate. The size and shape of the inmate does not matter, there are too many ways to get at someone if they want to. Prisoners work in teams and will make sure the disrespected pay, even if you are a bad ass weight-lifter or self-professed bad ass, the tiniest inmate will crack your skull with a lock-in-a-sock. That's all it takes, game over.
