RUCK•ING [Verb] // Walking with a weighted rucksack (aka backpack). It implies action, energy, and purpose. Rucking requires strength, endurance, and character — and builds it, too.
Rucking is a great way to build both strength and aerobic capacity. The best part is, everyone can do it!
Whether you're just looking for a way to start getting in shape or want to add something new to your training program, rucking is for you.
