The enduraLAB Ruck Club was created to provide an opportunity for our community to improve their fitness outside the gym. Everyone can ruck. It's fun. It's social. It's so simple, yet so good for you.
The Benefits of Rucking
Rucking has gained in popularity over the past few years, and rightfully so. While this fitness activity is simple, it's also super effective. "Rucking", or walking while carrying weight, is applicable to anyone that has the physical capability to walk. Scalable to any fitness level and with the ability to do anywhere, rucking can help you improve your posture, get stronger, increase your endurance and provide a boost to your mental health.
Rucking Gear Tips
Rucking is simple and so is the gear you need. To get started you only need 3 things: a ruck, some weight and water. First time rucking? Here are some ruck weight suggestions:
Beginner: If you're under 150#, carry a 10# weight and if you're over 150# carry 20#.
Intermediate: If you're under 150#, carry a 20# weight and if you're over 150# carry 30#.
We highly recommend a weighted plate that is flat against your back, but don't let that stop you. Get creative, load up your rucksack, and get out there!
