With the fall season upon us, that forces some of us indoors for workouts. For those of us without gym memberships or just flat out don’t want to go to a gym, there are options. I like the idea of working out at home with minimal equipment. I’ve done other body weight routines as well as workouts with weighted vests and dumbbells. GORUCK offers another unique option if you’re looking to switch things up a bit. Check out the following Ruck Workout!
From the GORUCK website
Rucking is the foundation of Special Forces training. Green Berets are well versed in shouldering heavy rucks through cities, mountains, jungles and deserts, in war and in peace — alone when they must, together whenever possible. Rucking requires strength, endurance, and character — and builds it, too.
The best way to get better at rucking is to go out and do it, but you can use your rucksack for a lot more than rucking. Supplement your ruck with these exercises or add some weight to your normal routine. Try rucking a few miles, doing a ruck workout, then rucking back to where you started.
