Shoulders and back day in the gym before heading off to do a 5-mile rucksack march. Conduct the ruck over varied terrain and remember to hydrate throughout. Safe travels for our friends in the Carolinas with thunderstorms and the hurricane in the area. But still be careful out there if you venture out.
It is a good habit to get used to hydrating while rucking and a needed one for the time when you’re in the course. Mark your time down in your workout logbook.
