Time to head over to the gym for some shoulder and back work. As we mentioned in an earlier post, these shoulder workouts help in rucking, especially once in Selection. Be sure to log the progress down in your workout log book.

And because Wednesday is one of our rucking days, strap on a 45-pound minimum weight ruck and conduct a 6-miler over varied terrain. Wear your second pair of boots to ensure that they’re well broken-in for the course as well. And be wary of the snow and ice today. Strive to better the time that is the standard (90-minutes) and remember to hydrate throughout the march.
