Description

Put some weight in a backpack.
Put on the backpack.
Walk.
That’s rucking in a nutshell.
While rucking is simple, it’s also one of the most underrated kinds of cardio you can do:

It burns a boatload of calories

It boosts your cardiovascular fitness

It’s easy to recover from

It’s versatile (you can do it anywhere)

And, it’s social—you can easily do it with a group


What’s more, it’s also very easy to progressively overload your workouts. That is, you can continually make your rucks a little bit harder, which isn’t easy with walking.
In other words, rucking is one of the best kinds of cardio for people who “don’t like” cardio.
