Ruck Conditioning: Alternatives and Concepts

May 8, 2023

So, in this article, I’m going to touch on some fitness issues that I’ve found most relevant to humping a ruck, over the better part of three decades. This is relevant whether you think you’ll be conducting security patrolling operations, or just might need to “bugout” of your current location, on foot. For those of us who live in the western mountain regions, it has an additional, more immediate relevance. The same conditioning that builds combat ruck performance? Is superbly useful during elk hunting season, so you can get off the two-tracks that are overhunted by jackasses on UTV side-by-sides and ATVs, to get to where the elk hole up.
