RUCK•ING [VERB] // Walking with a weighted rucksack (aka backpack). It implies action, energy, and purpose. Rucking requires strength, endurance, and character — and builds it, too.

Rucking is Cardio
Cardio for people who think running sucks. If you want to burn up to 3X as many calories as walking, ruck instead. Your heart pumps faster to get oxygen rich blood throughout your body, increasing circulation. And you can talk to your friend, who’s rucking right next to you.

Rucking is Stupid Simple
You wear a backpack, walk, it’s a fitness thing. And you’re already doing it. Hiking is rucking in the mountains and urban hiking is simply called rucking. Rucking can be done at any weight.

Rucking is Scalable
The weight adds resistance training to your back and shoulders, your glutes and legs with every step – resulting in strength gains without the bulk. Want more? Up the weight, increase the distance, or go faster.

Health & Science
Do you want to… Be more active? Burn more calories? Get stronger? Improve your posture? Have a healthier heart? When walking is not enough and running sucks, Rucking is the path.
