Training Tips for Rucking
Start with a weight that's manageable, about 10% of your body weight, and focus on maintaining proper form. Keep your spine neutral and align your hips, knees, and feet as you move. Gradually increase the weight and distance as your body adapts to the challenge.
Community and Challenges
Rucking isn't just a solo journey; it's a community-driven activity. Join ruck clubs, participate in events, and share experiences with fellow enthusiasts. Take on more challenging rucks over time, like hilly terrains or timed routes, to push your limits.
Rucking with MudGear is more than just a workout; it's an adventure that tests your limits and builds resilience. Our specialized ruck socks and sandbag are designed to support you on this journey. Embrace the challenge and discover a new dimension of fitness with MudGear.
