How to move

Mechanics of Movement


There are three main things to keep in mind when rucking:

1. Shorten your stride to reduce impact force and biomechanical strain.

2. Keep your head level, balanced, and focused in front of you. Look forward, not down!

3. Keep repeating steps 1 and 2; as we get tired we often forget the basics or fall in to bad habits.



Test Yourself

1. Find a flat, known distance of about 100 feet (exact distance isn’t important).

2. Walk down and back normally (film yourself, or have a friend film you).

3. Carry your packed ruck (filming yourself once again).

4. Compare the two videos and make any necessary corrections.
