Get the right ruck/backpack that feels comfortable for your body, height and size.
Load the ruck with the weight as high as possible and as close to your spine as possible. Loading the weight higher in the ruck makes you much more mobile than if the weight is at the bottom of the bag. (The lower the weight hangs, the more effort it requires. It also causes more knee and back pain.)
Keeping the weight close to your spine allows you to stand in a healthier posture (instead of leaning forward to compensate for the position of the weight)
Now it’s Time to CRUSH GOALS!
