Put some weight in a backpack.

Put on the backpack.

Walk. 

That’s rucking in a nutshell. 

While rucking is simple, it’s also one of the most underrated kinds of cardio you can do:

  • It burns a boatload of calories
  • It boosts your cardiovascular fitness
  • It’s easy to recover from
  • It’s versatile (you can do it anywhere)
  • And, it’s social—you can easily do it with a group 

What’s more, it’s also very easy to progressively overload your workouts. That is, you can continually make your rucks a little bit harder, which isn’t easy with walking.

In other words, rucking is one of the best kinds of cardio for people who “don’t like” cardio.
