Third Tip

You should also start light. Do not attempt to ruck march for long distances with very heavy load at the beginning. This will not only make you lose interest before you are gone a quarter of the way but will also cause you harm.


Fourth Tip

Body weight workouts at least 3 or 4 times a week is the next step. You can turn it up a bit if you are really fit. You can start with pull ups, pushups, sit up and air squats. Throw in a ruck march trial run to build your endurance level and keep at it.
This is how you can do it;
-run a mile
-go down for 100 pullups
-do 200 pushups
-300 air squats
-run another mile.
This training depends on your fitness level. You can cut it in half or smaller bits and then build up as you become better. Never let your body get completely uses to it. It is a great training for endurance and strength.


Increase the distance that you have been covering before. Go farther and longer as you get more and more in sync with the program and gain more understanding of your body. Your body weight workouts also, should increase considerably.
You should go from 25 pushups to 30 to 40 and then on and on. You should also pay attention to every part of your body. Do not spend more time doing body weight workouts that you do less ruck marches and hikings. You would not want uneven development in your body.
