Rucking, simply put, is walking with a weighted rucksack. Rucking has proven to have many benefits including burning up to 3 times as many calories than walking. Men's Heath wrote a great general article about rucking that I encourage anyone who in interested in rucking to check out.
If you want want to get your feet wet and start rucking, join other members of Lethbridge Sports and Social Club for regular rucks in Lethbridge.
October 17 - Rucking - Bull Trail Park 7 p.m.

Beginner: If you are under 150 lbs., carry a 10 LB weight and if you are over 150 lbs. carry 20.
Intermediate: If you are under 150 lbs., carry a 20 LB weight and if you are over 150 lbs. carry 30.
We highly recommend a weighted plate that is flat against your back, but not everyone has a weight plate, so get creative and load up your rucksack.

"Maybe you’re still not sure about GORUCK yet but you want to do something because everyone tells you how great the people are and that it’s worth it. They’re right by the way and welcome to GORUCK Light. It means lighter vibe, lighter loads and less time commitment, which means more time to party with your class after you’re done. Fun fact: never sign up and you’ll never know. But the average completion rate of those who show up is 100%. If you can do a 5K, you can earn the GORUCK Light patch."
