How to Start Rucking

Carry Weight Properly

Use a pack designed to keep the plates in a safe position high on your back and close to your body. Make sure the weight it secured tightly and does not move around.

Start Walking

Keep an upright posture as you walk with relaxed shoulders. The weight of the pack will naturally roll your shoulders back into proper position. Keep your core engaged as you walk or hike.

Slowly Increase Weight and Distance

Start with 10 to 20 pounds a few times per week. As you develop more strength add weight and go for longer distances. Take the time to stretch and work mobility afterwards. Have fun and stay wild!

Great ruck!

This is definitely one of the most comfortable rucks I have ever used. No military ruck even comes close. The 30 pound plate fits snugly within the ruck and it holds a 3 liter water bladder no problem. It has an awesome internal frame. Overall, it is a feature packed ruck at a very reasonable price, compared to the competition.

Highest quality and great community. I am shocked at how easy and effective rucking is. Most workouts in the gym feel fake and artificial. Rucking feels like tapping into human evolution. Doing something we are built to do

I don't regret choosing Wild Gym over GoRuck. I choose Wild Gym because I wanted to get into backpacking. I'm never going to run. Running sucks. The versatility with the hip belt made Wild Gym a better fit for my goals. I do wish the frame was a little longer, though. I think the hip belt would fit a little better if it was.

Thank You

I received my Wild Gym ruck yesterday, loaded it up and put it to the test. I have used several different rucks over the last 35 years and it’s nice to finally get a ruck that delivers on the promises made about quality and comfort. Really happy Rucker…

Love Wild Gym rucking

Your product is excellent. Super high quality. Thanks for making me aware of rucking and Wild Gym through your ads on Instagram. I’m an aging Boomer - 69 years old - that has cut back on my running. I still ride my bike, jump rope, lift, band, stretch, etc. I was hoping that rucking would fit right in to those activities, and so far, so good. Right now I’m going 20 lbs 3 times a week…about 6000 steps per session. Plan to keep increasing steps….I’m a very satisfied client. Thanks again, Rick
