What the ruck is a ruck?  A hike with a weighted backpack (approx 30 lbs) while stopping along the brisk walk to do some invigorating exercise. Excellent 1st F (fitness) and 2nd F (fellowship). If an FNG (Friendly New Guy) is a bit timid to post for a workout the ruck is a great intro to the pax.

    The Thang: Pre running and rucking

    Runners did their thang.

    Ruckers rucked one mile at a sub 16 minute pace and stopped for 15 minutes of the following PT:
    10) American Hammers with ruck
    10) Merkins with ruck on
    10) Ruck overhead squats

    Finished with another mile ruck.

    Called time and circled back at the flag for 2nd F before the start of beatdown.

    Saved COT for after beatdown.
