LIFT HEAVY, RUCK BETTER

Ruck Strong is a weight training program designed to complement and enhance the ruck training that you already do.  It has been shown repeatedly that incorporating strength training into ruck endurance training programs can improve rucking speed and reduce your likelihood of injury.

TRAIN LIKE THE ATHLETE YOU ARE

Athletes that train for a specific sport do strength programs that are developed based on the tasks and movements the athlete must perform while doing their sport. Unlike other strength programs that are designed for a general population, Ruck Strong is programmed to optimize how the strength you gain in the gym transfers to the development of rucking speed and durability. 

 

Because rucking is a full-body activity, Ruck Strong is a full-body program that will also give you a solid strength base to enhance your performance during PT, running and your other athletic endeavors.

 

While doing Ruck Strong, you will squat, deadlift, push and pull, just as you do in other programs, but you will also do movements that may be new to you or do familiar movements with small adjustments that enhance their carryover to rucking.

LIFT SMARTER, NOT LONGER

Ruck Strong workouts focus on movement quality, using exercises that get results and make the most out of the time you spend in the gym.  They are designed to get you in and out of the gym in about an hour.

HOW RUCK STRONG WORKS

Each Ruck Strong Cycle is 3 months long and is broken into 3 Phases.  Over the course of the Cycle, you will complete up to a total of 36 lifting sessions.
