As a someone that got out of the Marine Corps in 2016, I must say that I missed rucking! The name Embrace the Ruck is perfect, because it takes a total weirdo to like rucking and the misery that accompanies it. I'm right on track with moving onto week 2 of the program and I am loving this S**T! If all goes smooth as planned, I'll be national guard 11B in May 2024, and I'm truly enjoying my time getting back into rucking regularly. I have told many buddies about Gritty Soldier and his content. Bad ass, keep getting some soldier. I look forward to purchasing and completing all of his programs.
Very happy to have this information as advanced beginner to rucking. I am looking for ways to increase my pace to a sub-15 minute per mile to meet standard. Right now, at about 16:30/mile, carrying 75 pounds at 62+ years of age. Was looking for any advantage I could get to keep up with you young guys. Great information is always provided whether rucking or anything else on the Gritty Solider network.
Embrace The Ruck is a Great Training Routine! The Step By Step Process really Works! I look forward to each Day’s workout!
Pro: Contains a lot of information adjacent to rucking (e.g., about nutrition and recovery).
Con: Lack of table of contents with hyperlinks to different sections.
Pro: Affordable and produces results.
Conclusion: I look forward to the intermediate and advanced versions being pushed out in the future.
This is a thorough programme, though perhaps slightly frustrating that it only says it is a beginners programme when you have downloaded it. All sound stuff for getting back into things from my perspective, although I have struggled to stick to the correct days And so am perhaps not getting the most out of recovery. As with most things like this having the plan itself is good motivation in itself. More realistic (in terms of commitment/recovery) than some programmes with similar aims.
