Lucky 7 Workout #3:
10 sets of
50m suitcase carry

10 Plank Pull Throughs
10 Overhead Press
200m Ruck (As Fast As Possible)

Perfect timing, Goruck just put out a 7 workout challenge for April. Just programmed my next 7 workouts for me.
Edit: Add link to demonstrations of each…[Read more]

Cool review @mquadros123. Wish my job included sponsored FoF events
Saturday & Sunday:
45lb ruck on
45 min time hack
Tie the rope to the sandbag
Bear Crawls with sandbag pull through – go until full rope extension
Return to start, pull sandbag in by the rope
Flip tire out & back the same distance
Ruck Only. Add 10lbs over normal (55lbs total)
45 min AFAP (As Far As Possible – like an AMRAP but for distance)
Throw your pack on, hit the timer, and march as far as you can in the time limit while still just walking. Do not TAB or run.
Easy one to do for Lunch Hour Power Hour. Made it ~2.8 mi
This is some great info. Thanks @lowdown3
1 mile run (no PC)
20 min Cindy* with PC
1 mile run (no PC)
I got 10 rounds flat.
*For those who may not know: “Cindy” is AMRAP in the allotted time period of 5/10/15 Pullup/Pushup/Squat.
Roger that. Just trying to keep it on the rails. We’re tracking
You are out of your element, extrapolating greatly, and over exaggerating. My sandbag weighs ~75lbs – hardly powerlifting weight. None of us are trying to get yolked and look like Arnold and none of us are avoiding cardio. Slow your grumpy roll and let this play out a little.
If you’re looking for motivated, like-minded people I still think…[Read more]
Lessons learned from Ultralight Hikers: light weight, cheap, easy to procure, high-calorie resupplies.
Good luck to you! DFQ.
10x Man Maker Burpee + Squat
Maybe I should clarify why I do these events, because it’s not about getting in shape and being fit. @johnnymac does a great job of taking care of that for us. In fact, these events are actually not good for your health and are not sustainable long term.
So we’re all here on this forum because we’ve got the gear, we’re getting the training, and…[Read more]
I just completed a full 26mi ruck marathon a couple weeks ago. The sandbag work is to prepare for the inevitable, and multiple, smoke sessions that are a part of the event. The first part of the event takes hours and that’s just the intro.
3 Mile Ruck
12 Rounds For…
From here on out, no headphones. No music.
This workout, only longer and heavier:
Sandbag workout w/ ruck on
50 seconds on, 10 seconds off
Bent over Rows
Clean & Press
Ended up doing extra Clean & Press and extra Speed Skaters after round 2. Going heavy 2 days in a row felt rough…[Read more]
This thread will be like the Murph thread cataloging workouts leading up to the event. For those that have never done a Goruck event before, hopefully this gives some context and a starting point for your own entry! This prep will be for a Heavy specifically, which is ~24 hrs and 40+ miles with a ~50% attrition…[Read more]

Light weight is the future of LBE. The balance of weight and durability is the challenge. In the same boat with you doing UL Backpacking as a hobby. A lot of the equipment is not a direct crossover due to colors and durability reasons but material technology and smart stitching are coming a long way VERY fast. Expect to see a wave of new light…[Read more]
In addition to the above, experimenting with a Magpul BAD lever may help your situation. My Dad is also a lefty.
