My other goal in life has been to be the first biological male to get knocked up, but it hasn't worked out so far. Do you think getting really, really fat would be a good substitute? That would make me fast in the spring, right?I took a risk.
Funny story about loaded backpacks. Last fall my wife was pregnant with our first, pregnancy is basically training with a load backpack on all the time. Because of Covid, she did no gym work. In the spring, after giving birth, her lean muscle quad girth was the highest it had been in 15 years of training.
So maybe a better strategy than a loaded backpack is getting knocked up.
I don't want to knock anyone's stuff they like, but I sort of agree. It comes across to me like fake or forced and you are imitating an actual pack that has actual things in in it that weigh something. And I notice that usually when someone I know posts about it or some challenge they are "doing" they are definitely the hyper social media attention starved folks. But like I said, to each their own.Rucking as an activity is kind of weird and seems to attract wannabe military and survivalist types
Most of my riding crew, including myself, backcountry ski or splitboard in the winter, which I guess is kind of like what you’re talking about.Has anyone tried rucking as cross training during the off-season? I was reading about it and thought it might be something I enjoy. I don't really like running at all, and it doesn't snow enough here to snowshoe or xc ski.
