    Other/Mixed How Do You Ruck?

    I bought my first kettlebell after only having access to the bells at the gym. I've enjoyed being able to take it to a nearby park to work on some movements outside of my S&S practice. I have also enjoyed throwing the bell in my backpack, putting on a podcast and going for a walk around the...

    Other/Mixed Incidental rucking

    I have a new job and have moved to a new city. This has come with a lot of advantages, doing what I really want to do, having a garden and a garage which has become my own courage corner.
