What the heck is rucking?
We’re so glad you asked. Even if you’re familiar with the term, we’ve upped the ante and made your ruck-sessions a little more badass with our brand new Bonehead Ruck Weight Plates.
Rucking is simple: it’s walking, with a weighted pack on your back, with the intent to torch calories, push yourself, and grow in strength and endurance.
Our new Bonehead Ruck Weight Plates are seriously hardcore and play no games. As soon as you load up your plate into your pack and strap in, you’ll want to cue “Fuel” by Metallica to get the full bad-ass effect.
Rucking can be done literally anywhere, which is only a part of why these new weights are so versatile. Whether you’re out for a walk with your dog, scaling some tough elevation on a hike, running your favorite trail, or jamming out at a death metal concert, you can be sure that your Bonehead Ruck Weight Plate will keep up and push your limits.
Not only can these plates be used for rucking, but the handles strategically placed on the top and bottom of each plate make for easy handling and extreme versatility. This plate can do almost anything a kettlebell can, making it an easy choice for a one-stop piece of equipment, no matter your fitness level.
Swings, armwork, groundwork, and other lifts… you name it. Our skull-shaped Ruck Weight Plate is designed to tackle it all.
We offer four different weights for these plates, starting with 10lbs, and following with 20lbs, 30lbs, and 45lbs. If you’re brand new to rucking and aren’t sure which to choose, we can help! We’ve got some tips to help you be successful in your rucking adventures.
First of all, when choosing a weight, it’s important to consider a few things: your body weight and your fitness level.
As a beginner, we recommend trying out a 10lb weight until you get the hang of it, or no more than 10% of your bodyweight (this will make more sense in a second… keep reading).
Now, if you’re an intermediate fitnesser, we recommend the 20lb weight if your bodyweight is sitting under 150lbs, and the 30lb weight if you’re sitting over 150lbs. If you’re a beginner at rucking but have some fitness background, we’d recommend applying the 10% of bodyweight rule to make sure you’re getting the grind you’re looking for in a ruck.
Now, the 45lb weight is the one we haven’t mentioned yet. This big ‘ole weight is NOT playing around. We’d only recommend this one if you’re seriously into fitness and have experience with rucking. It gets much heavier, much faster than one might expect, so be prepared for a hardcore workout with the 45lb weight plate.
What else can we help you with? Do you have experience with rucking? Are you inclined to get into it with our multi-purpose, ultra-versatile Bonehead Ruck Weight Plate?
