Honestly, when I came down to rucking for time for selections, schools, etc... I ALWAYS went as fast as I could, every moment at all times. I did not try to game it or figure out the science of it. If you go full retard with it and have heart, you’ll do well.

Thank you sir, I've always done that with my runs and it always seemed to work out.

If you are planning on going to Selection I would recommend a ruck that weights at least 60 lbs. The standard was 45 lbs when I went through without water and it is weighed after specific events. If you have access to a beach sand is a great resistance and you will come across that on the road March and land nav or do hills. Both build up leg strength and do it as fast as you can and try to increase speed and difficulty with each evolution.

Steep hills 1/4 mile length at the least. Balls out. Put this at the end of your training ruck-run if you can. Do your best to sprint it when you're exhausted. Good luck.

Walk the uphills, run the downhills. Can’t fail.
