What are you doing to get ready for backpack hunting

Up to 5 mile ruck runs with 60lbs of sand in my ruck and the 4-month horseman training program Where are my fellow devils at?!

As many reps as possible in 20 minutes of
5 handstand pushups

Play with kiddo, walk dog, hike with dog, do yardwork, bowhunt, squeeze in another workout if feeling good, watch a football game, drink a beer or two..

Eat real food: wild game, garden vegetables, fruit, other animals, occasional bowl of ice cream, some pizza, a few sandwiches.

Take the stairs, do something the hard way, try not to be a wuss.
i am at a disadvantage because i live 12' above sea level. I do a lot of the goruck challenges and that helps a ton. I do however get the benefit of working out outside all winter in shorts. I load my ruck and hike/swim through a 6 mile path through the ocean sandbars. its awesome work out.

I have recently added the gas mask to my work outs and it gets me a lot of attention from the police as people report some weirdo. Its fun.
I love the gas mask idea. Anything to get them going.
With the backpack on around the block, some people think
I am a homeless old man looking for a back yard to hide in. LOL
