What is the best thing to shove in my bergen or rucksack?
Can you buy weights that are specific to the task?
I may sound dumb to the Pro's here but everyone has to learn sometime eh?
Any advice would be greatly Appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
At the risk of being 'wah'd' I'd say it depends on where you are going, at the moment I'm using house bricks, but then I'm not out in the ooloo. If you find yourself on top of Pen Y Fan with a bergan full of bricks when you break an ankle you'll wish you'd taken something more useful, probably.
Your body will only ever accept a certain amount of running with weight, so save it for when you really can't avoid it.
Whilst training, tab with weight, run without.
The only people who can run with weight and get away with it, are those who are extremely lucky (1 in a million) or those who devote their lives to the pursuit of physical excellence (that ain't you, fatty! )
if goin on the hills etc then u put sleeping bag in ..change of clothes....bags 4 clothes wet..dry..food..emergency foil blanket..whistle..flare.torch..maps..first aid kit..food..fluids..spare footwear..these r the basics./.add as u c fit.the weight will soon accumalate.unless training 4 the regiment or similar i would suggest u avoid this form of training as problems in later life will develop by way of arthritis etc...just running in boots will develop your fitness levels.
