Ruck Training – Alpha – Week 6

Below is a ruck training guide for Week 6 of our Alpha Ruck Training Program.

If you are unfamiliar with our training, check out this overview and this disclaimer.

Finally, we don’t charge anything for our GORUCK training guides or our weekly programming. We just ask that if you like our stuff, please share it with your friends, ruck clubs, and strangers on the internet.


  • Go for a ruck carrying a Water Can.
    • Light – 1 mile. Water Can should be 1/2 full.
    • Tough – 2 miles. Water Can should be 2/3 full.
    • Heavy – 2 miles. Water Can should be full.
  • If you don’t have a Water Can, get creative and figure it out.
