5 Pax decided to brave what is known as The Devil’s Mile. Bear Crawls be damned…those Duck Walks are brutal! 3 PAX with full GoRuck weight, 1 light, and 1 naked (not literally).
Conditions: 42 degrees and dark
No COP…walking to the 1/4 mile track from the parking lot was warm-up enough.
Mosey to the running track.
Perform the following:
1/4 mile Bear Crawl
1/4 Duck Walk
30 Squat Presses with ruck
1/4 run/walk with ruck overhead
– So the bear crawls sucked. Duck walk – even worse. There are some concerns over the Duck Walk. Knee problems mostly. A few of the Pax resorted to a modified version, one that was less stress on the knees.
– A few suggestions up fro vote: eliminate the duck walk and replace with something else just as diabolical – but less strenuous on the knees; or perform each of the above at 100M increments with the pain stations at the end of each. 1 mile can still be achieved, but there won’t be one straight 1/4 mile of one exercise. Feedback is appreciated.
– The Devil’s Mile is here to stay! It’s ruck friendly and a nice breakup from the normal workout.
– One last thing to note…Magoo and TNT made the observation that a Duck Walk with a ruck looks oddly like a turtle.
