I am about to start with ruck running (running with a loaded backpack).
All I know about it is to build up the weight very gradually.
However, I would like to understand the proper form/posture for running with a loaded backpack. I assume shorter steps than usual. What else? Off the top of my head, I can only think of two added factors. Please add anything else you know from experience.
- Should I bend forward a little more? Or instead make an effort to stay upright?
- Should my strike (fore/mid/rear-foot) be modified in any way?
