    This advice actually helped. It was a bitch, but it gave me tons of confidence. Thanks for the advice and info.

    • Add more weight and make your hikes longer as in 5-6 hours or 18+ miles.

  4. I would love to practices humps, but I can only do it in a non-military town. I can’t help but feel like a when pacing with a military pack on the side of the road.

    Will walking in a 40 pound weight vest give the same purpose ?

    Would walking the 2 miles in a 40 lb weight vest (high quality) with a few hills in the process work just as efficient ?

      What kills me is that im good at walking inclines for a couple miles nonstop, and walking with weight but I fucking suck at running. How is this ?

      • Not everyone is good at running, so just keep practicing and you should get better over time.

    • You need to try to follow the program that is written here. If you can’t, then do what you can.

    so far so good! Did my first hump today in my rural mountain Neighborhood. Followed the advice and did a 1 hour no break. Wasn’t hard and actually was fun pushing through up some hills. Speed consistency seems harder to focus on humping the first half hour mark rather than the second. Feels like a different long term focus, strength thing than a strenuous tired workout.

    • Good stuff. Try sticking to the above plan or make your own plan based off of this one and you should benefit from it. Keep us updated on your progress.

    So I’m guessing some like a USMC ILBE ruck sack would be a good pack to wear?

    • Any pack will work and the more realistic it is, the better, but it is not necessary.
