NOTE: Use Extreme Caution and Safety while performing the Go Ruck PT. Anyone with previous joint issues, especially in the KNEES, needs to be very careful. Hauling extra weight, hiking on trails, and running steps/hills can be very stressful on the joints of the lower body. Be smart and use common sense. This is a challenging, but rewarding PT!
