GORUCK Training

Every 2023 GORUCK Tribe Theme, Workout, Book, and Additional Tasks

2023 is the third year of GORUCK Tribe and GORUCK is evolving the program a little. It now includes access to GORUCK Sandbag and Ruck Training with the membership and, for the first time in 2 year, patches will have a splash of color. In addition, GOURCK is mixing in some various media besides books in the monthly tasking, so keep an eye out for a few movies in the mix.

If you’re interested in past challenges, you can find the 2021 Tribe workouts, books, and tasks and the 2022 Tribe workouts, books, and tasks.

Every month has a new theme, ruck assignment, workout, book, and additional tasking. Below will serve as a comprehensive list of every month for 2022.

January 2023 GORUCK Tribe Theme, Workout, Book, and Tasks

Theme: Courage

Book:
Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals – Oliver Burkeman

Rucking:
Ruck 1 mile a day all month long.

Additional Challenge is to add more weight each week:

Week 1: Ruck with your baseline rucking weight (10-30lbs)
Week 2: Baseline weight + 10lbs
Week 3: Baseline weight + 20lbs
Week 4: Baseline Weight + 30lbs
You can make (approximate) weight using ruck plates, sandbags, and/or KBs.

Additional Task:
Write down something positive that you want to do this year, and what you need to do to be ready. As opposed to cutting things out that you think of as negative, add a goal to your life that is positive. It works better.

Workout: BASELINE FUNCTIONAL FITNESS TEST (BFF)

Complete the BFF in January then retake it throughout the year to chart your improvement.

Functions Check:
Grab your Sandbag or Sand Kettlebell – 50lbs for men and 30lbs for women – and carry it as quickly as you can for ONE (1) MILE.
