As we have all been spending a lot more time at home, some of us have been taking up hobbies. Whether it's taking part in live social media workouts at home or getting outdoors for a run or jog, it is likely you have tried something to keep fit during this time. The question is, have you heard of tabbing, rucking or yomping?

If you are in the military you will know what these terms mean, but if you aren't, it is essentially walking at a fast pace with a large weighted backpack (Bergen/Daysac). Thanks to the weight involved this pushes you more than a normal run or jog burning more calories in the long run. It can provide many benefits when carrying out this form of fitness as well as being a free form of exercise so there is no need to pay for any gym fees.
