Weight Carrying

Any tips? Especially for running half hundredweight on your back or more, plus battle rig and bits of kit.

I remember a pro-tip from Jimothy:
"More stuff on your chest = higher centre of gravity = more load on core muscles

The reason why webbing has everything placed around your waist was to keep the centre of gravity low which means that only your legs are under load."

Speaking of which, a good article on LBE - http://www.odjournal.com/articles/regul ... Oct10.aspx ...

Either way, remember to shake-out your gear!
