I think Tom may be on to something. A gentleman of leisure carrying a heavy racing form would be a good exercise. I might also suggest carrying a pint of your favorite chilled refreshing beverage. But all kidding aside, Fred has the best suggestion. Start walking long distances with your brogans and knapsack. You can stick lots or water bottles, rocks, or old Christmas fruitcakes in to approximate the weight you'll have to carry. In a fit of reenactor madness, I even did some interval training with my brogans on. Two minutes fast walking then thirty seconds run/jogging. Also something I may suggest to anyone who has a bad back, do stomach crunches. A physical therapy doc I talked to said that if strengthen you abdominal muscles, it helps to anchor your lower back and thus alleviates pain... which is a good thing. Anyway... just my 2 cents worth. Now wheres that pint?

Sincerely and with best regards,
