# How much can you belay?

When they outweigh their climbers, heavy belayers must make an extra effort to jump. In terms of the magic number, a carabiner is around 60 percent efficient. As a result, I believe the limit is 130 percent of the climber's weight in relation to the belayer's weight. There is no practical limit if the belayer anchors in. However, it is important to remember that heavier people can carry more weight than shown here.

In addition, the belayer needs to be able to react quickly to any problems that may arise. If the belayer isn't ready or capable of reacting, then the rope should not be used because it would only cause harm. Finally, the distance between the ground and the belayer needs to be enough so that if the climber falls, he won't hit him. Typically, this means about 10 feet (3 m).

I have never heard of anyone being hurt by too much force being applied during a belay. However, I have also never been involved in a belay where someone didn't go overboard trying to protect themselves from falling rocks or ice.

The real question is: How much can you belay? The answer is that it depends on how big you are, how strong you are, what type of rock you're climbing on, and how experienced you are. There is no right or wrong amount of force to apply during a belay. It all depends on your situation and how you feel about risk.

## How much weight can you hang from a stud?

A screw in the stud can sustain between 80 and 100 lbs when hanging goods on it. Depending on its length, a whole stud wall might sustain up to. 500 lbs.

The answer depends on how long the screw is and what type of screw is used. A drywall screw has a shorter head than a stainless steel screw or an aluminum screw, so it can only support as much weight as you can put on it. A metal screw can support more weight because it has more mass to lift with each turn of the screwdriver. Aluminum screws are usually less expensive than stainless steel screws but they tend to break under heavy loadings. Stainless steel screws are best for heavy use because they will not rust and they are more resistant to breaking.

Sturdy hooks or shelves can be used to support loads greater than what a single screw can withstand. If you know that every screw in your project will be able to support at least half of its maximum loading, then you can rely on them all being able to hold their own weight plus whatever else you decide to hang from them.

## How heavy should you ruck?

We propose the same weight as our regular event load: 30 pounds for anybody weighing 150 pounds or more, and 20 pounds for anyone weighing less than 150 pounds. Make any necessary adjustments based on your current fitness level. Some exercises will necessitate higher weights, but less is typically more. Don't feel obligated to lift everything we ask of you; pick your battles wisely.

There are many factors that go into determining how much you should be carrying on your back. Body weight and mass distribution are two important factors. If you're overweight or have a large belly, you'll need to compensate by making your rucks heavier.

Size matters when it comes to how much you should be lifting, especially if you plan to do any kind of endurance activity like running with a ruck or hiking with a ruck. The larger your bones, muscles, and organs, the more weight you can carry. So if you have a big frame, you can carry more than someone who is smaller built. However, too much weight can be harmful to your health. If you carry too much body weight, you increase your risk of injury from conditions such as low back pain, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

You should also consider your current fitness level and what activities you plan to include in your ruck program.
