So, it's not quite carrying game home from the hunt but...
20# in vest (that one goes up to 75, with optional attachment to add 25 more. Kettlebell in ruck at just over 40# and the pole is 22.6# So basically an m249. In that photo I'm at 351.6lbs with all the 'gear'.
How do YOU torture yourself?
I currently put 25kg (just over 55lbs, 39% of my body-weight) in a backpack when I go for my walks. Anywhere from 10min, to two 35min sessions, to 2h. If I'm out most of the day, it'll drop to 20kg (44lbs/31.2%).
I also sometimes take two kettlebells at 12kg (26.4lbs/18.75%) each and just carry them from room to room as I do my chores.
After my last exam (tomorrow), I'll start upping my 25kg to 27.5kg (60lbs/42.9%) and doing walks round the block (0.3-0.4 miles) with the kettle-bells.
Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.
I get blunter and more narcissistic by the day.
I'd apologize, but...
