Players can level up the Weight Lifting perk by sprinting for several meters while having their maximum load capacity at 75% or more. Each rank for this perk requires more meters, meaning it can take a lot of time for you to reach the master level. The best way to level up Weight Lifting fast in Starfield is by crafting an aid item called “Amp,” which increases your movement speed by 35% for 2 minutes. Using this item will allow you to cover more ground while sprinting, in other words, more meters.

Players can craft the Amp aid item by heading to any Pharmaceutical Lab in the game. The one I used for this experiment was located on the lodge’s second floor in New Atlantis, so feel free to use that one. You can also get a Pharmaceutical Lab installed into your ship.

Amp ingredients consist of 1 Toxin, 2 Argon, and 1 Metabolic Agent. You can buy all of these items from Jemison Mercantile in New Atlantis and other vendors across the galaxy.

As for the weight capacity requirement for the Weight Lifting perk, just make sure you pick up and loot a lot of items and reach 75% of your total Weight. So, for example, if your load capacity is 135kg, you need at least 102kg in your inventory while sprinting.
