Introduction-Sota211

Post by Sota211 »

Hello Everyone!

I am currently 18 and a senior in highschool. I enlisted this August into the Delayed Entry Program with an 11X Option 40 contract. My Ship date is 20180703. I look forward to the valuable information that this website offers and the great help that the mentors provide.

Sota,
1. You took more than 72 hours to post your AFPT results.
2. It has been more than a week since you signed onto the five mentee thread, and still no task-list.
Looks like lack of motivation and inattention to details.

Sorry Ranger Jim. Due to my lack of motivation, Inattention to detail and school just starting has caused me to fail your instructions. I will get working on my task list ASAP, and will do 40+1 push-ups for inattention to detail and lack of motivation.

Sota211, those are good scores. Make sure you are paying attention to form (doing them right.) That's a good 2 mile time too. Keep driving on.

Roger Ranger Jim, will get working on it ASAP.

After watching my form my new APFT scores are:

Push-ups- 59
Sit-ups- 64
2 Mile Run- 12:50
Pull-ups- 13

While watching my form I noticed that I would sag on the last few push-ups, my fingers would unlock a few times on my sit-ups and I would kip on a few of my pull-ups.
