Hey Vossman,

That is a really unique opportunity. Glad you got to meet some of the men who do it day in and day out. What are you doing to prepare for the military and your OPT40?

Please always capitalize Ranger here. Besides that, we ask for proper grammar, although it's never perfect. I figure you are not on a computer typing to us but try a bit harder.

Have you checked in with your recruiter lately? Are they still saying August for a 11X OPT40?

Ranger, Disinfertention

Yes sir, wont happen again sir.

Yes sir, still around august. To prepare I am doing the following:

-5 mile runs for time. Always shoot for under 40 min.
-Lots of push ups, sit ups, pull ups and chin ups. (I realize you can be told to do either pull ups or chin ups depending on your superiors opinion.)
-Run, run, run. Lots of it.
-1-2 times a week ruck in pants and combat boots with a 45-50 pound ruck.
-quick showers
-5:15 wake up and plan to get all my PT/breakfast in before 09.
-weight lifting
-taking practice ASFAB test and studying up on my Ranger history.


Thats about it. I got to meet Ranger, Puckett at Ranger grad. Very inspirational person.


Thank you.

Ralph Puckett is a pretty impressive individual. He definitely ranks in an elite few folks that I say I am proud to just to have gotten a chance to speak to and shake his hand.

Sounds like you are taking your preparation seriously. Use this site as a resource for physical training. There is a lot of information on it. Also, Google or whatever search engine you like can give you tons of free advice too.

You're still a young adult though. Remember to have some fun. There is plenty of time to be serious and wake up super early in the military.

Well shit in a bucket! We got us another Vossman in the wire eh? Unless his mom is a hot model (the only kind I banged) I don't think I'm involved in this one. By the way, maybe we call him Vossman26 instead of my handle?

I'm trying to keep sane over here in the Helmand. I don't get on very often as it is usually a pain with the internet. Good to hear from you guys too!

Rangers, After a long process I have finally secured/signed an 11x Option 40 contract. I swore in today and I ship January second. I am extremely excited and very prepared as I've had a long time to get ready. Looking forward to this and figured id post an update on the situation.

Thank you.

Step 1 complete. Congrats on getting a contract... not everyone does. You have a couple months to train up.
-Check your PMs.
-Self administer an APFT with chin-ups. Record your scores here.
-You're going to need a new username. Reply to my PM with a new one.

Excellent numbers.

What is your plan to increase your 2 minute push-up performance?

Did you do pull-ups or chin-ups? Re-read my instructions and then research which ones are used during Airborne school and RASP.

Ranger Disinfetention,

I do both to strengthen different parts of body but I realize that in Rasp it is chin up. (palms facing you).

I am actually following the push up plan I stumbled across on here a couple months back. I can't recall who wrote it but it is great.
