For the most part Rangers excelled in PT all the way from the start. Of course there are those that had to push even harder because some people, regardless of fitness level, just suck at pushups, situps, whatever. One thing to keep in mind is the 60 pushups you did in Basic might equate to 30 or so in RIP and so on. Huge fucking difference between someone who's been in leg land for their entire career grading you as there is with a tabbed-out E-6 repeating " 30, 30, 30, 30.........."
I spent 2 years in Germany before I saw the light and arrived at 2nd Bn.. I had always maxed the PT test but I noticed a considerable "drop" in my score when there was someone grading me who's sole purpose in life wasn't just eating vanilla pudding and staring aimlessly at Nuke bunkers all day.
Keep in mind that good enough isn't in the Regiment. If you can do 70 pushups then why cant you do 80, shit, you've got 2 minutes, get off your ass!!!
That reminds me, your'e not sitting down, eating Twinkies and thinking about how dreamy the cast of Dawson's Creek is are you!!!
You know the deal!!!!
