Introduction- Carson

Post by Thecarsonlane » March 9th, 2019, 1:38 pm

Good evening rangers.

My name is Carson, i am 18 years old and currently still in highschool (I graduate in may). I plan on enlisting as a 13F with a option 40 contract but if thats not available i will decide to either volunteer or continue my training until one is. I am in pretty good physical shape right now, however i am suffering from runners knee due to the excessive amount of running i did as a soccer player. I have started therapy to try and speed the process up and have ceased running for a bit. I am very excited to meet the members on this site and gain knowledge so i can hopefully pass RASP!

Welcome to ArmyRanger.com.

Don't push to speed up your therapy. Your body will thank you later on.

Looking forward to your progress.

Good evening rangers.
Ensure you read the rules for this forum and all other forums. Capitalization and proper grammar in general are important parts of interacting here. If you miss capitalizing Ranger again I'll just delete this post and make you start over. None of us are perfect and I realize many folks use phones/tablets to chat here. Hopefully I don't have to mention it again.

Welcome to the site. If you found ArmyRanger.com, you are at least trying to take your goals seriously. Understanding that you are recovering, are you able to execute pushups, situps, and pullups? If so I recommend you self administer a modified APFT if you cannot run. Post the results here when complete or state why you can't complete it.

Have you spoken to a recruiter yet? You are closing in on graduation and if you have a specific goal of 13F OPT 40 I would highly encourage you to meet that goal by starting the process now and waiting for the contract YOU want. It is your career. Make informed decisions and don't compromise.

What position did you play for soccer? Did you play any other sports? Bend it like Beckham?

I apologize for the misspelling Ranger Disinfertention. It will not happen again, I should’ve glanced over my spelling. I am able to self-execute a modified APFT here is what I got: 51 pushups, 65 situps, and 17 pull ups.

I have spoken to a recruiter however I am just a bit hesitant about how long my recovery will take. I will definitely talk to them more and gather information on openings.

I played goalkeeper and striker for SAF Fc from 2012-2016 and I played goalkeeper for Atlanta United U17 team from 2016-2018. I also punted for my football team when I was a junior.

Really cool stuff - guessing you're not half bad as a keeper. I just played for my podunk small school... Still love the sport though. Did some intramural stuff while in the military but haven't played in years unfortunately.

Definitely make sure you are recovered and well. No need to go into not fully healed. Those are good starting numbers for the APFT. Definitely look into improving them the best you can without prolonging your recovery time.

I was decent for someone at 5’9! I will be working hard to improve my APFT while I recover Ranger Disinfertention!
