Introduction- Anthony

Post by autrea » March 23rd, 2019, 7:29 pm

Hello, I'm Anthony, a 20-year-old aspiring Ranger, whose life choices have kept me from enlisting. I grew up a fatass and let myself go to get up to 380 lbs by the age of 18. The one thing that got me off my ass was this mini series called The Warfighters. After watching that I decided I had enough of being the lazy pos I was and lost the full 200 lbs in a year.I don't think I'm ready to enlist so I'll just be training building myself from the ground up. I bought a ruckbag and boots to start this shit show. Hopefully I'll see ya'll soon, RLTW.

Also, a big thanks to everyone who has helped me in the snapchat group

Anthony,

Thanks for posting an intro. Glad you are here with us. If you are interested in becoming an Army Ranger, this is a really solid start. Have you talked to a recruiter yet? What have you been doing if you are not in school at your age? You've accomplished some amazing things in the world of fitness which speaks volumes to who you are - but how much further can you go?

Have you ever given yourself an APFT since you are interested in joining the military?

I have talked to a few recruiters in my area. I'm still a bit overweight. I'm about 213 lbs and I need to get down to at least 180 lbs. I finished my associates degree, and I've just been working on and off. I really want to build myself up from the ground up. I have RASP programs that I will be starting soon and help from fellow Rangers.

Welcome to the site Anthony,

From a personal trainers prospective. What you did during the past year as astonishing, and there are not many people in this world with the mental strength to be able to accomplish that, huge congrats to you.

You seem to have that under control right now. Just don't loose focus.

Keep at it. Don't over train. Post a reply as soon as you read this on your progress and every two weeks until you find a recruiter.
