  • This really confuses me....wtf

    Ok well, as some of you may know I got taped at the recruiters and was 31% bf. I have a lot of muscle mass to me, but also some visible fat. I am 6'0 220 lbs. I can't make it until I get down to 24% bf or 197 lbs. I can easily pass the push ups, sit ups and mile reqs.


    Then I see this, how in the world???

    Just trying to be real with you, if you are taping at 31% then you dont have a lot of muscle mass. To tape like that you must have a skinny neck and a bunch of weight around your gut.

      And to play devils advocate, there may be a medical reason this Soldier has let himself go. He definitely didn't enlist this way. It may seem unfair on the outside, but it's a reality.

      Bottomline, try to be as healthy as you can when you enlist because it gets harder when you get older and injuries do happen.

        I read up on this guy a while ago.

        Turns out he's former Active Duty and let himself go after he ETS'ed, but with the needs for manpower they called him up while he was IRR.

          I do have a lot of muscle mass, but like you said, my neck did get taped at 16 inches which is small, and my gut could be smaller, it's all from drinking. But I am working on it!

                I guess my question is, why would they let someone deploy like that?

                  Because when the IRR calls you up they don't care what kind of shape you're in.
