Re: 11b/ranger school

I can think of two ways for you to get a slot:

1. Reenlist for it.
2. Go through you COC and try to get a slot through your Schools NCO. How many slots they have will depend on what unit you are in (82nd, 101st, 25th, and of course 75th Ranger Regiment will more slots than heavy units).

Good luck.

Re: 11b/ranger school

As far as training up for Ranger school I would say just do crossfit. Also when you enlist in the Army under a ranger contract you go to the Ranger battalion, not Ranger school. They are 2 totally different things.
Yeah you can reenlist for it if you have a job that well allow it aka combat arms.

navy seals WOD. Give that try. I would say to try that for 1-2 workouts a week and do regular crossfit the other days. Build up to doing the Seal workouts 3 times a week. They are long and hard. But they will get you through any training you will need for Ranger School.

Re: 11b/ranger school

just kinda answered my own question with option 40, u go to airborne school following that you go to RIP (Ranger induc. program) if you pass that you get assigned to a ranger battalion, then im guessing over time you just go im not sure exactly how it works.. but thats my take on it

Re: 11b/ranger school

Make sure you really understand the difference between an 11B with a Ranger school slot and a Ranger bat 11B. I believe the 75th is currently maxed-out on infantry, so good luck getting a slot. As far as working out, rucking and running and climbing will do it. Don't go too crazy on the rucking, lest you injure yourself.
