Having a Ranger Tab and the Special Forces Tab, I get asked all the time which school was harder. The answer is complicated. Both schools are physically and mentally challenging, but in different ways. I generally say that Ranger school sucks more but the Q course is harder. Let me explain more…..and I will do so using 8 distinct criteria….. Duration & Phases, Graduation Rates, Food & Sleep, Ruck Weights, Patrol Distances, and Patrol Standards.
*** Point of Clarification*** SFAS is only 24 days. Looking for a fitness program to prepare you for Ranger School or the Special Forces Qualification Course? I recommend “Special Operations Fitness.” “Special Operations Fitness” is a 12 week unconventional training program designed to shred body fat, increase cardio vascular efficiency and muscular strength, teach or reinforce essential self-defense techniques, build confidence, and increase physical and mental performance.
