I’ve been scouring social media for the past few days because I’ve gotten a few messages about training for selection and the gist of several of them had me wondering if some of the potential candidates were reading a few things that are out on social media and taking it as gospel.

The first and I’ve gotten several of these questions and they’re similar in the vein where young guys ask:

“Should I be training with 85-100 pound rucksacks to prepare for Selection?

The answer is, and we’ve stated that here and we’ll do it again is an emphatical No.
