DS is 5'9" 193 lbs which is overweight for his height. I'm hoping no issues on R-Day. I'm wondering if he should try to get down to 180 by R-Day? He is well built with very little body fat. he works out everyday and also runs 3 miles each morning. He did 12 pull-ups on his CFA and ran a 6:05 mile. He has BIG quads from years of ice hockey and he is really strong. Should he try to slim down or stay strong like he is? He is a 3rd time reapplicant so he is older than most incoming plebes, at 21 he is a man now. His brother was 6'2" 190 when at USMA so he had no issues.
Infantry Colonel here. Pass the tape...no issue.
Commanders run our Army...not someone in "Battalion Operations."
Standards are standards...over table weight...get taped...meet the standard. My guess is the majority of WP football players are taped. No big deal.
