How heavily muscled are the ones chosen to go on as Legionnaires generally? I hear even those who look like professional bodybuilders get turned down.
BUFF as in watermelons under the arms, crush a frying pan type big. Should be able to deadlift 250kgs minimum!

This thread Buff is like it belongs to some advertising on a gay magazine in WH Smith’s from the 70s this ain’t a wind up is it?
Well each to their own sometimes I think ignoring a thread and not engaging is more powerful we should be more selective on the questions and motivation behind them, well been winding me up for a bit now.
BUFF is just a term people use or Schmoe. Only g@y if you want it to be Ginge 😉

Or How about Swole 😄

And to go right of course when we hit Paris after outer mere tour Duran Duran we’re doing the James Bond film and at night drinking and parting in Cactus Charlie’s and their hotel mad 10 days I will have to do a bit of memory digging but once checked my facts I will share it or not!
I like Duran Duran. Listened them live once.

Probably not very. A soldier doesn't want big puffy muscles due to the metabolic price tag associated with maintaining them, instead aim for smaller but denser and harder muscles - take myself as an example ;)5110

Thanks for what your insight Cobra to what a soldier wants/needs. However the legion needs all kinds otherwise it will become a stencil army based on (your ideas) and any other army's ideas.
You're looking ripped as sexpert says:
"now gimme 20" :rolleyes:
"now get a hold of that mop and bucket and give me until lunch time" o_O:cautious:

The army knows lots of squatting/stress exercises to turn you into a sweating heap.

It takes all kinds to make a Legion Etrangere ...
but no where it stipulates in the contract you sign, that you will be treated with kindness ! (just saying)
By the photo : you are in top pic condition. ...but under weight and in size to make a permanent impression. ..and you know it
Ego aside
Eat healthy
Think healthy
Train healthy
Think healthy
Legion or not

Wow ! You look like a perfect specimen for legion,
Now you have to prove some other things, Not to me, but to guys who are recruiters in FFL.

But yes, we are glad to have sexy picture of you. Essential some of as . (I won't go deeper into this ;))
If you want ... I would link you with some of them. ;)

Anyway... or you are realizing that you are wearing terrorist scarf?!?

I know that all (Most of them) SF guys wearing that and they say that is because they want to blend in. :) ....That is stupid.
I can not stand Westerners with terrorist scarf? That meaningless. I think that only purpose of wearing it is to say people back home "Look at me ! I'm a tough guy!!! :)" (Isn't it?)

That look obvious and they look far from what their first intention was. Listen to me and don't blend in that mold. Unless they want to send some message (an guessing that you are not on that level).
Don't do that!. Just do your stuff for Joining FFL. If I can I would help you gladly ... Just leave that terrorist scarf back home!

If someone want to go deeper into this I'm glad to defend my positions, but I think there is no reason for that.
