If you want to join the Airborne Forces, you should pay special attention to your health and physical fitness before being drafted or before entering the school.
Get yourself physically fit. However, do not forget that an airborne soldier must be not only strong, but also enduring. That is why martial arts classes are ideal for such training. It will be nice if you visit the athletics section. When selecting candidates, both the sports category and other achievements are taken into account. So don't feel sorry for yourself and train hard to get the highest level possible. Your chances of getting into the Airborne Forces will increase if you also practice parachuting.
Take care of your health. Don't get bad habits at a young age. You must be in perfect health (fitness category "A") in order to be accepted into the airborne forces. That is why regularly undergo medical examinations and temper.
Get yourself mentally prepared. You must have a fairly serious motivation to serve in the Airborne Forces. So try to get a sober view of things and free yourself from romantic illusions. Any service (and even more so in these troops) is, first of all, hard work and constant psychological pressure.
When you are engaged in physical training, do not disregard your studies at school. You may need knowledge in mathematics, physics, chemistry, geography, biology, foreign languages, social studies. Moreover, this should be real knowledge, and not the minimum course required to pass the exam (especially if you decide to try to enter the Ryazan military school, which trains specialists for the Airborne Forces).
If you have close relatives with a criminal record, then you will not be able to apply for service in the ranks of the Airborne Forces. Do not try to hide this from the recruiting office or the admissions office of the school, as all information provided by recruits or applicants is always carefully checked.
