  • A Great Old Exercise

    Memories!!!!!!!!!

    I have no idea how many reps I've done over the years

    I use a medicine ball and rebound board these day

    But what is being shown here is a great addition to your conditioning workout

    Useta do something similar for shoulders and arms for archery. Slower, and more deliberate, but helped keep in trim for drawing heavier-weight compound bows.

      Another good handgun exercise,

      Get a 1 pound weight with a nylon web strap and hang it on the muzzle of your gun. Will increase your steadiness and duration. You can also use the weight and a penny balanced on the muzzle end of your gun if there is a flat spot that will allow.

        Balancing a quarter or pencil on the barrel, and dry firing without dropping it, is a great way to work on trigger control. Never tried the weight hanging on the muzzle, though I did useta use wrist weights for the same basic reason back in the archery days. Ace2

          How so? What's the benefit for the defensive minded?

            A pound of lead 6 inch ahead of the hand really torques the grip and strengthens the forearm. A flat strap doesn't obscure the sights.

              Static strength versus active strength

              Static strength is great for the bullseye shooter but does little for self defense
