The IRS cup in Belgium is next week and my shooting has degraded a lot in the last week and a half (results and SCATT files at the end of this post). To combat this and get ready for the competition Daniel Goberville has sent me this training plan to reconstruct my shooting sequence.
When coach Philippe Stiel sent me this training plan he included this helpful explanation on the importance and how to manage shot series and concentration to help maintain attention where is should be all along a 60 shot match.
Philippe Stiel sent an very interesting training program and notes about routines, rituals, and superstitions, explaining how they interact, how they are important, and why. I really liked how he went deep into explaining things to make sure that I understood and value them.
Philippe Stiel sent these three pistol training plans as an alternative to the technical training I was doing, focused mainly on hand pressure and trigger execution. Each of these plans should take about 1h45′ and are geared to work a bit of everything so as not to get bored, taking into consideration that shooting is a repetition sport and that there are not thousands of different exercises available.
Finally, my motivation is back 🙂 I’m training and competing with a lighter heart that looks forward to the challenge ahead.
Following the last two training plans (9 ring hold and hardcore holds), this new pistol plans by Philippe focus on trigger execution and hand holding pressure on the grip.
I’m struggling with motivation to train and I cannot really pinpoint a single thing that is driving this lack of motivation for shooting. I barely ever get to train at home and when I go to the range I cut it short and don’t enjoy it as much.
While working with Philippe he encouraged me to be more active in creating my own training plans and exercises. Something I wanted to improve at the time was my hold endurance. This is the training plan I used to get a strong arm.
After a short break from training, Philippe Stiel gave me this plan to train at home and at the range geared towards improving:
* My hold within the 9 ring and my perception of it.
* The start of my trigger release.
