Establishing a Pistol Shooting Sequence

One of the things that all coaches ask for is your shooting sequence (also called routine and process). This is was my shot process when I started training with Philippe Stiel, with his feedback on each point. Check out this list of shooting routines for inspiration in establishing yours and to see how my shooting sequence has changed over time.

Disappointment and Acceptance

Contrary to what you see in the picture, the last few days have not been happy. My performance at the French national air pistol competition was very disappointing and it has taken me five days to accept the team medal and believe in that smile.

Pre Competition French Nationals Training Plan For 10m Precision & Standard Air Pistol

To prepare next week’s French National Championship air pistol competition, Daniel brought in the MOP team for a full day to finish up our training. We trained for both precision and standard air pistol, and did a very interesting session to help us deal with the pressure and have sensible goals.

Pistol Trigger Coordination Training Plan With Contrats

After my first training with Philippe Stiel and the discussion about contracts, he gave me this pistol coordination training plan to prepare for the coming competitions.

A Week of Progress Validation

Last week has been great with multiple personal bests. A lot of pieces have fallen into place and I saw progress in the three competitions I shot. This is what I’ve learned.

Physical Training Plan For Pistol Vacations

A general conditioning training plan, to maintain or improve physical endurance and some of the muscles that we use for shooting.

First Pistol Competitions of 2022

After a well deserved winter break getting some sun and good vibes in Madrid, training got serious quickly with an MOP session on January 3rd and the regional Picardie championships on January 7th. Full throttle as soon as I got back!

My First Training With Philippe Stiel

These are the notes from my first ever training session with Philippe Stiel, former coach of the Belgian pistol national team. He’s the only ISSF pistol coach I found in Belgium and the commute to the training range was manageable with a new born and a small kid at home. Working with Philippe was great and it also gave me the opportunity to meet the friendly people at the CCAT range.

Precision & Standard Air Pistol Training Plan

This is the last of my training plans with Santiago Gómez Salgado so far. He sent it after my qualification for the regional championships and keeps in mind that my focus is in precision 10m air pistol but that I was also participating in rapid fire events. It is a two week work plan for home and the range.
