Balance Experiment Results

Going back to basics and reexamining aspects of my technique that were long integrated is proving succesful. After discoverring when and why I cant my pistol sights, I now know the best way to balance my stance and the optimal slope of my current shooting shoes. Plus, I have also learned about my trigger shoe position.

When & Why I Cant My Pistol Sights

In the last weeks of training I’ve been focusing a lot on body sensations and doing basic technique review, going element by element. One of the things I’ve noticed is exactly when and why I cant my pistol sights: this happens when …

It is still far from top form, but I can feel it coming 🙂 With the new training plan, this week I’ve seen and felt progress in the slowing down of my traces, how I feel and recall the shots, the tightness of aiming, and making the triggering of the shot a non event in itself. Today I shot a competition and it was much better than last week’s competition. This is what I’m doing and learning.

Hold slowing down at last!

Good news! Since the last update my arm has finally started to slow down and yesterday if felt normal 🙂 Scores are not improving much yet, but I can see the spread getting tighter and have felt some really good shots, which helps with visualization.

More Charge, Insight, and Changes

The good thing about having spent more days training since the last update is that everything is getting better. I feel better physically, I’m enjoying training, and the shots themselves are improving. This is what I’ve learned and what I’m going to do next.
