Pre Competition 25m Pistol & 10m Air Pistol MOP Training Plan

This is the first in a series of four full day MOP team group training plans with coach Daniel Goberville to prepare the French 25m Pistol national championships. Air pistol training is also included to keep the skill and to improve for all other pistol shooting.

Pistol Grip Training Plan

Part of my work with Philippe Stiel involved consolidating and learning pistol technique basics that I had not really acquired because of learning to shoot mostly by myself. In this session we worked how to hold the grip of the pistol, to gain conscience of the effect of every finger on it and also to find the best grip for myself.

10 Weeks Pistol Training Program To Restart the Season After a Long Break

This 10-week training program to get back in shape after a long break comes from the mind and experience of coach Philippe Stiel, who is currently coaching Luxembourg’s pistol team and did the same for a long while with the Belgian national team (from where this training plan comes from). One of his shooters kept notes and was so kind as to share them with me. Philippe agreed immediately when I asked them if I could share them with you.

Delayed Trigger Training Plan

Coach Philippe Stiel sent this training plan after seeing good progress on his previous “daring trigger” training plan. Seeing that the learning was taking roots, he proposed to practice a slightly delayed trigger to profit of the settling of the sights.

IRS Cup 2022 Air Pistol Range Training

This is the training plan that Daniel Goberville sent to the Team M.O.P. members to do the day before the IRS Cup 2022 air pistol competition started to get used to the range and ready to perform.

Daring Trigger Training Plan

Daring to execute your trigger release the way it should be and forgetting about tens is a monumental issue for pistol shooters. To work on this, coach Philippe Stiel sent me this training plan for a moment where I was very hesitant and felt like my trigger finger was woodifying. Courage is needed, progress is not attained without audacity.

Pre Competition Back to Basics Training Plan

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.

Series & Concentration Notes & Training Plan

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.

Routines, Rituals and Superstitions Training

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.
