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.
Three Alternative Pistol Training Plans
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.
Hand Pressure and Trigger Pistol Training Plans
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.
Hardcore Hold Training
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.
How to Click a Pistol: ISSF Windage and Elevation Sighting Instructions
Don’t be afraid to click. Changes in lighting, contrast, and your own body mean that you will be clicking not only when you change ranges, but also as a match or training session progress. There’s no such thing as a “zero” or perfect sight alignment for pistol shooting. The point of impact with the exact same pistol and settings will change from shooter to shooter, as we all size differently and the relationship of our eyes, body, and sights change from person to person.
