3rd Pre Competition 10m + 25m Pistol MOP Training Plan

A new MOP training plan focused on 25m pistol and is a follow up of training plan 1 and training plan 2, under the direction of coach Daniel Goberville. Challenges, new final format training, medal matches… all for Precision and Rapid Fire Pistol (RFP). A whole day of training at the 25m range 🙂

2nd Pre Competition 25m Pistol MOP Training Plan

This MOP training plan focuses on 25m pistol and is a follow up of this training plan. Under the direction of coach Daniel Goberville we spent a full day training at the 25m range and it was great to be outdoors for a change (the ASTir Creil range has really nice installations), although my thumb ended up sore from all the loading, which was a great incentive to find ways to protect it.

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.

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.

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.

Motivation Is Back

Finally, my motivation is back 🙂 I’m training and competing with a lighter heart that looks forward to the challenge ahead.

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.

Contracts and Challenges Technique for Pistol Shooting Coordination

All the pistol coaches I’ve worked with use challenges and contracts in their training plans, usually adding more demand as competitions approach. After my first training session with Philippe Stiel he sent me a great email explaining contracts, so as to change my training plan and to improve coordination in training and competition. So far I’ve also worked with challenges and contracts with coaches Daniel Goberville, Santiago Gómez Salgado and Dina Aspandiyarova. This is my interpretation of their take on the use of challenges and contracts, with examples.

RIAC 2021 Evaluation

I am always looking forward competing at RIAC, a three day air pistol and rifle competition organized by Luxembourg’s sport shooting federation. These competitions offer a great opportunity to learn as you challenge yourself at different times of the day on the same event for three days, with the pressure of competition and surrounded by great air pistol shooters. This is what changed since the last progress report and during the competition, plus how to work on my biggest issue at each of the matches.
