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.
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.
I’ve already shared the first 10m air pistol plan I received from Santiago López Salgado, the first pistol coach I managed to get a hold of. I’m going to share all of the training plans that I got from him here, and I think that these notes he sent me can help you understand…
This year for my birthday I offered myself a training with Daniel Goberville in France, just three hours away from home. He’s the father and trainer of Céline Goberville (#2 in the World Ranking and Olympic silver medalist) and has been in charge of training for the French national team. The session was very interesting and I learned things that should improve my shooting. Just talking with him was a pleasure.
