Physical preparation:
Fitness is a factor in athletic performance. The main objective of the development of the physical condition of the archer is to ensure the maintenance of quality in the repetition and therefore the stability of the performance. To do this, the duration and intensity of the sessions must be adapted to the age of the archers and their physical capacity.

To avoid injury, you must warm up before each session and strengthen your muscles. It’s easy, just use an elastic.
Organize your movement:

The organization of the movement aims to respect mechanical operation. The archer must at the same time direct his bow towards the center of the target, from the beginning of the movement, pull the rope continuously, throughout the movement and release the rope while maintaining the traction effort until the beginning of the movement, to the arrow reaches the target.

The placement of the shoulder blades
Place your shoulder blade:
The orientation of the arm is conditioned by the orientation of the head of the humerus itself which is closely related to the position and orientation of the glenoid cavity. Now, the latter is determined by the position of the scapula. Thus, the position of the scapula determines directly the orientation of the arm.

Although training is collective, monitoring and observation are individualized. The time of a session must be between 1:30 and 2:00 and must allow observing each. The training volume is always proportional to the number of arrows drawn. The beginner must not have the constraint of controlling his bow, as he must shoot many quality arrows to progress.
Archery in the field
I shoot in the field: The archers are grouped in platoons that move from target to target following a markup to respect safety. They fire on 12 or 24 targets located at known or unknown distances in a very varied environment (plain, wood, mountain …). Field shooting archers must consider light and changing winds to compensate for the effect on aiming and shooting.

Promoting field shooting: in many countries, field shooting is the most common discipline. A shooting shooter in the field has the same bases as a shooter on target and very often one can find a good shooting archer on target become also a good archer of shooting in the field. In field shooting the main is to use the terrain as it is.

Archery in nature and 3D

The nature course: In this discipline the archers shoot at targets of paper or coats of arms in which animals of different sizes appear; 42 targets in varied terrain constitute a normal course. The shooting distances range between 5 and 40 meters and are still unknown to archers who must appreciate them when they arrive at the target.

To properly adjust your bow

Adjustment of the classic arc: For an arc to perform optimally, it is imperative to meet certain physical rules and to do this, it must be properly adjusted. The purpose of this booklet is to provide the basis for the adjustment of a classic bow to archers who want to have a functional and performing material.

The adjustment of a pulley arc
The adjustment of the pulley bow: thanks to its off-center pulleys, this specific arc, sophisticated evolution of the traditional bow, uses a leverage. Its setting remains delicate and is very different from that of a classic bow.
