A double interview with one of the top shooting power duos: Zorana Arunović and Jelena Arunović.
Shooting Is More Than Just a Static Sport
Dec 1, 2020
Even though shooting is considered more of a static sport, being physically ready can help you in many ways. Maintaining general fitness is important for a healthy life and, thankfully, this “generality” doesn’t require much additional work to be suitable for shooters: we don’t need target workouts for a specific muscle group. In addition to shooting practice, there is also no need to spend hours and hours in fitness to build up/maintain strength, explosiveness, or endurance. What we need is merely an active counterbalance to the static part of our sport and some basic exercises to hold our bodies in an upright position.
Have you ever felt back pains during a shooting session? Have you ever felt like you ran a marathon after finishing a 3P match? Have you ever lost your focus in the middle of the competition and couldn’t find a way back?
Find your own workout routine
As everybody and every body is different, we are not here to tell you what to do, how to do it, and how intense your workouts should be. However, at Aiming Art we have tried many things ranging from zero exercise to running stairs across the whole basketball arena and we have discovered what works for us best. Experiment and find your own way too!
The physical copy of Shooting Notes helps you structure your approach to shooting practice and guides you through writing shooting analysis. As much as we would like to include other topics too, there is just not enough space for everything. That is why Practical Pointers come in handy. If you would like Aiming Art to give more specific examples on specific workout routine for shooters, leave a reply below!
